Duplicity parents guide


Overall C+

Opportunity only knocks once and Claire Stenwick (Julia Roberts) intends to answer the door. But in order to do so, the corporate spy is going to need the help of a rival colleague named Ray Koval (Clive Owen). Although it doesn't take much to convince Ray to get involved in the perfect double-crossing plot, stealing company secrets may prove easier than learning to trust one another--especially when mutual romantic attraction starts to get in the way.
