Michael Keaton's character Doug is so busy with his work that the neglects his family. Then he meets a man who says he can help him with time.

This film started out a bit slow but got funnier and funnier as it went by. I never thought it would be this funny. It's also a very entertaining film where there is not too much time between each laugh. And the ending is absolutely hilarious!!
Andie MacDowell was stunning as usually. Keaton was good in all of his multiple roles! Need I say more? 7/10
