Michael Keaton finds his time stretched to the limit between his wife, career and family, until he meets a scientist who offers to clone him, in this inventive comedy from director Harold Ramis. Of course, one clone ends up not being enough and soon he has an attic full of them - all played by Keaton and each with a different personality - while his unsuspecting wife (Andie MacDowell) wonders what on earth is going on. It's not as eye-wateringly funny as Ramis's Groundhog Day, but it is, nonetheless, a sprightly romp that benefits from superb, very funny multiple performances by Keaton.

Plot Summary

Fantasy comedy starring Michael Keaton and Andie MacDowell. Over-achieving architect Doug Kinney struggles to divide his time between work and the demands of his family. The answer seems to come when he meets a scientist who has developed a way of making "perfect" clones. Doug hopes to solve his problems by being in two places at once - but will he be able to stop at two?
