Bob's a special kind of friend. The kind that drives you crazy!
A successful psychiatrist loses his mind after one of his most dependent patients tracks him down during his family vacation.

"Very funny outing...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
"Murray is at his comedic best...  VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever

Editor's Note
Bob Wiley, a walking encyclopedia of psychological troubles, seeks help from an egotistical psychiatrist who promptly takes off for a quiet family vacation. Bob follows in quiet desperation, quickly endearing himself to the doctor's family but slowly driving the doctor completely mad in this excruciatingly funny film starring Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss.

Plot Summary
The day he leaves on a month's vacation, best-selling author and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss) acquires a new patient, the multiphobic Bob Wiley (Bill Murray). Consumed by his fears of germs, enclosed spaces, and other people, Bob tracks Dr. Marvin to his New Hampshire retreat and arrives on his doorstep for treatment. Dr. Marvin's professional but strained advice to "take a vacation from your phobias" is translated by Bob to mean "take a vacation in New Hampshire," and he starts to become a fixture in their home, to Marvin's growing incredulity and rage--especially when his wife and children, charmed by Bob's childlike enthusiasm, start to think Bob is more fun than Marvin. There seems to be only one way to get rid of Bob, and that's to do it permanently.

Murray and Dreyfuss balance each other perfectly, one growing more sane as the other stumbles toward madness. A quirky family comedy, Frank Oz's WHAT ABOUT BOB? encourages viewers to stop being so straight-laced and start having fun.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"...Expert comic teamwork..." 06/27/1991 p.78

Entertainment Weekly
"...[A reminder] that Murray really is the movies' drollest nutjob..." -- Rating: B 12/06/1996 pp.73-5

New York Times
"...[Dreyfus and Murray are] fortuitous teaming..."| 05/17/1991 p.C15

Los Angeles Times
"...Murray and Dreyfuss have the kind of temperamental oppositeness that great comedy teams thrive on. Just seeing them together is funny..." 05/17/1991 p.F1

Washington Post 7 of 10
...Bob rests entirely on Murray's shoulders. But he more than takes the weight. With his twisted lower lip, doleful eyes and trademark deadpan, he exudes an awkward--and funny --vulnerability. - Desson Howe
