Multiplicity (1996)



Reviews and Comments

This comedy from director Harold Ramis recalls an earlier effort, Groundhog Day. Again, a rather simple yet creative idea drives a film that squeezes every last laugh out of it. Michael Keaton finds himself horribly pressed for time, so he clones himself to divide the labor. When he finds he's still overwhelmed, the situation falls rapidly out of hand. Andie MacDowell (again) stars as a love interest (his wife, actually) unaware of the strange phenomenon occurring. It's tame compared to Groundhog Day, but still funny and never boring. See it widescreen if at all possible; the pan-n-scan version is particularly nightmarish.
