I think it's just pretty tough for Bill Murray. He's been good in a bunch of '80's movies, like Stripes, the Ghostbusters movies, Little Shop of Horrors, Scrooged, etc. He also was pretty good in Groundhog Day, What About Bob?, etc. I actually like Bill, but I think it's just that it's pretty hard these days to see a good movie with him in it. Though he was pretty good in Lost in Translation.

Really he's still the one member of the SNL/SCTV generation that's holding his own at all; the others have now become mostly pale shadows of what they once were (it never helped that most of them were typecast from the moment they jumped to film and were rarely if ever given any input into their work by the executives).

Oh yes, of course, of course, not to forget that he was robbed the Best Actor Oscar by Sean Penn back in 2003. And a lot of people, as well a a ton of critics, were hoping for him to win that award.

As was I.  Further proof, in my mind at least, that the Academy is openly prejudiced against comedians.  I think he should have been nominated for doing Peter Venkman as well, for he did so much better there than with most of the serious roles throughout 1984 (I would also have given either Harold Ramis or Rick Moranis consideration for Best Supporting Actor as well).

I actually found that Bill Murray's performance in Lost in Translation was not comedic. I think Lost in Translation was actually a drama. But yes, I guess the Oscars are only interested in comedians doing dramatic films. Like Robin Williams (who was robbed of an Oscar in 1987, for "Good Morning, Vietnam"). However, he was able to win an Oscar, not in a comedy, but in a drama...so I guess the Oscars do like comedians, but would rather have them be in different genres.

Bill got in trouble for driving a golf cart drunk in some Europeon country.

The same reason they insist on remaking A CHRISTMAS CAROL and IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE.

Have you watch the movie,or read the comic?GARFIELD is lazy and doesn't care about his weight?

What I don't get is how in the hell dows Garfield like Lasagna? Doesn't that make him fat for sure? Eating too much Lasagna? He probably thinks about that, mostly for dinner actually.


It was a "dramedy," but according to most people, it's a little more of a comedy.

My advice, stick with the Garfield Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas specials that CBS plays every year.
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

That doesn't make sense. Murray was the voice of Garfield, so Garfield's sarcasm was Murray's sarcasm.

Well, like I said in another thread, a few funny lines or moments can't save a movie as a whole.
