Michael Keaton was originally considered for Bill Murray's role in Groundhog Day (1993), which was also directed by Harold Ramis, and his love interest in that was Andie MacDowell, who also played his wife in this film. But he turned it down. See more »
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 »
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.
