 definitely deserves a much better film to house his four excellent performances in this silly What-If comedy. He plays an overworked contractor who can’t find enough time to juggle career and family, but when a doctor introduces him to the possibility of instant cloning he is all for it. Now there’s two of him running around, one to take care of each aspect of his life, and he just couldn’t be happier, but when the copy starts making copies of itself (creating degraded versions of the original in the process) things get a little hairy and his wife () starts to get suspicious, if not alarmed. Director Harold Ramis never quite manages to make the nonsensical plot soar.
