It did not create infinite copies of him. What it did is bounce him all around the earth in time and space (different places) but there was only one of him. (suggest the contributor actually watch it)

A great satire!
24 August 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this on Public Television When I was 17 and really enjoyed it. Although the special effects were a bit hokey, the screenplay was well written and the production was wonderfully cast. I would love to have a copy of this in my video collection but short of that would at least like to see it again. If anyone out there has the rights to this they would do us a great service by re-releasing it.
