CADDYSHACK
1980, Warner Bros., 98 min, USA, Dir: Harold Ramis

Harold Ramis' directorial debut is a hilarious assault on the establishment. Michael O'Keefe plays a teenage caddy at a snooty country club, faced with a number of difficult choices as he heads into adulthood. Unfortunately for him, but fortunately for the audience, his father figures on the golf course are Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase, Ted Knight and Bill Murray.


MULTIPLICITY
1996, Sony Repertory, 117 min, USA, Dir: Harold Ramis

After being approached by a geneticist, construction worker Doug Kinney (Michael Keaton) seems to find a solution to his chaotically busy life - cloning! Keaton's usual hilarity only, well, multiplies as his person doubles and triples on screen. From director Harold Ramis, also known for brilliant comedy GROUNDHOG DAY, MULTIPLICITY deals with a different kind of terrifically funny repetition, and Keaton's performance is masterful in this underrated gem.


GROUNDHOG DAY
1993, Sony Pictures, 101 min, Dir: Harold Ramis

Self-absorbed weatherman Bill Murray is caught in a freakish time loop, doomed to repeat the same Groundhog Day over and over again until he gets things right. Director Harold Ramis concocts an existential comedy that is funny, intelligent and positively Punxsutawney. With Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliot.
