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 Doug #2 can't handle the stress of overwork any better than the original. Perhaps Doug… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"More Kafkaesque than comedic, more fascinating to watch than out-and-out funny."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Sean Means, Film.com
"Try not to double or triple-up laughing. (published 7-19-96)"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"More is not better, in this case."
‑ Luanne Brown, Chico Enterprise-Record
"It could have been a good story, but it turns out to be thin, despite good acting performances by Keaton and MacDowell."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The comedy itself, however, is uneven and, more often than not, obvious."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Some sexy stuff in dated, but entertaining '80s comedy."
‑ Common Sense Media Editors, Common Sense Media
"It's a showcase for Keaton."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"Michael Keaton is very funny, but the comedy itself isn't worth his efforts."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"You expect better from director Harold Ramis, who made much more with much less in Groundhog Day."
‑ , E! Online
"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."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A desperately unfunny comedy lethargically directed by Harold Ramis, and boringly acted by Michael Keaton."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"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."
‑ Brandon Judell, Critics Inc./America Online
"Great premise, great work by Keaton, but the script lets them down."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Starts out with a great premise, but fails to deliver on its promise."
‑ Madeleine Williams, Cinematter
