Duplicity | 2009 | PG-13 | - 5.3.4

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen star as former spies for the CIA and MI6, respectively, who try to make money by using their talents in the more profitable world of business espionage. When they come up with a scheme that will set them up for life, their growing mutual attraction may not be enough to keep them from trying to trick each other at the same time. Also with Tom Wilkinson, Paul Giamatti and Rick Worthy. Directed by Tony Gilroy. [2:05]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A bare-chested man with a towel wrapped around his waist removes the towel (we do not see anything below the waist) and climbs into bed with a woman (we see her bare shoulders and back); they kiss, he reaches under the sheets, they continue to kiss, they stop and she dresses (we see the side of her bare breast).
 A man tries to seduce a woman, the woman appears disinterested, and we then see her pick up her panties off the floor of a hotel room while he sleeps bare-chested (it is implied that they have had sex). A man and a woman argue, they kiss and it is implied that they have sex. We see photographs of a man and a woman in an office, the woman is in varying stages of undress (we see her bare back as she is removing her bra) and another photo shows them kissing and it is implied that they had sex.
 A man and a woman kiss in a hotel room, the woman begins to unbutton her blouse, the man pulls her onto his lap and they kiss. A man and woman kiss in several scenes.
 A woman lies on a bed covered by a sheet and her bare shoulders and back are visible. A woman wears low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage, bare back and shoulders in several scenes throughout the movie.
 A woman tells a man to remove his bathrobe and he says, "I don't work naked." People listen to the pillow talk between a man and a woman. A woman holds up a thong and quizzes a man about finding it in his closet. A man makes a remark about a woman's legs being so high in the air (implying that she is promiscuous). People make a reference to the increase in pornography website searches conducted in an office.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two men yell at each other, we see angry hand gestures and facial expressions, they get closer to each other and one pokes the other in the chest; then one kicks the other in the chin and they end up grappling on the ground until other people break up the fight.
 Two men are told to leave a casino, one is slammed onto a bar and the other is held and handcuffed. A man is handcuffed and tape is place over his mouth and eyes; he struggles to get free and a shelf holding a large screen TV falls over (he is not harmed). A man bumps into another man on the street and he falls down. A man who appears drunk is escorted from a casino.
 A man and a woman speak to each other in a threatening manner (one tells the other, "I'll ruin you…"). A man yells at people in several scenes.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
