Movie Info

In this zany comedy, Michael Keaton is Doug Kinney, a man with too many tasks and not enough time to complete them. When he feels too much pressure, his temper explodes with disastrous results. So when researcher Dr. Owen Leeds (Harris Yulin) offers him a somewhat unusual remedy for his problem, he gives it a try. Soon, a fully grown clone of Doug is delivered, complete with his memories up to the time of its "birth." Being in two places at once offers some advantages, but problems arise when

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

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

Groundhog Day had a certain sweetness and even a sly philosophical depth, but Multiplicity is more of a ground-level comedy, in which we can usually anticipate the problems for Doug and his clones.

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.

Some sexy stuff in dated, but entertaining '80s comedy.

A desperately unfunny comedy lethargically directed by Harold Ramis, and boringly acted by Michael Keaton.

Try not to double or triple-up laughing. (published 7-19-96)

It's a showcase for Keaton.

Whatever you know about cloning, leave at the theater door. Whatever you know about the modern housewife, shuck that, too. The feminism of "Multiplicity" is barely circa 1959.

More is not better, in this case.

Michael Keaton is very funny, but the comedy itself isn't worth his efforts.

Great premise, great work by Keaton, but the script lets them down.

It could have been a good story, but it turns out to be thin, despite good acting performances by Keaton and MacDowell.

You expect better from director Harold Ramis, who made much more with much less in Groundhog Day.

Starts out with a great premise, but fails to deliver on its promise.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: Cinematter

Ends up falling a bit flat on the screen.

Multiplicity ignores just about every question that would naturally come to the movie-goer's mind.

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.
