Ditto Times Five
25 October 2000 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

While this is not as funny as some of Keaton's Educational shorts (gets a bit awkward in the middle), it does have some great moments. Mainly though, I see the entire first 16 minutes (of a 17-minute running time) as the build-up to a big punch-line at the end. But you must know a little about the Dionne quintets born in 1934 to get the joke!
