Everything is OK in the Cart and on the PayPal site. However, when returned to the Review page - the Total prices are doubled. I tried looking at frontend/base/default/template/paypal/express/review/details.phtml but it seems fine - I don't see where it's doubling. Where can I find this? Here is a screenshot.

The problem is most likely that collectTotals is called within the theme somewhere. When helping someone else with this issue who was utilizing a third-party theme (Galabigshop), we found that our Grand Total was being tripled. Sure enough, we found the following code in the theme's sidebar twice:

if (!(Mage::app()->getRequest()->getControllerName()=='onepage') && !(Mage::app()->getRequest()->getControllerName()=='cart')) {
$quote = Mage::getModel('checkout/cart')->getQuote();

Without going into excessive detail, each time $quote->getShippingAddress()->collectTotals(); the total of the order is added again to the total.

The major problem with the code above is that the conditional does not account for the express controller (i.e. express), only onepage and cart. As a result, collect totals is run on the order review page (controller name express) and the total is erroneous.

To confirm that this is the issue, try utilizing the default magento theme, clearing your cache, and seeing if it resolves.
