A crude, disgusting, irritating, mean-spirited and unfunny dark comedy...

August 12, 2008
Despite confident direction and performances, it rarely lifts itself above the ordinary.

This numbing barrage of demolition humor scores only a modest laugh count.

The material is capably handled by director DeVito and lifted by Stiller, a dab hand at physical comedy who also exhibits some onscreen chemistry with Barrymore.

Expecting Stiller to look stressed and Barrymore to look sweet isn't exactly demanding too much of your stars.,

Hard as it is to care about these homicidal homemakers, it is harder still to laugh at them.

Offer[ed] as a grown-up variation of the kind of fart-and-vomit humor that's passed around at the cineplex every day. But why? It is what it is.

Contando com um bom desfecho (algo raro nos dias de hoje), Duplex representa um passatempo razoável.

There's a nice dark comedy in this script that's flattened by DeVito's direction, which continually opts for manic goofiness and cruel vulgarity.

Duplex collapses in rubble long before the duplex of the film does, and it's not even interesting wreckage.

not since 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane,' has geriatric terrorism been so creepy.

Had Danny DeVito been born British and a quarter-century earlier, he would have fit right in at Ealing Studios, the English outfit known for biting black comedies.

DeVito keeps hurling handfuls of well-funded excrement on the screen and expects us to think it's funny.
