I am into really stupid comedy s & this one was great for me.
The story and acting was funny. I did care for the man*Kate that much.. she needs a little adjusting (lol).. I would definitely recommend this to someone who is looking for a funny stupid comedy (as I call them)

FUNNY FROM BEGINNING TO END
Chris Kennison | Jefferson City, Mo United States | 01/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I normally would withhold a 5 star rating for a classic like REAR WINDOW or BRAVEHEART... something of that calibur. But, for what REPLIKATE is.... it deserves 5 stars. And what it is, is a movie that didn't get a sliver of recognition, a sliver of publicity and holds more bust out laughs than any movie of recent that I can remember. I gathered my brothers and sister around the other day and told them that they had to see this movie that nobody had heard about. I had already watched it 4 times and was prepared to watch it again. My sister was ready to go home, but instead we all gathered around and laughed our butts off.Contemporary comedies are all trying to capture the laughs that movies like CADDYSHACK, AIRPLANE and BLAZING SADDLES received, but most of them fail because of one reason: they're afraid to offend anybody. By the time movies hit the screen, the EXECS have cut out all the funny stuff in order to be politically correct and not hurt people's feelings. Well, in a way, that's why REPLIKATE works so well. Because nobody cared about it, and it went straight to video, THEY ACTUALLY LEFT THE FUNNY STUFF IN!The movie is a cross between AMERICAN PIE, REAL GENIUS and WEIRD SCIENCE, and funnier then all three. Lots of gender and sex jokes. The best way to describe it is to say that it feels like a movie made by the writers of MAXIM or STUFF magazine. Believe me, if you can find a copy of it, watch it, you won't be disappointed.Also, and the most important point to make is that I never really had an opinion about Ali Landry before REPLIKATE, but after watching it, I think she's a hoot. On the surface, this girl is BEAUTIFUL, but underneath, she's good. Really good. She had to have a lot of charm and charisma to pull this off and she was overflowing with it. You'll fall in love with her... both of her.It's unfortunate that a lot of people aren't going to see this gem of a comedy and miss the performance that she gives, but I think and hope that ALI LANDRY has a long career, and someday does something big.By the end of the movie, you'll be saying "I WANT ONE". HA HA"
VERY guilty pleasure

"Originally shot for theatrical release, then shunted directly to video (and that in the clearance bins), "Repli-Kate" is a surprisingly entertaining movie. Taken on its own terms (essentially a very vulgar "Weird Science" meets Maxim magazine, it's not for the easily offended), it's occasionally laugh-out-loud hilarious.Its 1980s-style drawbacks can be severe. For example, the monumentally bad ending illustrates that jokes without storytelling results in an aimless "Gotta wrap this thing up" feeling. But I've seen worse make it to theaters and into the $100 million club. They may as well have given this a chance.In a pleasant case of violated expectations, relative newcomer Ali Landry is the funniest person in the movie. She's not only stunningly beautiful head to toe (Hormone check: Lots of skimpy lingerie but no real nudity) but also a sharper, more natural actress than other models. She is relaxed and gets the jokes."
Trust a French guy if you can

"Well, listen to this. I am 37 and I am a French guy living in France. I first saw this movie on sale today in a French supermarket. the theme of the movie caught my eyes but i thought this is probably a very bad movie. It just looks good but there is nothing behind it. I went to Amazon to check the critics and they were excellent but only 6 of them. The movie is practically unknown to the public. Then I decided "let's go for it" and I returned to buy it along with a pizza and a pack of beer. Let me tell you that there is no need to sip the beers to enjoy this movie. I have seen so many movies those last 20 years and You can trust me if I tell you that this is a great comedy! it doesn't even look in any way as a cheap movie. Just is a great one. I just don't understand why it didn't came out on the big screens!
I was afraid the actors would have a goofy and unbelievable way of acting as it is often the case in cheap comedies but they are believable and you can go buy it right away."
