Why did this not become a total box office smash??? (by SamDub)
This film is one of the funniest, I have seen in a long long time. Funnier than "50 First Dates" and "Along Came Polly", DUPLEX should have done much better at the box office because it's really really funny. Eileen Essel as Mrs. Connolly is just hysterical. Go and rent or buy it on DVD!
A nice diversion with Slapstick Humor (by brown19)
I know many people put this movie down as being "cheap" or "lame" or "stupid,"but I could not disagree more. The moment I saw this movie in the theater previews I knew it would be something I would enjoy. People put too much emphasis on "substance" in movies today, and when you get a movie that seems to lack this kind of substance, it is easy to put it down.Duplex is different. It takes slapstick comedy, and silly situations to a new level. For me personally, every scene was hilarious, and the premise was a silly one, but is one that really drew me into <more>
the movie. Movies like this are not meant to be taken seriously, they are meant to be laughed at and enjoyed. I think that this is where the hard core critics of this movie make a mistake. They do not see it for what it really is. It is an excellent way to pass an afternoon, and is just plain funny.I would recommend this movie to anyone, because I believe it was one of the best movies I have seen in a movie theater, and is hands down worth the price of the movie ticket. Sometimes all you need is something to take your mind off your troubles, and this movie is that something.
This movie is absolutely superior. Danny Devito has taken comedy to a new level. Kudos to the gorgeous Drew Barrymore and hilarious Ben Stiller. This movie does not contain a single dull moment in my opinion. Do yourself a favor and go see or rent this movie, you will not regret it. May be offensive to a small minority of people, but to most of us, it is pure genius.

I read reviews from "supposed experts" of the movie business before going to see this. I didn't believe their put-downs about this movie because the premise sounded unique and I love the actors that were in the movie so I thought it at least deserved a shot. The only dull thing in the movie is the opening sequence of animation, but beyond that the suspense keeps rising and so does your laughter. Sometimes you want to strangle the old lady and sometimes you want to help her. If you don't like vomiting and messy chocolate be forewarned. The end of the movie twists as you would <more>
have never guessed. I recommend this for anyone to see unless your a snobby movie critic or bellow the age of 12.Its too bad Eileen "plays the old lady" can't win an academy award for her performance. It was very good, without her the movie wouldn't of been as great as it was.
"Duplex" it's an excellent comedy. Not just for the acting, but also for the plot. The way the characters interact it's just perfect. Although the outstanding performance is the one by Eileen Essell, playing delightfully Mrs. Conelly's character.It tells the story about Alex Ben Stiller and Nancy Drew Barrymore , who buy a beautiful duplex apartment in Brooklyn, but its second floor is occupied by an annoying tenant: Mrs. Conelly, an old-Irish woman who will make their lives completely miserable.As the movie develops, it shows all the possible ways in which the couple <more>
tries to get rid of the old lady, without any success. These situations, plus the way Mrs. Conelly handles them, are hilarious.It has an unexpected ending, but the movie is very well-done. When I went to rent it, I had absolutely no idea I was about to rent, which I personally think, one of the best comedies.To sum up, if you're about to go for a great comedy, I strongly suggest you go for "Duplex". I'm sure you won't regret yourself.
I don't see why people don't like this movie? This movie was so funny in someparts my dad was laughing so hard that you couldn't even hear him laugh anymore it was just this silent clicking of his jaw. I was also laughing the hardest i've laughed in a long time. Don't listen to the uptight people on here saying this movie wasn't funny or wasn't in good taste. Come on people its a comedy! Ben Stiller's character is alot like Gaylord Focker in meet the parents but thats what acting is about and that's why we love seeing the same people act in different movies <more>
again and again because they are familiar to us.If you want a great laugh do yourself a favour and go see duplex!Brisbane_guy :D
From the twisted mind of Danny DeVito comes this story in the style of "War of the Roses". Here, a nice NY couple finally find their dream home only to discover that they have a built in tenant. Not exactly what they were looking for but it really can't be that bad can it? The little old lady that lives upstairs turns out to be a nightmare and a half. In a variety of scenarios, most comical and some just plain, outright strange, the nice couple turn into psycho landlords and the nice old lady turns into the crazy bat upstairs. In the end, the twist comes as a true surprise. A <more>
hilarious, laugh out loud movie, this was really enjoyable and a must watch. DeVito has done it again and I can't wait to see what's coming next!!!8/10
i think that this is an entertaining and very funny comedy from Danny DeVito, Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore are well cast, but the real star of the film is Eileen Essel as the old lady.Stiller and Barrymore are a married couple who buy a duplex in Brooklyn, they then find out that there is an old tenant who lives upstairs, she then starts to cause havoc on their personal lives by playing the TV all night and getting Stiller to do her chores all day, instead of letting him write his new book. Then it gets too much for them and they decide it is time to kill her.There are some very funny <more>
slapstick comedy moments in this film, especially the scene where Stiller and Barrymore are giving the old lady C.P.R,There is also a nice twist at the end of the film.Danny De Vito decides to narrate the beginning and end of the story, Overall a nice little comedy with some very good comic performances by the main cast, some very funny jokes and a good script, 8/10
If you loved the original 'Ladykillers', you'll like 'Duplex' (by af40)
'Duplex' is a surprisingly funny movie. I say surprisingly because I don't usually find Ben Stiller movies to be all that funny, and the addition of Drew Barrymore doesn't tend to improve a comedy's prospects. The little old lady in the movie is eerily similar to the little old lady in a movie called 'The Ladykillers' 1955 . In that movie an elderly widowed woman -who looks astonishingly similar to the one in 'Duplex'- lives alone in a grand old house with her pet parrot, her beloved husband having been long-ago lost at sea. Although to the unsuspecting <more>
she may appear helpless and frail, there is much more vigor to her than meets the eye. The two characters share so many similarities that were the movies not separated by half a century, I could have sworn the same actress played both roles . As in 'Ladykillers', we can expect the feisty multi-generian to focus prominently in the plot's developments, and, as might be expected, do a series of one-ups on her competition. Other similarities abound. One difference between 'Ladykillers' and 'Duplex', however, is that while in the former we immediately want to root for the little old lady, in the latter our sympathies lie closer to Stiller's and Barrymore's characters. Eventually, we realize that a more devious plot is afoot, but not before Stiller and Barrymore decide to take matters into their own hands.
