      Another excellent Bill Murray role. Bob has a great deal of neurotic emotions. He comes to Dr. Leo Marvin, played by Richard Dreyfuss, for help. Dr. Marvin is a well-known psychiatrist who has just written a soon-to-be bestselling book called �Baby Steps�, which teaches people to take situations one step at a time, as they work to improve or cure themselves. Murray becomes the poster child for Dr. Marvin, claiming it is the

      doctor’s book that has cured him.

      Only Bob is an annoying pest � to Dr. Marvin. To all others, he is charming. When Bob �invites� himself to stay with Dr. Marvin and his family for summer vacation at the lake, Dr. Marvin has his hands full. Turns out, though, that Bob’s interference is therapeutic to Dr Marvin and his family. Dr. Marvin, ever the professional, has, like most professionals consumed by efforts of success,


      • set his family aside. Bob teaches Dr. Marvin what he is missing and helps Dr. Marvin redefine his priorities.

        The comic interaction between Murray and Dreyfuss are timeless. Everyone has had a friend or two that they try to avoid. I might even be one of those friends � latching on to someone, yearning for acceptance. I think that is all Bob needed to overcome his neuroses, and Dr. Marvin’s family gave him that.

        Dr. Marvin needed someone on the outside to show him what his family had been trying to communicate to him � they need him to be there for them. Bob gave him that message.

        If you love either Bill Murray or Richard Dreyfuss, as I do, then What About Bob? becomes a cherished, must-have movie to add to your collection. I recommend it for it’s comedic, therapeutic value, when your heart needs to be tickled.
