Desperately steering clear of anything resembling an original idea, this one mushes together stuff that worked considerably better in The Fugitive or any middle-aged woman wish-fulfillment movie produced by Lifetime. Just TRY to find a plot twist that is not directly given in the publicity.The Double Jeopardy rules of the universe are as follows:
If you see a bloody knife sitting in a pile of blood, immediately bend over and pick it up.
Some women's prisons are warm and cozy, with plenty of helpful new friends and former attorneys around to talk to.
If you're going to frame your wife for murder, you should always choose her best friend as your new lover to run away with.
By simply pretending to buy a car, a salesman will give you anyone's address in the world.
It's easy to attain an entire new wardrboe, simply by stealing from hotel lobbies.
It's easy to travel from Washington DC to Colorado to Louisiana without one interesting thing happening.
When trying to track down a fugitive, pure coincidence is by far the best method of capture.
New Orleans is comprised of four square blocks, thereby making it possible to track someone down simply by standing around.
The villain will always be smug and oozing with evil, which makes him completely stupid.
Tommy Lee Jones' role in this movie was completely comprised of outtakes from The Fugitive. (OK, maybe it just looked that way.)A menu of tired clichés, telegraphed performances and insipid plot machinations. Double Jeopardy gladly grabs on to ANY familiar cliche and milks it for all it's worth. The fact that this one made over $120 million is disturbing as hell, since every single sequence is directly stolen from better movies. Is this REALLY what people want to see in movies? Ouch.
