Review

Our Score
Richard Dreyfuss and Bill Murray make a dynamic comedy duo in this amiably manic satire on the therapy business directed by ex-Muppeteer Frank Oz. Murray is especially funny as the annoying multi-phobic patient who follows psychiatrist Dreyfuss on holiday and totally ruins his control-freak life. His carefree schizo slobbishness versus Dreyfuss's Freudian posing makes for a great contrast, and the frenzied laughs come thick and fast without losing their welcome sharp edge or delightfully twisted compassion.

Summary

A psychiatrist takes on a friend's client, who turns out to be a well-meaning but annoying neurotic barely able to leave his home. The patient is hugely impressed by the consultant's methods, leading him to follow the therapist on holiday, where he unwittingly proceeds to make his life hell while winning over his family. Comedy, starring Bill Murray, Richard Dreyfuss, Julie Hagerty and Charlie Korsmo.
