Double Take ★ 2001 (PG-13)

Businessman Daryl Chase (Jones) is framed as a money-launderer for a drug cartel and assumes the identity of street hustler Freddy (Griffin) in order to clear his name. Fans of “Mad TV” and “Malcolm and Eddie” (Jones and Griffin's TV ventures, respectively) will probably be sorely disappointed with this action-comedy attempt. While the two stars trade zingers and dodge gunfire, you're left to wonder why you didn't rent “Midnight Run,” or even “Beverly Hills Cop 3.” 88m/C VHS, DVD . US Orlando Jones, Eddie Griffin, Gary Grubbs, Daniel Roebuck, Sterling Macer, Garcelle Beauvais, Edward Herrmann, Benny Nieves, Shawn Elliott, Brent Briscoe, Carlos Carrasco; D: George Gallo; W: George Gallo; C: Theo van de Sande; M: Graeme Revell.
