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.
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!
Murray plays the titular Bob, a neurotic hypochondriac who goes through psychiatrists faster than beans through an infant. His latest doctor is Dr Leo Marvin, author of Baby Steps – a guide to overcoming your fears. When Dr Marvin goes on holiday with his family he thinks Bob will manage, but Bob has other ideas. ‘What About Bob’ has that classic 80s comedy feel that is formulaic, but works so well. You kind of know what is likely to happen from the off, but don’t mind as you enjoy yourself getting there.
The reason why the film works so well is not the slightly humdrum script, but the central comedic performances. Murray is fantastic as Bob, a highly annoying character that you end up liking. However, the unsung hero is Richard Dreyfuss as Dr Marvin; he is excellent as a man driven crazy by Bob’s incessant nature. The chalk and cheese comedy double act is a staple of comedy and when they are done as well as this you can see why. This is an excellent comedy that has heart, laughs and great performances. A gem of the era.
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.
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!
