This has to be probably my favorite 90's movie. It was done in 1991. I thought it was hysterical. It is one of my favorite summer movies. I love their house. I actually have a piece of artwork my aunt gave me as a wedding present that was done by the artist who did alot of the artwork you see on their walls in the house. I think you can get a good shot of one of them when Richard Dreyfus is brushing his teeth with his finger.. since Bob took his tooth brush.

It is a great movie, I am going to have to get it out and watch it very soon.

This was a good one! It was recommended by a friend who adores this movie, and he was quoting it, and I was wondering what all this "death therapy" stuff was.

Oh yeah ISIS I loved this Bill Murray flick too. I love how he is so oblivious to the fact that he drives Leo crazy!!! I wish that Bill would do some more flicks like this one and Groundhog Day.

I love this movie. I like the beginning when he is trying to get to the doctor's office and he about has a fit. Then when he meets with the doctor and he give him that book, he keeps on going baby steps. Baby steps out the door, baby steps to the elevator. Then he gets in the elevator and screams all the way down. Then he has that goldfish that he carries around. Then when he is on the bus and he has that puke bag and makes a noise like he's puking. I felt sorry for the poor doctor. He drove him crazy. And he took over that Good Morning America interview. But that doctor just froze. [Eek!]

I also liked it when he went sailing and they tied him to that thing and he goes past their house and he's like I'm sailing. [Big Grin]

Great movie! I am a big Bill Murray fan. I liked the way he would say "mmmmmmm" after each bite of food he would take at the table with their family. My wife's sister does the same thing and it drives us all crazy to eat with her.
I also liked him in Groundhog Day, The Man Who Knew Too Little, Larger Than Life, Scrooged and Stripes. Those are my favorite of his. I haven't see The Life Aquatic yet.

I think Meatballs is my favorite Bill Murray movie, and I love him in Tootsie too and Ghostbusters.

I love when he pretended he had Turettes (sp??) Syndrome. And I liked when he'd breath in a bag, and when he asked the guy on the bus to just knock him out.

I like when he gets there and starts yelling " Doctor Marvin!" Doctor LEO Marvin!

Oh yeah that mmmmmmmmmmm thing was funny. Everybody else at the table liked it and thought it was funny. But Dr. Marvin didn't think so. Then it started raining and he had to spend the night.

BUMP

Another early '90s movie with an '80s feel IMO. I've loved this one for a long time, even if at times, I didn't know who I was rooting for.

Bob is hard not to like (a very fun, upbeat kinda guy, in contrast to Dr. Marvin's more sarcastic--maybe not mean, but indifferent--attitude). Although he should have taken the hint that Leo just wanted a vacation, LOL.

Any scene where Leo got mad was funny (i.e. getting a flat tire).

Oh yes. I personally like it best when he starts choking and Bob all but kills him trying to save him. You're all right, it's impossible not to like Bob no matter how crazy he can be.

I love that scene too Chris, because they dump Dr.Marvin to commend Bob for saving him.

Dr. Leo Marvin: All's I want is some peace and quiet!

Bob Wiley: Okay I'll be quiet.

Siggy: And I'll be peace!

[Big Grin] loved this movie!

Nice to see so many Bill Murray fans on the forum. What About Bob? is a great underrated movie. This is the Bill Murray that I enjoy, not this new apathetic thing he's doing in movies like Lost in Translation, et al. Caddyshack, Stripes, and Ghostbusters make the top of my list of Murray Classics.
