Bill Murray vehicle that is basically one joke drawn out for the entire 90 minutes. It's all pretty much slapstick by numbers, but Murray is the kind of actor who can make good with the thinnest of material. Basically, if anyone else were in it, it'd be terrible.

Every scenario is basically a different variation of the same joke and it wears thin.

I really enjoyed this one. Yes, it's goofy, but still very funny.
