REPLI-KATE is a funny film with many humorous moments (I thought the scene where Max took the new “Kate” to the department store to buy a “shitload of bras” was well-written and clever), but overall there was just something missing. I couldn't put my finger on it, but REPLI-KATE just doesn’t have that certain mysterious spark to it to make it into a genuinely funny comedy. Which sucks, because I wanted to like this film more than I did.
Not the greatest cloning comedy of all time, honestly it's only a 5 out of 10 film, but still worth checking out if you enjoy lesser-known comedies. Steady pace, weak direction, zero nudity (unless you count a lame two-second shot from like 50 feet away), good acting (especially by Landry in a dual role), early 2000’s fashions, a different Eugene Levy film (BEST IN SHOW) being advertised on a movie marquee, predictable script, mildly satisfying ending.
Would make a completely stupid and baffling double-feature with CONGO.
