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 »
reluctant 7, Reluctant because "Double Jeapardy's" plot is so manipulative that it makes the whole project suspect-- wending its way at its own convenience, and at the expense of the characters (esp. their intelligence) and the nerves of the audience. That said, the worst moments of the movie are those early exchanges between the mother and son--I know these folks are yuppies but c'mon. The best moment is the "jeopardy" exchange in the woman's prison between Judd and the ex-lawyer prisoner. The redeeming things are Judd's athletic performance, her evil husband's very effective acting, the parole officer role (reminded me of similar pursuer in "Thelma & Louise") New Orleans itself, the New Orleans bar tender, and that the movie, from a sensibility vantage point, is pretty damn good for a thriller with too many chase scenes. That human moments can emerge at all here is amazing, but they do--right up to the end.
