Man, that’s a hard question.
Bill Murray turned 70 on September, 21st!
Automatically, I go to “Groundhog Day” and “Ghostbuster.” Then, you’ve got the daunting task at trying to figure out what the other two films are going to be. You’ve only got a million options to choose from.
For example, where would you put “Stripes?” If you’re looking for an all-star cast, does it get any better than “Stripes?” This may be the hardest list I’ve ever made in my life, but after a lot of thought, I think I can safely say, these are my all-time favorite Bill Murray movies.
First, we’ve got “Groundhog Day.” According to AFI (American Film Institute) “Groundhog Day.” AFI has “Groundhog Day” as one of their favorite fantasy films of all time.
Second, on my Mt. Rushmore of Bill Murray movies would have to be “Ghostbuster.” The 1984 film is timeless and will forever be relevant. Did you know, John Belushi was originally cast as Dr. Venkman? Bill Murray killed it.
My third Bill Murray film to make it on my Mt. Rushmore of Murray films is “Kingpin.” The 1996 classic reigns supreme. How can you not love a movie about “Big Ernie McCracken?” Well, the movie isn’t about Big Ern, but his character is a major player.
Finally, the last movie to make my Mt. Rushmore is “What About Bob?” Remember, it’s not a vacation from your everyday life, it’s a vacation from your problems. I love “What About Bob.” This movie may be on my all-time list. If you’ve never seen it, you’ve gotta watch it. Show it to your kids, anyone who hasn’t seen it.
That was harder than I thought it was going to be. What are your top 4 Bill Murray movies?
