You simply haven't had this much fun at the multiplex in a long, long time.

Tony Gilroy's directorial follow up to the phenomenal Michael Clayton is an impressive addition to his short but impressive filmography.

I'm sure if I saw it a second time, I'd find the little hints Gilroy plants throughout particularly delicious. But why bother? It didn't exactly grab me by the neck the first time.

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are reunited for the first time since Closer, and they're a messed up couple again. But this time they're secret agents, which is cooler.

When it comes to sorting out where we stand with someone, we're all spies. Tony Gilroy realizes that romance done right involves invigorating risk, and "Duplicity" offers a bracing, beguiling shell game of behavior to complement the light shenanigans.

A brain-bending, sleekly twisted puzzle.

It might be saying something that I preferred to see [Giamatti and Wilkinson] in action than the two actual leads of the film.

Duplicity features the sort of story screenwriters dream of crafting in order to show off their aptitude.

The results are mistimed and misshapen, like Lubitsch after a vasectomy

The film's greatest pleasure is in the snappy dialogue Gilroy crafts for the capable duo of Roberts and Owen... [Blu-ray]

You gotta be flawless to tell a story out of sequence. This ain't no Memento. God, Julia is getting old.

It's not unfair to say that Duplicity is Michael Clayton on laughing gas. What's remarkable is that both movies pretty much work.

[Tony] Gilroy may have taken his time honing his voice as a filmmaker, but there's little doubt that he's got it down to a science at this point.

Duplicity is like sitting in a two-hour lecture from a college professor who reads straight from the text and never makes eye contact. Do you know there is an audience here?

This movie wasn't firing on all cylinders despite some of them being great cylinders.

... Plays like a more sophisticated Ocean's Eleven, the extra heft coming from its corporate setting.

'Duplicity' is a cleverly charming and sophisticated film about treacherous people.

It won't receive the critical ballyhoo of his previous film, but where Gilroy's 'Michael Clayton' lacked imagination and surprise, 'Duplicity' is a fun, witty romp.
