It's too violent, too muddled and too pat to be much more than an average evening's entertainment on UPN.

Piling double-cross upon deception at a speed that quickly outpaces the audience's interest in what's happening.

Wickedly funny.

The movie has more product placements than halftime at the Super Bowl.

Throw two very different people together. Then put them on the run, shot at by both police and bad guys. The recipe has produced some funny movies. Double Take isn't one of them.

Once past the insanity, the movie achieves a strange sort of brilliance.

A mess of half-baked gags in an uneasy mix of buddy film and on-the-road adventure.

Gallo has delivered a clever suspense comedy that, thanks to a taut script, creative direction, and first-rate performances from its leads.

The legendary British novelist is probably turning over in his grave at being associated with this witless farrago.

If you doze or play your GameBoy for an hour or so in the middle of the movie, you might find it an agreeable time-waster.

Double Take is the kind of double-triple-reverse movie that can drive you nuts because you can't count on anything in the plot.

As if to compensate for this lack of focus, all the spats are enacted at maximum volume, pitched so high that we often don't know how to take them.

The first hour of the story, whose rampant unexplained mysteries will leave you scratching your head in wonderment.

Slick, self-assured, and thoroughly awful, Double Take is a primo contender for worst movie of 2001.

The kind of movie you'll encounter in the wasteland of late-night cable -- and watch with a measure of awe.

Another racial cartoon buddy movie that eagerly flogs its best laugh -- indeed, its only laugh -- in the trailer.

Let's hope that next time Jones chooses a movie that's worth a second look.

If Big Momma's House made you belly-laugh, Double Take won't. If Scary Movie gave you convulsions, Double Take won't. If The Nutty Professor left you delirious, Double Take ... heck, you know the drill.
