Favourite Bill Murray film

Post by yethboth » Tue Jun 26, 2007 4:16 am

What is everyone's favourite Bill Murray film?

Mine is Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day and Kingpin.


Bill Murray is one of these unique characters where face expression, personality and character wise you cannot tell if he is serious or just plain taking the mick big time. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wasnt it just "stripes"?
Groundhog day , ghostbusters, and ..er quick change (the one where he does the bank robbery dressed as a clown), mainly due to the drinking game my mates used to play with it .

Groundhog Day is my fave, Ghostbusters a close second and Lost In Translation third. The fact that Groundhog Day manages to overcome Andie MacDowell (sp?) speaks huge volumes about how good the rest of the cast and how good the writing and ideas are. The sequence with the alarm clock and his repeated suicide attempts still make me laugh and I've seen them dozens of times.

Stripes I really didn't enjoy that much. Harold Ramis (Egon in GB) is in it and is really bad throughout. He's never been much of an actor but somehow he's OK in Ghostbusters 1 (GB2 we don't talk about).

Scrooged.

He wasn't in King Pin enough for me to say that one.

Ghostbuster, Groundhog Day, Scrooged and Kingpin, in no particular order.

Was excellent in Ed Wood, Wild things was awesome but he wasn't in much of it.

I forgot to mention Scrooged as another favourite Bill Murray film.


I also remember the time when me and my family went to the cinema to see Space Jam back in 1997 and no-one had any idea that Bill Murray was going to make a special uncredited appearance as a basketball player, and when he appeared, the audience unexpectedly roared with laughter. :D
