Michael Keaton's performance in the hilarious film "Multiplicity" is outstanding. Keaton is a "too busy to do anything else but work" contractor who becomes a test subject for a scientist's human cloning project. The clones turn out to be a big help and a big headache. The clones emphasize different parts of Keaton's psyche and the resulting interplay of their/his personalities makes this film enjoyable and funny. Keaton is able to play four different roles in the same film with ease.

Guaranteed to be a good laugh and sure to be a classic.

I really enjoyed this movie when it came out in theaters in 1996 and was looking forward to watching it again on DVD. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that this is a poor pan-and-scan, full screen only, transfer of this film.
Amazon's product description and Editorial Review offer a confusing and misleading description of the product. The Editorial Review by Tom Keogh states that the "DVD release includes optional widescreen and standard formats..." Amazon's own Product Details for Format lists the DVD as "Anamorphic, Closed-captioned, Color, DVD, Full Screen, Subtitled, Widescreen, NTSC". Apparently, the only actual accurate description is limited to the Aspect Ratio that lists 1.33:1!
I'm not sure why in this age of widescreen HDTV and home theater a studio would release a feature film in full screen, let alone full screen only! And based on the descriptions previously referenced it may have been released in both formats earlier. This seems to be a foolish decision by someone at the studio to drop the widescreen format as opposed to the full screen one. The viewer misses out on scenes in which multiple clones appear together and some of them get clipped out of frame. What movie buff wants to see dialog taking place between halves of two faces when the cropped screen is unable to accommodate both actors (or both copies of the actor as is the case in this movie).
Amazon, correct your product description and drop the price on this less-than-complete DVD!

This is a hysterical movie. Tons of laughter and a funny storyline. I use several quotes from the movie and most people will be able to name this movie. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who needs a good laugh.

This is a laugh out loud comedy even if a few elements are in questionable taste. Michael Keaton is hilarious playing an overworked suburban LA man and his three clones. The first clone (Doug 2) created so the Keaton character (Doug) can have more time at home with his wife and kids is a rugged workaholic. Clone #3 is made to be a more sensitive house husband type of guy when the original Doug becomes overwhelmed with all the home time and decides what he really needs is more leisure time for himself. And the fourth clone, well, he's made from Doug 2 and as my review title quotes the film "a copy made from a copy is never quite as sharp". Obviously complications arise many having to do with Laura, Doug's lovely wife, played by Andie MacDowell, who remains oblivious to the fact that she actually has four husbands for awhile. Keaton is remarkable in giving all four of the Dougs distinct personalities and seems to be even able to change his physical characteristics as he plays the different roles. The movie ends rather implausibly but of course it is all just for fun nonsense anyway. One more thing - er I don't think the "science" behind the cloning is real well researched so don't watch this hoping to get a better grade on your genetics test!

Well, the first time I saw this movie was last year in 8th grade Science Class. I thought "Great, something in school, it's gonna suck", well, I was wrong. The story is mainly about a man who works way too much, and he wants some free time, so he can have some time to himself and his family. His work is effected, and his over all attitude. Until, one day he's working on a job site when Keaton comes across a scientist. This scientist tells him about cloning, and all the glory. Then Keaton starts to believe it is a bunch of BS, when the real scientist comes back from a game of golf. In a few short minutes #2 is born, except his genes are spliced so he becomes a workaholic. Now that Keaton has extra time on his hands, he decides to help out at home, when he creates #3, which is spliced with a habit of house cleaning (lots of laughs). Eventually, the two clones move into the garage, where trouble starts because Keaton's wife is actually talking, dating, and sleeping with the clones. At a time, Keaton walks in to shut the clones up because they are having a party, when he meets #4, the mental case. He is a clone of a clone, so he isn't, well, as intulectual as the others. Along the road, a small love story unfolds, as well as a commedy.
During this movie, the viewer (you) would have many aspects, and most would find it extremely funny. This is far more hillarious than most commedies out today, if you want a good laugh, Multiplicity is the movie for you. I rate it a 5 star movie!

What a hilarious movie! I've loved this movie ever since the first time I saw it, and it still hasn't gotten old. I find myself laughing more with every viewing! It's funny, clever, and has more substance than most comedies. Michael Keaton does an amazing job in this movie, and plays all four Dougs so well that you always know which Doug it is, without causing any confusion at all. Doug #2 is probably my favorite of them all. I watched this movie recently on TV and had to order this DVD off amazon! I highly recommend all of you comedy lovers out there do the same!
