Duplicate But Not Equal

Thought Mike Judge's Extract (2009) was certainly watchable and mostly entertaining but also a little aimless in nailing its purpose. All the actors did a fine job (yet another '09 role for Clifton Collins Jr) with the exception of Kristen Wiig who was easily underutilized. Overall wish the flick was better on the execution side.

Another so-so 2009 film that falls from its weight is Duplicity. Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are attractive together but the corporate espionage storyline never really packs the necessary punch despite some fun moments from Tom Wilkinson.
