This movie is a laugh out loud laughter riot starring Bill Murray. Bill Murray is one of the most talented and unique comedic actors.
A successful psychiatrist (Richard Dreyfuss) loses his mind after one of his most dependent patients Bob Wiley (Bill Murray) tracks him down during his family vacation.
Bob becomes attached to Leo. Leo finds Bob extremely annoying & clingy. And to add to his woes his wife n children find Bob fun n amiable. As the movie progresses Bob becomes increasingly saner & Dr. Leo starts losing his marbles. Towards the end Dr Leo becomes a psychiatric patient n Bob goes on to become a psychologist!!! One of the most hilarious situation develops when Dr. Leo is interviewed for a television show to promote his upcoming book. The interviewer thinks it’s a great idea to include Bob as a patient. Bob totally hijacks the interview n steals the limelight just being himself. After the interview Bob is a celebrity while no one recognizes Dr. Leo.
~Dr. Leo Marvin: You understand, don’t you? There’s no other solution. You won’t go away.
Bob Wiley: I will.
Dr. Leo Marvin: No, you won’t. You’re just saying you will! But then, after I don’t kill you, you’ll show up again. And you’ll do something else to make everyone in my life think you are wonderful and I’m a schmuck. But I’m not a schmuck, Bob, and I’m not going to let you breeze into town and take my family away from me, just because you’re crazy enough to be fun.
~Bob Wiley: [speaking to workers in a mental hospital] It reminds me of my favorite poem, which is, “Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m a schizophrenic… and so am I!”
~Bob Wiley: [telling a joke] The doctor draws two circles and says “What do you see?” the guy says “Sex.”
Bob Wiley: Wait a minute, I haven’t even told the joke yet! So the doctor draws trees, “What do you see?” the guy says “sex”. The doctor draws a car, owl, “Sex, sex, sex”. The doctor says to him “You are obsessed with sex”, he replies “Well you’re the one drawing all the dirty pictures!”
