Baby steps to writing this review,
This review is from: What About Bob? (DVD)
Certaintly qualifying for one or Murray's more underappreciated films/roles, What About Bob? hits all the bases without being too cliche about it.
Bob Wiley (Murray) is a severely psychologically unhealthy individual, but he means well. His newest victim/doctor, the megalomaniacal Dr. Leo Marvin (Dreyfuss) just wants to enjoy his vacation with is family, but Bob refuses to go away.
At first what appears to be a light hearted, goofy comedy, actually turns out to be a fairly smart and warm hearted film about a man who just wants to be loved, even if he is a bit overbearing, and the dismantling of one man's ego...so badly that he goes into a catatonic state.
A true comedy classic.
