Seems like the "double" part of Double Take means that there are two different movies taking place here. On one hand, there's the excellent combative chemistry between the raunchy Eddie Griffin and the sly Orlando Jones. Their banter offers plenty of roll-in-the-aisles moments. The film's other half--an out-of-sync murder-mystery used only to string the duo along to their next interaction--is the problem.
Trading Places-style, the switched characters get wrapped up in a mess of a story involving a Mexican drug lord, laundered assets, the CIA, the FBI and dead people who aren't really dead. And that only gets in the way of the fun. You will laugh hard, trust us. But when these two aren't on, this Take's definitely off.
