Product Description

Amazon.ca

An inevitable idea: a working man (Michael Keaton) who can't meet all his professional and family responsibilities has himself cloned. It works so well having one copy of himself to take charge of matters at the office that he makes another copy who takes care of the home front. Pretty soon, different aspects of Keaton's personality are emphasized in the different clones: the laborer becomes a macho creep and the domestic god becomes rather feminine. A third clone, struck from the duplicates instead of the original, becomes like a photocopy of a photocopy: inferior. This timely comedy should be better than it is, but special-effects requirements are so labor-intensive that most scenes feel stiff and leaden. Keaton is good in all four parts, and in certain gee-whiz effects scenes, where he even high-fives himself, he pulls off a minor miracle or two. (Of course, a kid did the same thing in Disney's 1998 remake of The Parent Trap.) The DVD release includes optional widescreen and standard formats and optional French and Spanish soundtracks. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Multiple Hilarity March 5 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I love this movie. It's absolutely hilarious- a great romantic comedy. Who hasn't wondered what it would be like to be able to be in two-or three- places at once? What starts off as a good idea quickly turns into a comedy of errors. Michael Keaton is brilliant in this offbeat comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars a pretty good movie,even after repeated viewings March 12 2007

i have watched this movie numerous times,and it seems that each time i watch it,the movie becomes less funny,more amusing.having said that,there are a few scenes which are still hysterical,time and time again.the acting is good,but the funniest person in the movie,in my mind,is Eugene Levy.though he has what amounts to a bit more than a cameo role,he is brilliant in his actions and reactions to situations in the movie.Michael Keaton is good in the lead role,and Andie MacDowell is also good,not to mention easy on the eyes.(if you're a guy)Harold Ramis('Ghostbusters' 1 and 2,'Groundhog Day')directed the film.if you like his other movies,chances are,you will like 'Multiplicity'.overall i would say this movie is better than average.for me,'Multiplicity gets 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Poses an interesting scenario March 25 2004
Format:DVD
This is definitely an original premise for a film, and the casting was dead on in selecting Michael Keaton, as he puts his comedic talent to excellent use in Multiplicity. The movie presents an interesting perspective of cloning and what may occur in its aftermath. Utter hilarity ensues as each clone displays unique personality traits - one is a tough armchair-quarterback type, another a male Martha Stewart, and the fourth - a copy of a copy - needs to be seen to be believed. The film was co-written and directed by Harold Ramis, and as far as comedy is concerned you can't go wrong with most of his work. The script holds together pretty well considering that it was a four person collaboration. My favorite scene was probably the one where Andie MacDowell is in the mood and encounters each of the clones - that scene is worth the price of admission. This movie deserved more of a push than it received - it's worth checking out if you are a fan of any of the participants.

5.0 out of 5 stars One times one is two. That's Multiplicity. Jan. 26 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Seeking simplicity causes complexity in the movie Multiplicity. An over-worked construction contractor's life gets even more hectic when his homemaker wife decides to return to the workplace. He seeks relief by delegating his work and domestic duties to clones. But, a new brand of chaos ensues when the natural order is disturbed. The life lesson taught in the movie is captured in one line, "About quality time with your family? It's all quality time." Michael Keaton is superb in his four diverse roles: the macho workaholic, the sensitive husband and father, the mental deficient, and the original Doug Kinney. This is a must see comedy worthy of every star.
