The ESP 'card-reading' scene in the beginning just kills me.

I can't believe you left "Groundhog Day" off the list of options. "Other" it is...

Good one! I had trouble thinking of movies outside of the 80's. Groundhog Day was definitely the highlight of his comedy career, post 80's.

Wow, I can't believe I forgot that (was just looking at the list) - that may be tops.

Where The Buffalo Roam was pretty good as well, one of his earlier flicks, maybe from '79 or '80. What About Bob was decent, although not as funny, IMO.

Groundhog Day. It's hard for me to think of Caddyshack as a Bill Murray comedy. He's great in it, but it's an ensemble piece.

I love, love, love Stripes and I'm actually kinda surprised it's doing so well in this poll!

Agreed. Groundhog Day gets my vote.

Hard to call it a Bill Murray film but his role in Kingpin was hilarious. And that's one hell of funny flick.

Stripes is the big toe of Bill Murray movies(though I voted for Mr. Stay Puft marshmellow man)

Add me to the Groundhog list ...

Stripes, Scrooged, Ghostbusters and Meatballs are definitely great comedies, but Groundhog Day is a legimately great movie.

Love Caddyshack (second-funniest sports movie ever, after Slap Shot), but I agree that it's not really a Bill Murray movie, although he has a great cameo.

I absolutely love Lost in Translation ...although I realize that's an acquired taste. And I love his role as the conflicted ventriloquist in Tim Robbins' Cradle Will Rock (Murray is a right wing nut ... his dummy breaks out in The Internationale on stage) ... but like Caddyshack, that's an ensemble piece.

I never liked What About Bob or Quick Change. Very disappointed by The Life Aquatic and Rushmore. I can't get a handle on The Razor's Edge (although I was surprised to learn that Murray wrote the screenplay).

My Bill Murray Guilty Pleasure is The Man Who Knew Too Little -- I can't help it ... I laugh out loud at the bumbling idiot who everybody thinks is a super spy.

Stripes and Meatballs are the only ones on the list I would call a Bill Murray movie, even Ghostbusters 1&2 he has plenty of help. They are just too dated for me, so it's Groundhog Day, I can watch that one more than once without switching the channel the second time.

Groundhog Day++

Rushmore.
That movie was filmed at my school. Actually the building shots were at my high school, but since our classrooms were so crappy, IIRC they went across the street to a private school to film the indoor scenes (and the uniforms are from the private school as well). Still haven't seen it though.

Groundhog day would get my vote too, but I'm right there with you on "the man who knew too little."

Another vote for What about Bob.

While Bill Murray's character was not the central figure, I submit Caddyshack was the funniest movie listed above. His soliloquy about looping for the Dali Lama is an all time scene. And he's got that going for him, which is nice.

I was going to vote for either Groundhog Day or Scrooged, so...Other.

I think of Caddyshack as an ensemble movie too. Ghostbusters & Stripes are pretty much classics.
