Consensus: Despite a good performance by Orlando Jones, the movie is ruined by a ridiculous, messy plot and fails to generate laughs.

This is a film that's better than it has any right to be.

Violent waste of talent.

It's too violent, too muddled and too pat to be much more than an average evening's entertainment on UPN.

Houston Chronicle

The movie has more product placements than halftime at the Super Bowl.

Piling double-cross upon deception at a speed that quickly outpaces the audience's interest in what's happening.

Throw two very different people together. Then put them on the run, shot at by both police and bad guys. The recipe has produced some funny movies. Double Take isn't one of them.

I think Double Take would have worked much better as a simple buddy comedy, without trying to have the plot of a serious thriller.

OMG this movie is comedy!! Definitely one of Eddie Griffin's funniest movies! And Orlando Jones was on point too!
Jason Spencer
I thought this was funny at parts and entertaining. It's not great though and the plot has been seen in a lot of different movies over the years.
Steven Vincent Gee
Fun comedy with some twists and turns in it, especially at the end. Eddie Griffin is a comic genious. And Orlando Jones's not bad himself.
