Starlog Archives: Multiplicity
Effects-driven comedies are hard to pull off. Few know this better than Harold Ramis. Ramis is best known for having played Egon in the original Ghostbusters which he also cowrote. But he also directed Chevy Chase in Vacation, Bill Murray in Groundhog Day and both of them in Caddyshack. Multiplicity, which starred Michael Keaton playing a regular guy who clones himself, seemed like the kind of high profile comedy that could repeat the success of some of Ramis’ earlier movies. But it just never caught on. In the August 1996 issue of Starlog, Ramis discussed his latest movie.
