Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Duplicity is an unpretentious pleasure, combining as it does the deft plotting of Gilroy, the unforced acting of charismatic stars Roberts and Owen (not to mention nice turns by supporting performers Tom Wilkenson and Paul Giamatti as the rival CEOs of Burkett & Randle and Qualcrom), and the suspense inherent in this sort of motion picture.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'Duplicity' is entertaining, but the complexities of its plot keep it from being really involving: When nothing is as it seems, why care? The fun is in watching Roberts and Owen fencing with dialogue, keeping straight faces, trying to read each other's minds.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Though gadgetry has its expected place in Duplicity, this brainy lark doesn't go in for tailfins morphing into machine guns.

TWENTYSOMETHINGS:About half the males loved it and most of the rest rated it average. The females didn't enjoy it as much. Only a very small number loved it. Most rated it from above average to average with a few even lower.
ADULTS:Adult males didn't enjoy "Duplicity" as much as younger males. Only a very tiny percentage loved it. Most rated it above average to average with quite a few rating it below average.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
CIA officer Claire Stenwick (Roberts) and MI6 agent Ray Koval (Owen) have left the world of government intelligence to cash in on the highly profitable cold war raging between two rival multinational corporations. Their mission? Secure the formula for a product that will bring a fortune to the company that patents it first. 

For their employers--industry titan Howard Tully (Tom Wilkinson) and buccaneer CEO Dick Garsik (Paul Giamatti)-- nothing is out of bounds. But as the stakes rise, the mystery deepens and the tactics get dirtier, the trickiest secret for Claire and Ray is their growing attraction. And as they each try to stay one double-cross ahead, two career loners find their schemes endangered by the only thing they can't cheat their way out of: love.
