Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Duplicity is well-crafted, smart, and often funny, but it's mostly more cerebral than visceral and features far too many plot twists.

Common Sense Says
Clever, complex romantic thriller is too twisty for tweens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this caper film isn't a tween-friendly romantic comedy. Although it's both romantic and comedic, it's also a cerebral spy thriller with so many twists that even some adults will be confused. And although the main characters are appealing and sympathetic, the truth is that they're ruthless corporate spies. They're often shown right before and after making love (bare-shouldered, and, in Clive Owen's case, bare-chested). They also discuss their sex life with innuendo and jokes about "legs in the air" and such. There isn't much violence aside from a humorous fight between two CEOs, but there's occasional strong language ("bulls--t," "goddamn," "d--k"), and drinking (all by adults).
