Film #20: What About Bob? (1991)

Plot - Could they have made the characters less likable? Why is Bob trying to ruin his new psychiatrist's life? And why am I supposed to think that's a good thing? Maybe they thought it'd be like Rain Man 2.

Form -  Frank Oz should stick to shoving his hand up puppets. He was pretty good as Yoda.

F/X - No.

Acting - Bill Murray's appeal is that he's a pricky guy, but in this one I'm supposed to be convinced that he's the most likable person on the planet. Talk about miscast.

Mise en scene - It's all light and bright fluffy crap held over from the '80s. We'll mark that a positive.

Quotables - No.

Cool stuff - Although it's probably better than most family friendly comedies, a garbage family friendly comedy is a garbage family friendly comedy.
