Still, it's a lot more enjoyable than most of the mainstream stuff that Hollywood is trying to pass off as entertainment these days.

It was a very entertaining piece that was content on not taking itself to seriously.

But the rest of the movie was complete and utter boredom.

The result is very irregular, and there are parts enjoyable, other that could be skipped, other not resolved.

Tarantino's movies can be immensely enjoyable because you know while you're watching them that you're seeing originals.

Barely entertaining...

This is one of those kind of movies that has no plot and is filled with watchers saying "Hey, it's that guy!

That said, I did find it surprisingly enjoyable, especially after reading so many negative reviews.

It also contains a few rather pointless sub-plots never explored, the biggest one consists of two guys trying to write a movie (maybe experiences of the script-writer?

worth watching .

Pure garbage don't waste your time .

Anyway, it's a waste of time.

Don't waste your time play hearts instead.

All in all, an enjoyable movie.

DOUBLE WHAMMY carries with it an eclectic, comical story -which may understandable be passed off as pretentious - that for clarity's sake is much easier unexplained.

In the end, this is an uninteresting movie with shallow characters.

Now it is just lost and pointless.

his suspicions about the daughter's involvement), as opposed to having Leary the "good guy" detective be the one with all the right answers, is just one example of how DiCillo avoids stereotypes thereby eliminating a crucial factor that causes boredom in movies.

Boring, all-over-the-place script, poor performance from Leary .

A total waste of time!!

Well-done; entertaining film .

Not the highlight of cinema, and barely amusing(the few good comments come from the underused Buscemi), but fairly enjoyable.

They're always up for either fun and silly (The Ref, Suicide Kings), the kind of movie to make you nauseous (Two if by sea, Operation Dumbo Drop), or completely unexpected (Final).

There are a couple funny moments, but the movie dragged on and eventually went nowhere.

I can't say I care much for the title, but the movie does make for a pretty entertaining 90 minutes.

The movie is mildly entertaining.

Once it was all said and done, I had gotten pretty much what I had expected: An offbeat comedy with quirky characters and some unexpected touches of heart.

Two-bit writing and one of the most cliche-ridden movies I've ever seen.

In this film, albeit's not being "The Maltese Falcon" or "Basic Instinct," and Leary not yet another Bogart or Michael Douglas, it still is well-cast, well-acted, and provides a competent mix of humor, action, romance, some surprises/plot twists, and drama, to provide an enjoyable hour-and-a-half spent, and rates a solid 8* (possibly even higher).
