...but you're upside down, sister. I own you. Ray Koval

It's bubbly, sweet and makes you light-headed.

If you liked the classic Charade with Audrey Hepburn and Gary Grant (who wouldn't!), you'll like Duplicity.

Be sure to chill your favorite champagne while watching the DVD. Available on Tuesday 8/25.

Closer co-stars Julia Roberts and Clive Owen reunite for Oscar-nominated director Tony Gilroy's drama tracing the illicit love affair between two spies-turned-corporate operatives. The Cold War has thawed, and for CIA agents seeking to make an easy mint, the real money is in multinational corporations. CIA officer Claire Stenwick (Roberts) and Ray Koval (Owen) are both racing to secure the formula for a product that will bring untold wealth to the company that lands the patent first as the stakes begin to rise, and their passions start to flare. Meanwhile, their mutual employers, industry giant Howerd Tully (Tom Wilkinson) and trailblazing CEO Dick Garsil (Paul Giamatti) start resorting to some seriously underhanded tactics in hope of gaining an advantage over the competition. Loners by definition of their own careers, Claire and Ray engage in a series of schemes and double-crosses while contending with the fact that their mutual attraction could ultimately jeopardize their entire missions.

  1. Oh snap -- the wardrobe sketch is a great find. They are so lovely together and it's nice to see them having more fun than they did in Closer, even tho it was a great movie. Clive Owen, glasses of champagne AND snappy catch phrases to boot? I must see this movie, so that I can start running around town saying, "I OWN you!"
