Head Over Heels | 2001 | PG-13 | - 6.4.4

Monica Potter plays an unlucky-at-love, newbie-to-New Yorker who falls for a man (Freddie Prinze Jr.) who's either her dream come true or the devil in spiffy clothes. Also with Brendan Beiser, China Chow, Tomiko Fraser, Raoul Ganeev, Ivana Milicevic, Shalom Harlow and Sara O'Hare. [1:27]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Several instances of sexual innuendo, including references to casual sex, male and female genitalia, ménage-à-trois, and homosexuality. A man and woman have sex in bed; we see the bare back of the woman (while she's straddling and moving on top of the man) and the man's bare chest. In one scene a dog jumps on a woman, knocks her down and starts humping her from behind (she's on her hands and knees, so it creates the brief illusion that they're having sex). A shirtless man and shirtless woman kiss passionately and then recline to have sex -- we then see them post-coitus; also four women look on from another apartment and talk about watching the two having sex. The camera catches two men embracing and evidently kissing; we see one man kiss the other on the neck. We see the bare necks, backs and shoulders of three topless women; we glimpse the side of one woman's breast. A woman puts her hand on another woman's clothed breast as they're lying in bed together; then they hold each other and cuddle. A woman grabs another woman's clothed behind. Three women squeeze their clothed nipples to make them erect before going into a party; in another scene women grab their clothed breasts. One woman looks up another woman's dress and tells her she can see her panties. We see a woman in her underwear (she's wearing a shirt). There are several references of a perverted uncle looking lustfully at his young niece and asking her to do things and play games that would turn him on. Two young elementary school girls are in a single man's apartment and comments are made about the girls being underage prostitutes. We see a sweaty, shirtless man working out and girls looking on, lustfully. We see a man in a woman's dress, spanking his clothed behind while dancing in front of a mirror. A few instances of passionate kissing. A man ogles a woman and then sticks out his tongue and makes perverse licking gestures at her. It's implied two women become lovers. Lots of cleavage. Talk about a woman wearing crotchless panties.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man punches another man in the face, giving him a bloody lip. A man is punched in the face and tackled. A man blows an inhaler (for asthma) in a man's eyes. A woman hits a man in the head with a shoe. A man throws knives at two men and pins their shirts against the wall. Threatening with guns and a few shots fired. We see the silhouette of a man grabbing a bat and apparently beating a woman to death. In a few scenes a big, playful dog jumps on a woman and knocks her down. A woman falls down the stairs. A woman with her eyes covered runs into walls and falls over furniture. A man sits on the toilet and we hear him make several gross, excremental sounds and he flatulates (a few women hear and smell this). Excrement shoots up out of a toilet and covers a few women in a bathroom stall.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
