Storyline

The governor of a Mexican state is assassinated. Soon after, junior executive Daryl Chase's life turns upside down: after he flags a huge transfer of funds from a Mexican account as probably illegal, he's attacked in his apartment, rescued by a CIA agent, finds his secretary shot dead, and witnesses two cops get killed. He calls the CIA guy who tells him to grab the next train to Mexico. Leaving Manhattan, Daryl can't shake a jive-talking street punk named Freddy, and soon he's traded clothes with Freddy to escape the police. Within days, his girlfriend, his boss, his client, Freddy, the FBI, and the dead governor's dog are tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Who's who? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Best One Liners in a Long Time
3 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

All right, I'll admit the movie itself lacked in certain places (such as extensive lag time in key areas), but I was on the floor crying with the great quips each lead character used. There is no doubt Griffin and Jones are wonderful comedic actors...Jones' performance in Replacements is proof positive of his talent. The problem most people have, though, is they can't see his ability clearly because of career moves he has taken. In Double Take, though, both Jones and Griffin shine in two different comedic styles, both jaw dropping funny and incredibly illustrated. I rented this movie solely to see Jones, and now I have a newfound respect for Griffin's ability, as well.
