Starring: Ashley Judd, Tommy Lee Jones, Bruce Greenwood, Annabeth Gish, Roma Maffia, Jay Brazeau, Michael Gaston, Daniel Lapaine, Dave Hager

While going along for the ride to find out who will win Jeopardy is one of the greatest game show mysteries, a certain throwback crime thriller shares a title with the game show but goes above and beyond with the mystery. Double Jeopardy will take you all the way back to the pre-millennium days of exciting blockbusters that were in it for the thrill.

Ashley Judd stars in Double Jeopardy as Libby Parsons, a wife and mother who suddenly finds herself framed for the murder of her husband, Nick (Bruce Greenwood). Once she leaves prison, Libby is driven by the desire to reunite with her son and get to the bottom of the mystery that upended her previously perfect life, all while facing off with her parole officer (Tommy Lee Jones).

Double Jeopardy may not be one of the most popular blockbusters of all time, but the film was a box office hit at the time of its release, spending three weeks at No. 1 and bringing in over $177 million worldwide. If you’re looking for a nostalgic mystery film that will keep you on your toes for its entire wild ride, then you should add Double Jeopardy to your Netflix watch list while you can.
