Critic Reviews for Multiplicity

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (18)

More Kafkaesque than comedic, more fascinating to watch than out-and-out funny.

Top Critic

I recommend this to anyone who wants to see a solipsistic comedy about the darker side of marriage.

January 1, 2000
Top Critic

The comedy itself, however, is uneven and, more often than not, obvious.

Top Critic

Multiplicity cheats itself by not letting its imagination run as wild as its star.

USA Today
Top Critic

Director Harold Ramis had more serious ambitions. Multiplicity should have been another Groundhog Day, which Ramis also directed, but he comes up short.

Top Critic

Ramis and his quartet of writers, including City Slickers shtick factories of Lowell Ganz & Babaloo Mandel, can't find much to do with their simple premise.

Audience Reviews for Multiplicity

A goofy comedy, and it does go off the old saying 'if only there were more of me'. The story is predictable, especially the ending. Overall it has some humor, but overall it's just okay.

I secretly like this movie.

Curtis Lilly

Super Reviewer

Funny movie about a man who duplicates himself for his busy life.
