Ray Pluto (Dennis Leary) is a New York City police detective who has been in an emotional slump since his wife and daughter died in an accident several years earlier. Ray's mood isn't lightened at all when he and his partner Jerry Cubbins (Steve Buscemi) stop into a fast food restaurant just as an armed robbery is taking place. Ray throws out his back while reaching

Despite some funny visual gags, this is one of DiCillo's disappointing comedies, also suffering from an unappealing turn from Elizabeth Hurley.

Perhaps if DiCillo's last two pictures weren't so clever, Double Whammy would stand on its individual merits a little more stably.

Nothing particularly exciting or boring about this movie.

It doesn't always mesh perfectly, but DiCillo is working with a broad palette and his ability to mix comedy and drama is shown at full effect.

Tries too hard, forcing off-the-wall dialogue where it doesn't belong.

Pedestrian and contrived.

Audience Reviews for Double Whammy

In a long line of off-beat comedies, "Double Whammy" has to come in as one of the twistiest out there. It never quite figures out what kind of movie it wants to be, making it an oddly enjoyable viewing experience. Sure, "Double Whammy" isn't anything special nor does it ever try to be. It's small-time, peculiar, original, and entertaining. This is a clever little motion picture.
