Multiplicity and Primal Fear
A Movie/DVD Review
What do you do when the girl you've had a thing for since
college calls you up and says "My husband is out of town and me
and Ms. Kitty are coming over at nine with a pizza"? If you're
me you call up your buddy Wheeze, tell him to get out of work early,
get two bottles of wine, and pick up a couple of videos. Such was
the case for me recently. What luck!!! So what happened? We'll talk
about that later. For now I want to tell you about the movies we
watched that evening.
What do you do when you work for an overly demanding asshole,
your wife wants to work, and you have two kids not old enough to
take care of themselves. If your lucky, like Michael Keaton, you
bump into a genetic scientist who offers to clone you. Think about
it. How much could you get done if there were two of you? You'd jump
at the opportunity too (I know I would, but would woman kind be able
to handle two of me?). Now that Mike has his clone who has taken on
a work-a-holic and sexist pig attitude, he decides to go out and
enjoy life and do all those things in life you never got the chance
to do. Things like going sailing or playing golf. The only problem
is that while the original Mike is out having fun clone #1 has too
much to do at work and no time for the family. No problem, just make
another clone. Thus #2, with more feminine qualities, is born.
Things should be great with three people trying to get the job done,
right? Wrong, There's still too much to be done so #1 and #2 decide
to get their own clone to help out. The only problem is that #3 is a
copy of a copy. If you've ever made a copy of a copy on the ol' copy
at work, you'll know it ain't too sharp. Well, neither is #3.
Imagine - There are four of the same person living in the same
household. How do you keep that a secret from your wife, neighbors,
and boss? There in lies most of the jokes in this movie. That and
the fact that each clone seems to have distinctive and sometimes
conflicting personalities. This movie is not all about comedy, it
also tries to teach us the lesson of "the grass isn't always
greener on the other side."
"Multiplicity" stars Michael Keaton and Andi McDowel,
was written and directed by Harold Ramis, and is rated PG-13. I
liked this movie. It was a good date flick. I give "Multiplicty"
four out of five stars.
A bishop is brutally murdered; An alter boy flees the scene
covered in blood; He is pursued by the police as a news helicopter
broadcasts the action live; The alter boy is accused of the murder.
So, is he innocent? I'd think not, but attorney Martin Vail (played
by the alleged gerbil abuser Richard Gere) thinks he is. So how does
one prove the innocence of the accused when the evidence seems so
obvious (ask Johnny Cochran).
Sound like a great beginning to a great movie, right? The people
I watched it with thought it was OK, but for me... This movie was
one of the most predictable movies I've ever seen. Seriously, this
movie was nothing but a "Hollywood paint by the numbers re-hash
of old shit." I usually don't like to give too much away or
spoil the endings of movies, but... The kid did it because he was
sexually abused by the bishop, Vail got the kid off and in a mental
institution because the kid had a split personality, which, at the
very end, you find out he faked. End of story.
I thought "Primal Fear" was a waste of $3 and 2:06
minutes. I don't recommend this R rated movie., but my friends
seemed to think it was OK and there was a titty scene so I'll give
it two out of five stars.
So much for luck...
So how did the night end? The pizza was great, the wine did its
job, Wheeze disappeared with Miss Kitty, and I got to hear about all
my friends emotional problems. Not exactly what I had in mind. Oh
well, so much for luck ...
