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

A desperately unfunny comedy lethargically directed by Harold Ramis, and boringly acted by Michael Keaton.
| Original Score: 1/5

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.

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

Simply a laugh-out-loud comedy about clones running around, and the mayhem which ensues.

Although Multiplicity is funny, it's not as heartwarming or inventive as Groundhog Day.

Multiplicity exists because it's now possible for an actor to appear on screen with himself and not by means of anything so quaint as double exposure.

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.

Keaton does a dandy job by his four Dougs, but the problem is a script that assumes a physical comedian can do it all, including twisting characters to make them fit the plot line. It doesn't work.

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.

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

A showcase tailor-made for Keaton and his maniacally comedic persona(e).

A buoyant domestic farce.

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