Format: DVD
Bob Wiley is a neurotic man who has a habit of clinging onto his therapists. His last one, not being able to deal with him, sends him to Leo Marvin.

After having just one session, Bob thinks the world of Dr. Marvin. However, the doctor's leaving to spend the rest of the summer with his family, which throws Bob into utter despair.

He calls the doctor constantly demanding to see him, but the doctor cuts Bob off. He manages to find out where he is and goes there.

The doctor's family takes a liking to him but the doctor feels that he is just intrusive. And no matter what he does, Bob just won't go away, and everybody thinks that Leo is the problem.....

Bill Murray playing a mental patient is as good as De Niro playing a psychopath, no matter how crass or silly the film is, you can guarantee a good performance.

Luckily this is one good comedy, and in 1991 there were a lot of sleeper comedies that did really well. Murray as expected is excellent, and Dreyfuss is just as good. Think of Dreyfuss as the straight man to Murrays comic, then you have the film (probably the reason why they didn't get on.

It's a simple story, made into a laugh out loud movie thanks to the two central performances and the straightforward jokes.

It's just set up after the next, with Leo becoming increasingly frustrated, and bob becoming more endearing. And just when you think it couldn't get any worse, it does.

It's good family fun, with good performances and more than six good laughs.

Recommended.

I had seen this film a couple of years earlier and remembered it being hilarious so took a chance on it when it came out and am I glad I did!
If you are a huge Bill Murray fan like me then there's is no doubt you will like this film. He is at his comic best throughout the film and will have you rolling with laughter.
The interraction between Richard Dreyfuss and Bill Murray is top class and I'm surprised just how underrated this film is.
Definitely worth a watch and would be a great comedy addition to anyone's collection.

This movie really is fantastic. It is one of those movies which can be watched over and over and never ceases to make you laugh. Richard Dreyfuss and Bill Murray really are on top form and work so well together.The storyline is great and script well written. This is a real gem.

Totally unmissed at it's time of release, a total classic comedy film. Murray & Dreyfuess at their comic best!
You just can't help but 'feel' for the neurotic 'Bob' (You can call me Boob) and his harrassed psychiatrist 'Leo' (Call me Dr. Marvin) as Bob sneakily follows his pyschiatrist on holiday.
As Bob gets better, Leo gets very, very ill. Unwittingly, Bob empowers everyone around him, and sends his Dr. to hell & back.
Fantastic casting and performances by all. One of my top five films!

I stumbled across this film back in the 90s because I love Bill Murray films... and it cracked me up! I think him and Richard Dreyfuss are great together in this film and I would say any fan of either actors will love it. :o)

Don`t get me wrong the chemistry between the leads is great and it wouldn`t be the same without either but i think this has to be one of Richard Dreyfuss best performances.I bought the dvd about 4 years ago & have watched/enjoyed it 3 times,that`s maybe it i can`t see me watching it again anytime soon but it`s served it`s purpose.

Review update:31/03/12
Not long after writing this review i sold this dvd but soon found myself missing it.Lucky me came across the dvd again yesterday for £1! So of course i snapped it up & it feels good to be back with Bob!

Format: DVD
Having read the other comments, I'd say they are pretty fair, even the critical one, after all, particularly with comedy, one man's meat is another man's poison! I was recommended this film, and enjoyed it enough to watch a couple of times and now recommend myself.
Bill Murray is great, but I particularly liked Richard Dreyfuss' portrayal of Leo Marvin, not least of all because so many professionals seem to have too high an opinion of their abilities (and no sense of humour!). Without too much analysis (or I might sound like Leo, sorry, Dr Marvin) it is thought provoking that a very real 'them and us' attitude prevails in the mental health business, and it was great to see a big needle being stuck in that balloon! Hope you enjoy.
PS.. 'Baby steps' is such a great concept I wish I'd come up with it first!

The concept sounds amazing: a neurotic and devious (but ultimately kind-hearted) hypochondriac played by Bill Murray causing problems for his pretentious Psychiatrist, However, after not having seen this film for around 10 years, on rewatching I found "what about Bob" more of a predictable and staid "family movie" than I remembered and a bit dated and slow to get going. Richard Dreyfus is OK, but his family feel rather too one dimensional and stereotyped.

Bill Murray delivers with his usual mixture of laid-back and unhinged, and it is his casting and performance saves this film from a total schmatlz fest. I shudder at the thought of this film with Robin Williams in the same role!
