Julia has a way about her. A sexy, silly way that never fails. And Clive...can handle it. When these two act in a room, the electricity screws up the lights.
It's about time for a corporate spy, but I'm a lover, romcom and Tony Gilroy (the writer and director) delivers. Duplicity is delicious.
I could go on about Julia and Clive, who previously worked together in 2004's Closer, but why? It's obvious they are a good match banter-wise and aren't bad to look at for either sexes.
What it IS good for is a good time. No end of the world scenarios, no constant 14 year-old humor, just some good ole corporate "voyeurism," back-stabbing, ego bashing and failed love avoidance. What's not to like?
Put it this way, it's a movie about people with jobs! Pretty people with jobs! And they're gonna stick it to the man! Now that's a recession movie, and like I said...I like it! I also happen to like the fact that she's a fabulous 40+ and not playing a 29 year old.
Take your date to Duplicity, it'll pay off later, trust me.
FYI, Knowing and I Love You Man are both probably worth seeing...on DVD.
