Double Jeopardy: Friday, September 24, 1999

Framed for the murder of her husband, Libby Parsons (Ashley Judd) survives the long years in prison with two burning desires sustaining her – finding her son and solving the mystery that destroyed her once-happy life. Standing between her and her quest, however, is her parole officer, Travis Lehman (Tommy Lee Jones). Libby poses a challenge to the cynical officer, one that forces him to face up to his own failings while pitting him against his superiors and law enforcement colleagues. -- 1999 Paramount Pictures

 The People's Review of Double Jeopardy

Niki
score = 100
comments = This movie was extremely full of action and really exciting to see.  Ashley Judd is an excellent actress and she was great in this movie.  The whole thing is just great.

I usually don't go for these sort of films (action) but this one suprised me. I was glued to the tele!! The acting of ashley judd was the only thing that really let the movie down.But apart from that it's worth while seeing if you have nothing better to do.

score = 90 
yes,much of it was predictable and somewhat irratonal , but the simple fact is that it keeps you glued to your seat--ashley judd and tommy lee jones are awesome--this movie succeeds in one very important thing--IT ENTERTAINS YOU FROM START TO FINISH--and as with most tommy lee jones movies,it has a ton of laughs thrown in,just to throw you off a bit--go see it if you have not yet--it may not be another REAR WINDOW ,but its damn good -i rate it a 90,but easily could go higher

I THINK THE MOVIE DOUBLE JEOPARDY WAS EXCELLENT. IT WAS A LITTLE SCARRY AT FIRST WHEN I SAW ALL THE BLOOD ON THE SHIP, BUT I REALLY LIKED IT. I THINK YOU SHOULD MAKE ANOTHER MOVIE OF DOUBLE JEOPARDY. THAT IS HOW GOOD IT WAS.I LOVE ASHLEY JUDD.BUT THAT GUY NICK, I CAN,T UNDERSTAND WHY HE DID THAT TO HIS WIFE. I THOUGHT HE LOVED HER. IN THE MOVIE NICK WAS A REAL JERK. BUT THE ACTOR BRUCE GREENWOOD, I THOUGHT HE WAS A GREAT ACTOR. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE HIM COME BACK FROM THE DEAD IN ANOTHER MOVIE. PLEASE EMAIL

This movie is totally implausible and insults the viewer's intelligence.  Ashley Judd is an attractive leading lady, but the scriptwriter should be shot for poor craftmanship.   Do not waste your time going to the theatre.  Double Jeopardy is strictly a weak video type film to rent when you can't think of something better.

score = 30
This movie had an inane premise and no interesting plot twists.  You know what is going to happen and then it does.  Don't bother.

score = 40
This movie is incredibly stupid. However, depending on your mood and the rowdiness of the theater, there are unintentional laughs. Basically, as a bad movie, it's rather fun.   It's not at all on par with classic bad movies like "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" or "Valley of the Dolls." I guess it's about equal in stupidity to "Air Force One;"however "Air Force One" was a definitely more fun. You can have fun with this one; but it maybe it helps to have a few drinks first.<G>

Double Jeopardy is the best movie that I have seen in a very long time.  It suspenceful, loaded with action, and has some comedy thrown in. It has all the qualities that I like to see in a movie.  I give it a 100.  Double Jeopardy definitely worth seeing.

A must see! You won't want to leave the theatre under any circumstances! Suspensefull, moving, great acting, a unbelievable story told in a believable way. A new favorite of mine.

I loved this movie it is one of the best movies i have seen. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Patty
score = 100
About time we had a movie that shows what worthless creeps men really are.  Like Ashley, I had a husband whom I thought was a great guy, and he turned out to be a real turkey.  I just wish I had had a legal excuse to kill the sob, like she did.   Maybe next time!  Best movie I've seen in years.

Misha
score = 90
Well written, directed and acted, entertaining, great cinematography. A few mild plot glitches that do not impact the overall quality of the film. No sex, witches, explosions...so overall, probably not John and Jane Q. Public's favorite type of movie.

Great movie, Ashley Judd was wonderful.  I would go back and see it again.

Nothing too exiting. Nothing in the plot that catches you off guard. Decent story and will hold your attention, but thats about it.

score = 10
All of you who give this a high score must have IQs of the same numbers...90, 100etc.! This is a movie that had a good plot but what was done with this plot was a tragedy, for those of us who wasted our money. This is a senseless movie, it's obvious, to anyone with half a brain,  within the first 5 min. what is going to happen & the ending is just as obvious. What is in between makes no sense. You can make a list as long as your arm of all the inconsistensies & totally senseless things about this movie. Don't waste your money!

I thought the movie was good.  Good story, great actors, and I really liked that 1969 Ford pick up.

I think it was an excellant movie. Despite it's some "unbelievable" scenes, I really enjoyed it. I think the acting was great! I rate the movie as an 85 actually, it made me cry and laugh. And I guess the whole concept..the storyline rather was very good! I look mostly at the story to it..not so much the little details such as her getting on the plane with the gun, ect. It's as said by our world's authors.."in a story..you've got to stick to the idea of it. The plot. Don't dwell on the punctuation mistakes." So I really enjoyed it.

This is a very good picture. Not to often you are able to see a picture that pays a lot attention to detail. The cinematograpy is excellent. Peter James did a fantastic job and the direction is as good as Driving Miss Daisey. A good movie no flaws Enjoy DB

It's an ok movie, but 10 minutes into the movie I already knew what was going to happen.

Great movie I thought it was really interesting it kept it all times at the screen. I do reccommend it that you go see it great actors.

This movie was utterly horrendous- I'm not sure if it was the prevues fault or if it was just a bad film but it was way to predictable -  I've seen more suspenseful Scooby doo episodes....

I just watched this movie in our local cinema in Suva, Fiji Islands and tell you, it's been a long while since I saw a movie full of love, hate, suspense, thriller and action. Ashley Judd is perfect for hollywood and why not? She gets to co-star with my favourite actor - Tommy Lee Jones. Thanks,

If you have got yourselves a pet budgie, or even own your very own sand-pit, then you can't go far wrong with putting this pancake between your knees. BOOYAKASHA!

Note out all of us already know what's going to happen next(aren't we all genius)but that's not all the movie is about. See...this is where the men get offended, husbands are to love their wife as they love themselves but we hardly get one these days! It's just a movie..and Ashley Judd is a great star..I thinks it's worth watching!

I liked the movie. The part when she was in the library was probally what i liked most about it. When She was tring to get the hand cuffs off of the car and she and T.L.J. went into the water was the greatest. I liked the movie, its worth while and i thought it had a great story to it.

I really liked this movie.  I think that Ashley Judd shines and makes you beleive the hardships that she has encountered.  Although this was not one of Tommy Lee Jones' best performances or roles, the combination of plot and acting makes this movie a "Worth Seeing"
