18. That's what...
...the "other" choice is for, and why I picked it.

32. Royal T'baums was my favorite of the flicks listed.
But there are Bill Murray movies (i.e., star vehicles), and then there are movies with Bill Murray in the ensemble. Royal T'baums is definitely the latter.

And the best dysfunctional family comedy I've ever seen.

3. Rushmore
The high spot in another otherwise trendy-boo movie.

20. Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies of all time.

15. Excellent Choice!
I've loved it for a long time. Second would probably be Groundhog Day.

31. Razor's Edge - Somerset Maugham
Murray made this film as part of a package where he made a comedy (stripes or something) and they financed Razor's edge. -- a fairly serious and tragic but wonderful and spiritual and sexy movie based on the Maugham experience among the spiritual monks of the himalayas

6. Actually, I heard his new movie is suppose to be spectacular
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 02:36 PM by LynneSin
Lost in Translation did over 2million in business last weekend and it was only in 183 theaters. Most mainstream movies do about 2000-3000 opening weekend. But the movie has rave reviews and Oscar buzz and it's starring - Bill Murray

Go Figure

And you don't have Rushmore on there? GEez, what kind of poll is this one???

9. Yup, Rushmore Beats Ghostbusters
but you should add his new one "Lost in Translation." It's supposed to be excellent.

10. I voted for "Stripes", but...
To me it's really a three-way tie between that one, "Caddyshack", and "Ghostbusters". :D

And, hey...wait a minute, NONE of THOSE guys look like Bill Murray! :eyes:

B-)

13. It's sorta stupid, but I though The Man who Knew too Little was funny.
It was funny in a stupid sort of way, if you know what I mean.

29. I liked that movie too
Unfortunately, my husband didn't. Maybe, I'll rent it again sometime that he won't be around.

16. The fact that What about Bob has
the same number of votes as Caddyshack shows why the Democratic Party is doomed.

21. Where the Buffalo Roam
He was a better Hunter Thompson than Johnny Depp, I thought.

23. "Lost in Translation"
I saw it last week and LOVED it! Can't wait to get the DVD! It's a definitely different movie for him. There's funny stuff in it, but it's not a comedy (in spite of the commercials). Bill Murray has proven that he is an ACTOR. Pretty damn good for an SNL alumnus.

33. "these are "OR" scrubs"...
..."O, R they?"

Rushmore, hands down.

I also liked him in Razor's Edge. Good movie based on the Maughm novel, but not marketed very well.

37.  SCROOGED! SCROOGED! SCROOGED!
But most of the credit goes to the supporting cast--especially Carol Kane.

38. 'Guess I'm the only person in the world that can't stand Bill Murray.
He was funny on the old SNL but ever since he went into movies he just has this same sort of sarcastic "aint' I cool" droll persona that drives me crazy. He's the same in every movie - sometimes more active than others but, basically, the same. I thought Rushmore was the worst movie I ever saw and walked out which I never do but it was so rotten - well, I walked out.

40. Where the Buffalo Roam
It wasn't as good as "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," but I thought Bill did a great job as Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

Oh, and ditto on the Ghostbusters thing -- heck of an oversight there.
