Everything about this movie I love. I love both Drew Barrymore and Ben Stiller too!
They are so endearing and convincing as a newly married couple.
It starts out that this young married couple are having a hard time finding the house of thier dreams in their price range. It seems almost too good to be true when they find a duplex near the big city life in Brooklyn, it is beautiful and spacious, and the downfall is that it comes with a very, VERY old woman who rents the upstairs apartment.

Because of a clause in her rental agreement, they cannot kick her out,but being that she is old, they figure she will die soon enough, So they buy the place and move in.

Suddenly the old lady seems healthy as a horse, and is a constant nuisance to them.
She keeps them awake all night with her blaring TV, Always bothering them for favors etc.
As things continue to go from bad to worse, they decide to have a hit on her, and hire a hit man to do it...Like everything else, that goes terribly wrong, too.

This movie is full of mishaps, one after another, and soon you will be rooting for them to kill the old hag :)
There are a few twists that will surprise you in the end, but I guarantee it will keep you laughing !

Highly reccomended, and one you will want to watch over and over.

3.0 out of 5 stars crude but often amusing comedy January 27, 2005
Format:DVD
In Danny De Vito's "Duplex," Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore play a young couple who buy a "dream apartment" in Brooklyn whose amenities include everything two upwardly mobile yuppies could possibly want: ample space, solid wood floors, three glorious fireplaces, and, above all, a quiet environment where Alex, a budding novelist, can spend his days writing in uninterrupted peace and quiet. Or so they think...for, unfortunately, the place also comes replete with what turns out to be the tenant from hell, a doddering old woman who lives on the second floor and who makes life miserable for the two of them with her continually blaring television and her constant intrusions into their daily lives. Finally driven to the breaking point, Alex and Nancy decide to take matters into their own hands in order to rid themselves of this human pest in any way they can.

"Duplex" is, essentially, a one-joke comedy and, as such, it does suffer from the occupational hazard common to all one-joke comedies of built-in repetitiousness. However, the writing has a surprisingly dark edge to it that lifts the film above the run-of-the-Hollywood-comedy-mill. I must confess to having a certain weakness for dotty old lady comedies, counting among my favorite films the original British classic "The Lady killers" from 1955. Eileen Essel is so delightful as the bete noire of the piece that it's hard not to fall under the spell of both her character and the film itself. De Vito, in a return to the black comedy form that served him so well in "The War of the Roses," keeps the comedy tough and brutal, even if it means bludgeoning the audience over the head a bit in the process.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE CLAPPER August 25, 2005
Format:DVD
Yes, I had never heard of this movie until my girlfriend rented it one night. I loved Zoolander so I wasn't that surprised to like this. Anywho..the whole "Clapper" scene was so stupid I almost puked I was laughing so hard.Honestly we kept backing up the movie just for that scene. Just watching Ben Stillers face contort in agony was great. Great Friday night movie worth watching again!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Old Gal is Smart November 12, 2008
By JP
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A friend at work recommended that I get this movie after telling her about the crazy old bat that lives in the condo above me. I laughed so hard at some of the scenes, learned a few tricks to use myself, and gave the old lady in the movie an A+ because she is way smarter than the old battle-ax I have to contend with everyday. This movie is a "must see" for anyone who lives below some old goat in an apartment or condo. The old lady is the optitome of the classical "neighbor from hell." I think we all can relate to this to some degree, especially those of us who live way too close to others!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny - slapstick - not a keeper ... August 15, 2004
Format:DVD
This is a comedy about a young couple who decides to buy a duplex just outside New York City. They have an irritating old woman living upstairs in a rent controlled apartment that they own as part of the property. He's a writer, struggling to finish his second novel. She's the supportive wife going off to work at a magazine in NY. The little old woman is a very old widow.

During the course of the movie, the old woman continuously disturbs their sleep, destroys the writer's ability to finish his work, and generally disrupts the peace and tranquility they mistakenly thought they would attain with the purchase of the house.

What follows is a myriad of very entertaining, slapstick comedy and a murder plot. This movie is funny, but somehow just misses the mark. So much more could have been done with the plot and parts of the story just fall flat. Though this is an entertaining movie I recommend that you rent, don't buy. You'll watch it once and live happily without watching it ever again. It is most definitely not a keeper.
