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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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