Product Description:

In this highly original comedy, an overworked family man (Michael Keaton) who doesn't have time to do everything he'd like finds a creative solution--he clones himself. Not just once, however--he winds up with four slightly different versions, counting the original. Of course, all is not as easy as it seems, and the clones quickly become a handful for the already stressed-out original.

Plot Synopsis:

In this highly imaginative comedy, Michael Keaton stars as Doug Kinney, an overworked family man who is in desperate need of a vacation. When pressures mount at a job site, he is noticed by a slightly deranged scientist who offers him an intriguing solution to his problems: cloning. Doug agrees and finds himself with an exact replica to do all of his dirty work at the office. But there's just one problem: There's no one to help out at home, which leads to the arrival of Doug number three, a domestic whirlwind who can solve any household problem. But things are not as simple as they seem, and the clones soon begin to act out the extremes in the original Doug's personality. Clone number one becomes a macho workaholic, while clone number two becomes downright feminine. Real trouble ensues when a third clone is created by the duplicates, who is a copy of a copy, having lost some of his smarts in the duplication. Andie MacDowell stars as Doug's wife, who is suddenly faced with her husband's seemingly erratic behavior, while the original Doug scrambles to hide the truth about his little experiment from his wife, friends, and coworkers. Ironically, Doug's life becomes more complicated than ever, proving that four Dougs aren't necessarily better than one. Director Harold Ramis handles all the fun with the multiple Dougs hysterically, and Michael Keaton gives a terrific performance as a man just trying to cope with today's myriad problems.
