Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is a film that's better than it has any right to be."
‑ Ray Conlogue, Globe and Mail
"Wickedly funny."
‑ Gene Seymour, Newsday
"I think Double Take would have worked much better as a simple buddy comedy, without trying to have the plot of a serious thriller."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"...this film goes beyond bad; it's borderline racist."
‑ Larry Carroll, Countingdown.com
"Not quite a dog of a movie, but it's certainly not worth barking about."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"It's too violent, too muddled and too pat to be much more than an average evening's entertainment on UPN."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Violent waste of talent."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"About the best thing that can be said for Double Take is that the morning after seeing it you don't really remember much about it."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"The plot itself is simple. The twists are simply thrown in to make it seem complex."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"Webster's Dictionary defines the word bad as: 'the opposite of good.' After seeing the film -- I am sure Webster will add Double Take to its definition."
‑ Tony Toscano, Talking Pictures (U.S.)
"Piling double-cross upon deception at a speed that quickly outpaces the audience's interest in what's happening."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"...rent Midnight Run instead..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Suffers from a scattershot approach to rapid-fire jokes that usually miss their mark, though Griffin's comedic talents brighten the proceedings and Jones does his part to add his own flavor to the mix."
‑ Dwayne E. Leslie, Boxoffice Magazine
"Eighty-nine of the longest minutes ever endured in recent cinema."
‑ Karen Moline, Movieline
"Very slim pickin's."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
