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.
"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.Read more ›
