Movies Multiplicity (1996, Michael Keaton, Andie MacDowell) Published 6 months ago on November 14, 2018 ‘There are four excellent reasons to see Multiplicity , and they’re all named Michael Keaton’ Variety wrote about this cloning comedy by Groundhog Day director Harold Ramis. Empire, meanwhile, simply called it ‘assuredly funny without being forced and smart without being smug’ and it’s undoubtedly a tour de force performance by Keaton, who turned down Batman Forever to do the movie. Ramis notes that when the film was being shot, Keaton was constantly upstaging himself, with the director at one point telling the actor, ‘If another actor did to you what you just did to yourself, you’d kill him!’ Keaton’s Californian construction engineer Doug Kinney is a man under stress. Struggling to cope with his burgeoning workload and under pressure from wife Laura (Andie MacDowell) to spend more time with their two children, he’s presented with a possible solution by a geneticist, Dr Owen Leeds (Harris Yulin), at the Gemini Institute where Doug’s doing some work. Having seen positive proof of Leeds’ ability to clone himself, Doug nervously agrees to have himself cloned. At first things seem to be working well. The cloned Doug gets stuck into the backlog of work at the office, leaving Doug himself free to relax at home. Soon, though, the housework and the kids become too much and Doug goes back to the institute to get a second clone made. It’s when the clones themselves decide to add a third clone that things really get complicated. All this time, Doug’s wife Laura is oblivious to Doug’s decision to send in the clones – even though she’s slept with all four of them! This is when the real Doug decides that enough is enough and some serious action needs to be taken. production details USA | 117 minutes | 1996 Director: Harold Ramis Script: Lowell Ganz, Mary Hale, Chris Miller, Babaloo Mandel, cast Michael Keaton as Doug Kinney Andie MacDowell as Laura Kinney Harris Yulin as Leeds Eugene Levy as Vic Zack Duhame as Zack Kinney Katie Schlossberg as Jennifer Kinney Richard Masur as Del King Ann Cusack as Noreen John de Lancie as Ted Judith Kahan as Franny Brian Doyle-Murray as Walt Obba Babatundé as Paul Julie Bowen as Robin Dawn Maxey as Beth Kari Coleman as Patti Steven Kampmann as Coach Jack Michael Milhoan as Irate Football Parent Skip Stellrecht as Irate Football Parent Jim Piddock as Maitre d’ Robin Duke as Ballet School Receptionist Suzanne Herrington as Den Mother Robert Ridgely as Laura’s Father Glenn Shadix as Building Inspector Dennis R.
