What About Bob?
Director: Frank Oz
Starring: Bill Murray, Richard Dreyfuss
About a very talented psychotherapist (Dreyfuss) who is driven to madness when among his most dependent patients (Murray) tracks him down while on a family vacation.
Again, the plot is pretty basic. The relationship between a talented doctor and his needy patient, but i opens itself up for comic gold. Murray plays a manipulative and needy patient who believes he needs to be constantly supervised and verified by his beloved doctor. The doctor however thinks the patient is irritating and tries several times to get rid of him.
Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss play off one another really well throughout this movie. Murray’s role as this somewhat loveable, and yet still irritating patient known as Bob works incredibly well.
It is a solid 1990’s comedy and among Murray’s finest work in my opinion.
