The movie Duplicity starring Julia Roberts (love her) and Clive Owen (love him). This movie pits these two beautiful people together once again and in a much more enjoyable way than in their last pairing in Closer. Closer was the most horrible waste of time ever.

Duplicity is about two spies from two different international spies one from the British version of the CIA called MI-6. Many might recognize this agency as the one that gave James Bond his license to kill. The next agency is the not so covert CIA which is the agency Julia Roberts' character Claire depicts. They meet one clandestine afternoon in Dubai at a party at the American Consulate. The movie is out of order but still easy to follow. I am not going to ruin the movie for anyone, but lets just say the movie lives up to its name by ultimately duping the two agents who think they are playing everyone else.

I give it *** 3 stars for interesting story and for keeping me guessing. Too often, I can predict the ending of a movie before it even gets five minutes into the film, but this one was a pleasant and not so surprising ending. Roberts and Owen still have chemistry and Roberts is back to the old actress that we all know and love. This one is worth the money so all of you who are waiting for movies to see that are worth the 10 bucks it costs to see it, this one is worth the money.
