The 6th Day ★★ ½ 2000 (PG-13)

Arnold's a family guy in the near-future who finds out a clone has taken over his life. Not only that, but the evil corporation behind the clone doesn't want the original around to muck up their nefarious plans. Typical (although somewhat toned-down) Ah-nuld type mayhem ensues. Schwarzenegger has fun with his image, and the supporting players get some fine moments, too. Thought-provoking questions about human cloning add an interesting dimension, raising this one slightly above the genre-pic/star-vehicle level. 124m/C VHS, DVD .
