"12/27 Synopsis:The deranged adventures of Gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson and his attorney Oscar Acosta, referred to in the movie as "Laslow". I'm surprised that I'd never seen this before now, as I like Bill Murray. I know little of Thompson though. Oddly enough, considering the character he was playing, Murray (who is known for his antics onscreen) seemed rather subdued to me compared to his other films. It was nice seeing him playing opposite Peter Boyle (Lazlo) but there didn't seem to be"

"I think that this even might surpass the cult movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Murray´s Thompson has more depth, but we also have to remember that Gilliam´s version is so mental with the lizards and all. "

"Before Depp & Del Toro did Hunter S. Thompson and Raoul Duke, Bill Murray and Peter Boyle rocked it hard and psychotically and stacked with drugs. "

"August 6 I really enjoyed this movie. I thought that Bill Murray was very convincing as Hunter S. Thompson. Peter Boyle also did a good job playing his character. It's too bad this movie isn't well known as the other Hunter S. Thompson adaptations. It does not deserve to be overlooked."
