However as soon as they move into the house Connelly seems to make a miraculous recovery and as they settle down for the first night in their new house they are kept awake by Connelly's TV at full blast. Things don't get any better either as Alex tried to write a chapter of his book which is deadlined as Connelly asks for his help with some chores. Of course all this adds to some quite funny exchanges as things get too much for the couple and they begin to resort to more serious measures to do away with their neighbour from Hell.
Duplex is a paint by numbers comedy affair and whilst some jokes hit the spot, many are just unfunny or signposted and miss the mark. Devito does make sure the film is a sharp 89mins and there is good chemistry between the leads, but the humour and script could have been tightened a little further to improve things.
