Watch It: Duplex

3.0 out of 5 stars Wolf in sheep’s clothing
Slid this into the DVD player on a rainy afternoon, and spent two hours smiling now and then. Duplex is not a great art film, nor does it pretend or aim to be. But it’s good for a few laughs, and other than using the old formula – one desperate problem solving attempt after another going south – it was pleasant enough. Eileen Essell, whom I’ve never seen before (at least I’m not aware of having seen her in anything) was a hoot as the Irish wolf in sheep’s clothing. Drew Barrymore and Ben Stiller were just as you’d expect. This movie will give you a new appreciation for rent control!
