New York yuppies try to bump off a sweet old lady for her rent-controlled apartment in Brooklyn. Alex (Stiller) and Nancy (Barrymore), however, didn't start out as would-be assassins in the name of real estate. After moving into a picture-perfect duplex downstairs from Mrs. Connell, they discover that, although very old and in poor health, she still manages a host of irksome behaviors. With her health not declining nearly fast enough, the senior-crazed couple are driven to desperate measures. Stiller is top-notch and Barrymore a worthy co-star despite a far-fetched plot that revenge comedy specialist/director DeVito ultimately doesn't sell.

Duplex was a weird movie. It was funny, but not your typical comedy, in my opinion. Drew Berrymore and Ben Stiller star in Duplex. They are both funny and I felt that they had good chemistry together. The movie wasn't that long, maybe about an hour and a half. It's probably not one of my favorite movies. I guess I was a bit disappointed with the movie. I thought it would have been funnier. It was still an okay movie though. I probably wouldn't go out and buy it though.
