A huge Bill Murray fan..but to pick one? Gotta go with Stripes.
07-16-2008, 08:01 PM
The one that made me laugh the hardest was "What About Bob."

If he bothers you, I'll take care of him.
What you've got to do is cut the hamstring on the back of his leg...
...right at the bottom.
He'll never play golf again...
...because his weight displacement
...all his weight is on his right foot...
...and he'll push everything off to the right.
He'll never come through on anything.
He'll quit the game.

I can't and won't pick one. Ghostbusters, What About Bob? and Groundhog Day are my faves.
07-16-2008, 08:56 PM
Meatballs and Caddyshack. I can't decide between the two.
I was a big Ghostbusters fan growing up, so I'll go with that. And now, a completely unrelated story...
I had the pleasure of seeing Bill Murray back in '92 or '93 when I was in my early teens. He was taking part in the pre-All Star Game festivities at Camden Yards. There was a celebrity home run derby, which he participated in. The first pitch that was thrown to him was right down the middle, but Murray comically hit the deck like it was about to bean him. That caused a great response for the crowd. Poor guy... I think he only hit a couple out of the infield. Tom Selleck, of all people, won the contest. The man actually hit one out of the park (over that tall right field wall) and nearly hit two. Pretty impressive for an actor. Good times, man.

I can't just pick one but I liked him in Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, and What About Bob? He was great in all those.
07-16-2008, 10:01 PM
Lost in Translation, Groundhog Day, and Stripes.

Lost In Translation

For me it's a tie between Ghostbusters and Caddyshack.
07-16-2008, 10:34 PM
Lost in Translation, followed closely by Groundhog Day and Caddyshack. Man's done a lot of good movies.
07-16-2008, 10:45 PM
caddy shack is one of the best movies ever and by far the best bill murray movie. later kyle
07-16-2008, 11:20 PM
ghostbusters, what about bob, scrooged, groundhog's day.
07-17-2008, 12:40 PM
Definitely What About Bob!
07-17-2008, 03:44 PM
I would select "Meatballs" as the film where Bill Murray is the primary star and "Caddyshack" in the category where he's one among many stars.
I liked Meatballs because it reminded me of my summer camps experiences and because his character had traces of some of his SNL stuff.
Caddyshack, on the other hand, is one of the funniest movies ever made. It never fails to make me laugh even though I've seen it dozens of times.

"Gruondhog Day" for me. I loved it. :D
07-18-2008, 10:14 AM
Ghostbusters and Lost in Translation

Oh without a doubt Caddyshack. Goonga Galoonga ... Goonga Lagoonga
Followed by Life Aquatic - You can call me Poppa Steve

I'd watch Groundhog Day at every opportunity as a kid.
It has to get my vote.
09-29-2008, 11:37 PM
Without a doubt...Stripes.
All the goofiness aside, the basic training barracks looked a lot like the WW2 barracks at Ft Jackson's "Tank Hill" where I completed my own Basic Training.
Warren Oates' portrayal of Sergeant Hulka was spot on. John Larroquette's portrayal of Captain Stillman was less typical, but damned funny.
It's a great film. A classic, in my opinion.

Caddyshack was his best performance as Carl...
Stripes made the military cool again after Vietnam...
Ghostbusters put him over the top even flirting with one of his test subjects at the beginning...
09-30-2008, 03:26 PM
Ghostbusters all the way. I actually read they might be making a third Ghostbusters, and that of few of the writers from The Office are working on the script. That would be great (I'm a huge fan of The Office).
09-30-2008, 07:55 PM
Lost In Translation... the Santori whiskey part was awesome... lol
09-30-2008, 09:17 PM
'Kingpin' as 'Big Ern McCracken'.
Just hilarious. Such an arrogant asshole and I love it.
09-30-2008, 10:28 PM
Bill Murray, one of my favorite actors, Definitely What about Bob? for me :D
"Stripes"...and not just for the aunt jermmimah treatment scene! Also "Where the Buffalo Roam" was a pretty terrible movie but Murray did an unbelieveable Hunter S Thompson.
