Hollywood favorites Ben Stiller (Little Fockers) and Drew Barrymore (Going the Distance) lead a star-studded cast in this darkly hilarious comedy where one wrong move turns out to be a monumental mistake! Young and vibrant New Yorkers Alex (Stiller) and Nancy (Barrymore) have just found the perfect place to settle down and share a bright future. But their new home comes with a permanent fixture they didn't expect—an obnoxious elderly tenant who won't move out and refuses to die! Pushed to the edge of insanity as their dream home turns into a nightmare, it's only a matter of time before Alex and Nancy begin to entertain some truly sinister solutions to the problem! Directed by Danny DeVito, Duplex is another laugh-packed crowd-pleaser you don't want to miss!
MY BOSS'S DAUGHTER
When ambitious junior executive Tom Stansfield (Ashton Kutcher, No Strings Attached) accepts an invitation to the stately home of his grouchy boss (Terence Stamp), he thinks it's for a big date with his boss's sexy daughter (Tara Reid, Van Wilder). But Tom gets a big surprise when he's expected to house-sit! While he's left to hold down the fort, Tom's out-of-control co-workers begin showing up ready to party. Also featuring Molly Shannon and Carmen Electra.

I haven't actually seen My Boss's Daughter to give an honest opinion. But it's not the type of movie I would enjoy anyhow.
I bought this just for Duplex. As I imagine most people did. It's one of my favorite movies, and a terribly underrated comedy. The disk plays the movie just fine, and the picture is wonderful.
Now I was fully aware that I was getting a both movies when I bought this. However I assumed there was going to be two separate disks. Nope, just one.
My main complaint is that when it starts up, it automatically goes to the 'My Boss's Daughter' menu page, and forces me to navigate my way to the Duplex menu. Why does it start with the 'My Boss's Daughter' menu page? That makes no sense for people who just want to see Duplex.
Most double-feature DVDs bring you to a default page where you select what movie you want to see. Or at the very least, are double-sided with a movie n each side. Also there were no bonus features here. Which makes no sense, because there were bonus features on the original Duplex DVD. Why not just transfer them over?
I'm not asking for much, but we were treated so well by Miramax with the Duplex DVD release (two-disks, both full and wide screen versions of the film, bonus features, and all the other accoutrements you would expect to find with a well packaged DVD), but why can't we get that same special treatment with the Blu-Ray too?
I'm happy to see Duplex on Blu-Ray. But release a standalone bluray of Duplex.
Picture looks great as you would expect from a Blu-Ray, but the sound was horrid. I watched a different blu-ray before and another after and they both sounded great. This double feature just didnt cut it when it came to sound.
