A nice surprise was to notice that Frank Oz is the director of this movie as well. He has also done the dirty rotten scoundrels, a movie I have in my top 5. What is common in these two movies, is for sure, the great locations both of them are filmed, as well as the chemistry between the protagonists. Also the soundrtract of this two movies is very similar.
During the movie is amazing how your compassion shifts from Bill Murray to Richard Dreyfuss and vice versa. At the end of course Richard Dreifuss is to be pitied. Admitedly in the beginning what takes place in New York can make you think is a so and so comedy but when the action moves at the country house of the octor then the movie becomes a masterpiece.
A very entertaining movie with great laughs where my favorite moments are when everybody recognizes Bill Murray from his appearence to Good Morning America whereas Richard Dreyfuss who sit just next to him passes completly unnoticed.
I am sure that this is by far the best movie of Bill Murray (not of Frank Oz though I believe Dirty rotten scoundrels are much better with better comic climaxes is ALL the scenes). Great movie for family entairtainment and a good movie to suggest to your friends. Be prepared to laugh a lot.
