I watched this movie because I had seen the bar-room scene on YouTube. It was all about Ali Landry. Forget the science that supplies the basic premise for the film, it is all hokey (though the book Landry is reading when we first meet her is a currently important text), but if you go along with the impossible premise of the story, it raises some questions that my wife and I enjoyed talking about. I wondered if some of the guys in our society would understand that this film is about them, but they don't get it, just as Landry - thinking like a man - does not get it. The film is full of stereotypes, but they are all fairly enjoyable, and together they make something that is greater than the sum of the parts. But above all - it is Landry who shines as she plays two different roles to the hilt.

Loading video, please wait...
A teenage scientist/lab technician named Max Fleming has just met the woman of his dreams -- beautiful, smart and sexy magazine reporter Kate Carson, who is trying to gain some scientific information from Max for an article she's working on about the lab where Max works. Unfortunately, a science geek like Max isn't Kate's type. One day, during an experiment, Max accidentally clones Kate. With the help of his buddy, Henry, Max takes advantage of the situation and transforms his Repli-Kate into a more mature and masculine-centered type of person -- a perfect mate. But when Max's maniacal boss, Dr. Jonas, has the real Kate return to finish her story on the genetic lab, Max is thrilled. Soon, Max realizes that the real Kate represents true perfection and love rather than the over-the-top Repli-Kate. Soon, the real Kate begins to fall for Max too, until she discovers Max's little secret.—Kevin

Ali Landry is gorgeous
This is a really dumb movie. But it's also a really FUNNY movie. The science is questionable, the plot is predictable and the acting hardly the stuff of Oscars. But the movie is a HOOT. Funny funny funny, with pretty girls and bawdy humour.
In "Repli-Kate", a college microbiologist clones a beautiful woman, takes her home, and teaches her to be the stereotypical male's ideal: A woman who is a slob, chugs brewskis, burps, curses, gobbles pizza like a pig, wants sex all the time, etc. A surprisingly enjoyable but unsophisticated little comedy romp with babe-alicious Landry as both the clone and the clonee, "Repli-Kate" will likely appeal most to the college crowd.
