Trivia

According to director Harold Ramis, he wrote much of the script uncredited. A Writers Guild rule prevents directors from getting a writing credit on their film unless they contribute more than 50 percent. Ramis contributed 40 percent of the screenplay. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scenes, Doug and his wife repeatedly discuss whether or not he bought a "hot water heater". The correct term is simply water heater; hot water doesn't need to be heated. See more »

Quotes

Ted: Hey Kinney, I know you think you're hot shit. I'm not falling for this whole go-go attitude. I see through you, my friend.

underrated
23 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie thrice and each time it still amuses me. Michael Keaton playing three clones plus the original was really intriguing and he plays it so well. I was really disappointed to see that th overall rating is currently in the 5 area and even more when I found out Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs down. I like this movie. I find it funny, especially Michael Keatons portrayal as a feminine Doug and a "special" Doug, who really gives the movie most of its comedy. I give you that it was predictable but I really don't care. If it makes you crack up, it is a good movie, and this is no exception.

Andie McDowell does a fine job too. She might not be talking to three of herself as Keaton was but she was a good opposite to him. THe scenes with the kids are true to life, which also make me laugh.

I overall enjoy this film every time I see it and find myself quoting it the next few days. If your looking for a good laugh, this will feed your appetite.
