However, he is approached by geneticist Dr. Owen Leeds who offers him a rather unusual solution to his problems - cloning.Written by

Digital cloning of the same person in a scene was still off by several years when this movie was made. Therefore scenes where each of Michael Keaton's characters were interacting with one another were filmed separately (with the exact same camera movements) and layered over one another. See more »

I think this was a good film with a good concept and adequate execution. Michael Keaton is a workaholic who doesn't have any time for his family, so he goes to a scientist who clones him so he can have the best of both worlds. Complications ensue, however, and Keaton finds that things are going as expected, so he proceeds to make more duplicates, which of course leads to further complications. I loved the part where the duplicates make one of themselves, whom the original Keaton refers to as "Rain Man." The bedroom, home, and work scenes are all hilarious, and the movie also has a good cast. If you want to see a good comedy, I recommend this one. You won't be disappointed.
