The one thing I regret about this film is that I didn't get the opportunity to see it in a theater. I'm truly puzzled by the negative reviews on Amazon.

This isn't a film to watch while you're doing something else; fixing dinner, checking your emails, etc. The screenplay was brilliant and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I never lost interest, not for one moment. Clive and Julia have terrific chemistry and I loved the dialogue.

This film plays to an intelligent audience and it keeps you on your toes. I've watched so many films where the ending is predictable. There was nothing predictable about "Duplicity". It may have you feeling that you've nailed it, only to turn around and pull the rug out from under your feet.

I'm very selective about the films I actually choose to purchase. When I finished watching this last night, I knew I had to have my own copy and I want one with all of the bells and whistles, including interviews with the Director, Producer, actors, etc. I'm watching it again tonight and that's a rave for me!

I love Clive Owen and he has some really memorable lines. It's great to see Julia Roberts back in full force. She's as stunning as ever and plays this role with great finesse.

If you want an action paced thriller (ho hum), this isn't your movie. No graphic sex scenes either but lots of great sexual chemistry. I hope to see Clive & Julia team up again soon.

The entire cast is brilliant! Paul Giamatti and Tom Wilkinson fit their roles like a pair of old shoes. I don't know how anyone could find this film boring. I found it suspenseful and I was on the edge of my seat more than once. There is nothing predictable about this film. It has elements of "Sting", one of my favorite films of all time. Duplicity is absolutely one of my favorite films of '09!

I found this film very confusing. I realize it is an elaborate spy vs. spy in a corporate espionage matter. One spy is Julia Roberts and the other is Clive Owen. At first it seems like she is the one with the upper hand as she rolls him after one wild night. Then the scene shifts and he has gotten one over on her. They leap in and out of bed at various points because they are wildly attracted to one another.

It didn't work for me. If sparks were jumping between these two, if love and lust were in the air between them, I couldn't sense it. So there were two things we were supposed to care about: would Julia and Clive get together and, secondly, which of their clients would win in the spy war? More than an hour into this film, I realized I did not care about the resolution of either issue. I stopped watching it, I was that bored.

I am not a huge fan of Julia Roberts although I think she is talented. She just rarely does it for me as a romantic interest. Conversely, I LOVE Clive Owen and it is very rare for me to be bored with him. I also really liked CLOSER which also featured Owen and Roberts. They didn't need wild attraction to one another in that film though.

Much to my surprise, the NEW YORK TIMES absolutely loved this movie. Its review found this movie a stunning pairing of Roberts and Owen plus the spy scenario vastly entertaining. Its review says, "It's a caper movie, a love story -- with Clive Owen and Julia Roberts, no less -- an extra-dry corporate satire. However you describe it, 'Duplicity' is superior entertainment, the most elegantly pleasurable movie of its kind to come around in a very long time." I was shocked to read this. I read the whole review and it's as if we were seeing two different movies!

Duplicity is the latest movie written and directed by Tony Gilroy (I loved Michael Clayton). I will tell you only the barest of details because if ever there is a movie you should nothing about it is this one: Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are spies. This film is a sexy, suspenseful, funny and smart spy caper. I loved it throughout, and I loved it even more when it finished. Go watch it now.

Having just finished watching this movie I was suprised to see that it got such low ratings on Amazon. I completely disagree with the majority of reviews - I found Duplicity fascinating from start to finish. Yes, you have to think to get a grasp of the storyline and I find that a good thing. Most movies these days are so utterly boring and mindless, but unfortunately that seems to be what the majority prefers... If you like a challenge for a change, you will enjoy Duplicity!

This film - to judge both by the reviews here and by the hubbub over A O Scott's very positive Times review - clearly polarises viewers. I thought it fantastic, with far deeper and more controlled performances by both leads than I've seen previously, together with a solid supporting cast, great locations and a seriously clever script, but for others, evidently, its lack of slickness, predictability and cardboard cutout indications of who's bad, who's good, who's with (or not with) whom has clearly struck a nerve.

It's a good, complicated, and pretty cleverly structured film with stylish but credible performances to match. If you can cope with the notion of a spy thriller that doesn't have a car chase or an explosion and/or a romantic film that doesn't end in a big white wedding - which is, evidently, too much to ask of many reviewers here and elsewhere - grab with both hands.
