  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Renaissance art conservator Amanda Pierce (Potter) finds her boyfriend in bed with someone else, and quickly and unexpectedly moves into an awesome Manhattan apartment with four pretentious supermodels. Anyway, from a window in her apartment, Amanda can spy on Jim Winston (Prinze, Jr.), the guy that she

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a nicely rendered picture, with images that are sharp and detailed, though some scenes exhibit an intentionally soft focus.

Even though I was extremely excited to not see any references to an Original Web site, that jubilation soon deflated once I realized all that is available can be seen using my DVD player and TV.
