Overview

Just how far would you go to have the home of your dreams all to yourself? A couple start asking themselves that very question in this dark comedy directed by Danny DeVito. Alex (Ben Stiller) and Nancy (Drew Barrymore) are a young couple who are happy and successful, but lack one thing that they truly want -- the perfect home in Manhattan. Alex and Nancy think they may have found just the place they've been looking for when they discover the bottom half of a beautiful old duplex has opened up. While the couple are delighted with their new flat, they discover it has one major disadvantage they hadn't counted on -- their upstairs neighbor, Mrs. Connelly (Eileen Essel), an elderly woman who soon makes their lives a living hell. Persuading Mrs. Connelly to move is fruitless, since she has a long term rent-controlled lease, and as things become more and more difficult, Alex and Nancy begin to wonder if she won't go away on her own, perhaps a more drastic (and permanent) solution may be in order. Duplex also stars Harvey Fierstein, Justin Theroux, James Remar, and Swoosie Kurtz.

This movie is a MUST SEE! This is an awesome movie and you will never stop laughing. The actors are great and Danny de Vito makes a great job directing the movie. WATCH IT!

Danny DeVito directed this black comedy about a couple the has moved into the living space of their dreams. Its a duplex, and a seemiling sweet little old lady that lives upstairs. Alex (Stiller) is tring to write a book and Mrs. Connlelly (the old lady) has Alex running around doing chores like helping her do laundry, going to the store, picking up her medcine, ect. And Nancy (Barrymore) has a job outside of work. She takes a day off and see how bad things get... Alex and Nancy's muderous schemes backfire every time. It is a very funny movie that I reccomonend to everyone. BUY IT!!!

And with Duplex, Ben Stiller has completely fallen off. Duplex lends itself very poorly to the &quot dark comedy&quot genre. Ahoy to having a bad taste in comedies and films in general!
