(out of 5)
Regional accents are the basis of humour in this awkward comedy, one whose premise wears out very quickly. Grigoris is a lazy goof from the village of Karditsa who has no idea that, years ago, his genes were the subject of a scientific cloning experiment. The success of this operation, a clone named Mike, lives in New York and travels to Greece to trade places with his doppelganger. This is the perfect way to throw Grigoris’ get-rich-quick scheme into hilarious disarray but, unfortunately, when direction, acting, writing and editing are this bad (not to mention seriously cheap-looking photography), the pleasure is nowhere to be found. Simply avoid it.
