"There are two kinds of people in this world,
those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't."
This quote from the movie could also be used
to describe the movie itself (as well as anything). If you like Bill Murray, the chances are good that you'll enjoy this film. As the Bob of the title, a paranoid,
obsessive-compulsive patient of Richard Dreyfuss' conservative doctor, he requires more treatment than others- going as far as following him and disturbing his family's vacation.
The family just happen to love Bob, which vexes Dreyfuss even further.
It can be argued that some of the jokes are
hit-and-miss, but much of the dialogue is quite amusing and the comic performances are very good.
