In the scene when Libby enters the BMW dealership and asks the salesman to run a credit check on Angela Greene, the salesman returns and provides her with a current address. However, in the next scene, when Libby attempts to find Angela in Colorado, a neighbor informs Libby that Angela died three years earlier. Therefore, there would have been no available credit report and current address for a person who had been dead for three years. See more »
Ever hear of Double Jeopardy? Fifth Amendment to the constitution?
Elizabeth 'Libby' Parsons:
It says no person can be convicted of the same crime twice, the state says you already killed your husband right? So, when you get out of here, you track him down, and you can kill him. You can walk up to him in Times Square put a gun to his head and pull the fucking trigger and there's nothing they can do about it! Kinda makes you feel all warm and tingly inside don't it?

Double Jeopardy? So they can't make me watch this twice!!!
Going into see this movie, I knew very little about it. I'd seen the trailer and so I roughly knew the plot. I've always liked Tommy Lee Jones and Ashley Judd is absolutely gorgeous so I figured this was a no-brainer to rent. It turned out to be a no-brainer in the sense that if you had one, you'd not like this flick. The opening sequence was nice and compelling and I was really starting to get into it. After a few scenes, though, it becomes one improbable scenario after another with wasted performances by Jones and Annabeth Gish. Mix in some questionable camera work and you get this fiasco. I realize the director must have thought the slow-mo sequences would have an effect (the effect on me was laughter), but in this ultra glossy prison sequence it just does not work. If you want a descend Ashley Judd movie, rent Kiss the Girls. For TLJ, get the Fugitive. As for Double Jeopardy, just leave it on the shelve.
