Comic wizard Bill Murray (CRADLE WILL ROCK, RUSHMORE) teams up with Academy Award(R)-winner Richard Dreyfuss teams up with (Best Actor, 1978, THE GOODBYE GIRL; MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS) in an outrageously wild comedy that's sure to drive you off the deep end! Murray plays Bob Wiley, a troubled but lovable therapy patient who fears everything! After seeking help from noted psychiatrist Dr. Leo Marvin (Dreyfuss), Bob feels revived. But when the good doctor skips town to go on a quiet family vacation, Bob, afraid of being alone, follows -- showing up unexpectedly at the therapist's lakeside retreat. That's when the fun really begins! Bob innocently becomes the houseguest who just won't leave -- endearing himself to the other family members ... and, in the end, driving the stressed-out shrink absolutely crazy!

Let's just put it simply. Bill Murray is in top form in this movie and so is Richard Dreyfuss. The way the two play off each other and react to one another is spot on. Obviously, Bob is the star of the show. But it wouldn't have worked so well if Dr. Leo Marvin wasn't so utterly annoyed and fearful of him.
Now, this movie might not be as funny if you're not watching it with kids. For some reason, the humor seemed to resonate more strongly with me as a child than as an adult. That's not to say you won't enjoy the movie, but everything will seem much funnier if you watch it with kids.
The part that made me laugh the most was when Dr. Marvin asks Bob and his son for some peace and quiet. Bob says, "I'll be quiet." And his son says, "I'll be peace." It sounds silly, but it was hilarious as a child and I can't imagine a kid not laughing at this movie even in this day and age.
Well worth the watch if you're in the mood for a few laughs.
But it's very cute.
