From writer/director Tony Gilroy (seven-time Oscar(r)-nominated Michael Clayton) comes the film critics are raving about: "Roberts and Owen have sizzling chemistry in this instant classic." (Lou Lumenick, New York Post)

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With its smart writing delivered by an in-synch quartet, savor Duplicity as the ideal spring gift.
Rotten: I started out loving Duplicity; by the end, I wanted to strangle it.
Fresh: Duplicity is an enormously enjoyable hybrid, a romantic comedy set at the center of a caper movie.
Fresh: A pleasant big-studio diversion, a screwball romance with beautiful movie stars set in gorgeous hotel rooms, deluxe office spaces and corporate jets. It's smart, it's for grown-ups and it lets Julia Roberts laugh, if just once.
I found the movie to be easy to watch, quite funny and overall well made. I agree with one of the reviews that the chemistry wasn't quite there between the two actors.
Smart, sassy, doesn't take itself too seriously ...
NY Times said, when the movie first came out: "If what thrills you is the swift-moving, unrelenting contest between equal and opposing forces, then the movies you seek out are surely the great romantic comedies of the studio era, verbal boxing matches that draw blood and end in kisses. And you have to go back that far — to the glory days of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, let’s say — to find a duel of sharp wits, hidden agendas and simmering desires as satisfying as what transpires between Julia Roberts and Clive Owen....It’s a sharp, sexy comedy masquerading as a twisty tale of intrigue, and vice versa." Good fun for grownups who can grasp a nonlinear story.
Close, but no Cigar!
I had high hopes for this movie, unfortunately it missed the mark. Almost,is not quiet there! Wait for an unfortunate friend to buy the movie and borrow it.
