An average movie

Even though Frank Oz is not really an amazing director, I always had a weak spot for his movies so I was really eager to check this one out. Before his career took a new turn with movies such as 'Broken Flowers', 'The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou', 'Lost in Translation' and 'The Royal Tenenbaums', Bill Murray was mostly famous for such laugh-out-loud performances.

On one hand, if any other movie had a character like Bob, they would come off as annoying and unsympathetic. But the w... read more

On one hand, if any other movie had a character like Bob, they would come off as annoying and unsympathetic. But the writing in this one doesn't take that low road as Bob seems no worse than pitiable for the most part. And while it treats the subject of mental illness with tact (including a 12-year-old boy's thanatophobia), it also loses grounding in reality as the movie progresses. On the other hand, the comedy can be really funny. Bill Murray as the title character made me laugh a good number of times. This alone ” read more
