Julia Roberts's fans have always had a theory about Julia Roberts's movies. When her hair is red and long and curly, as it was in "Pretty Woman" and "My Best Friend's Wedding," she's at her most delicious. When her hair is short ("Conspiracy Theory," "Stepmom") she's playing someone serious, and the movie is seriously mediocre. When her hair is short and blonde and looks as though it were inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt ("Charlie Wilson's War"), get ready to hit the DVD eject button.
In "Duplicity," a new romantic spy thriller costarring Clive Owen, Roberts is poised to make her triumphant return after essentially taking five years off to raise her three children. No, the studio hasn't let us see "Duplicity" yet, but everything you need to know is on display in the trailer, starting with the curly red hair.
