Meanwhile, Bob Wiley is a recluse who is so afraid to leave his own apartment that he has to talk himself out the door. When Bob is pawned off on Leo by a psychotherapist colleague, Bob becomes attached to Leo. Leo finds Bob extremely annoying. When Leo accompanies his wife Fay, his daughter Anna, and his son Siggy to a peaceful New Hampshire lakeside cottage for a month-long vacation, Leo thinks he’s been freed from Bob. Leo expects to mesmerize his family with his prowess as a brilliant husband and remarkable father who knows all there is to know about instructing his wife and raising his kids. But Bob isn’t going to let Leo enjoy a quiet summer by the lake. By cleverly tricking the telephone operator at the doctor’s exchange, Bob discovers the whereabouts of Leo and his family. Despite his phobia about traveling alone, Bob somehow manages to talk himself onto a bus, and he arrives in New Hampshire. Leo’s vacation comes to a screeching halt the moment he sees Bob. With his witty personality, his ability to manipulate people, and his good sense of humor, Bob quickly becomes an annoyance to Leo, but not to Fay, Anna, and Siggy, because they think Bob is fun while Leo is dull. Fearing that he’s losing his family to Bob, Leo frantically tries to find a way to make Bob go back to New York, and it’s not as easy as Leo had hoped. Leo finds himself stepping outside the law to try to get Bob to stay away from Fay, Anna, and Siggy–Leo slowly goes berserk, and makes plans to kill Bob.
Plot: Before going on vacation, self-involved psychiatrist Dr. Leo Marvin has the misfortune of taking on a new patient: Bob Wiley. An exemplar of neediness and a compendium of phobias, Bob follows Marvin to his family’s country house. Dr. Marvin tries to get him to leave; the trouble is, everyone loves Bob. As his oblivious patient makes himself at home, Dr. Marvin loses his professional composure and, before long, may be ready for the loony bin himself.

I loved this movie. I am sure most people would disagree with me but I would probably put it in my list of the ten best comedies I have ever seen, all time.
This is Bill Murray’s best work since Ghostbusters, at least as far as comedy goes. I also liked him in Broken Flowers and Lost in Translation but those were more dramatic roles.
I loved the way that Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss played off of each other. I don’t want to say too much or I’ll give away what happens between them through the movie but I thought they did a fantastic job at creating comedic moments. The scenes where Bob horned in on Leo’s family moments and right into their home were incredible. I laughed out loud through the entire movie. And it’s a good family movie anyone can enjoy.
Ten out of ten from me.
Laughter all “About”….
Bill Murray has always been the master of the art form of comedy. He shows he still is in “What About Bob?”. IN fact, this whole movie is a tribute to his gifts as a vocal AND a physical comedian.
The surprise is Richard Dreyfuss.
As Bob Wiley, Murray seeks out the help of Dr. Leo Marvin (Dreyfuss) for a cure to his seemingly endless list of phobias (exploding bladders and Tourette’s Syndrome, for starters). At first, Marvin is professionally helpful but aloof until Bob ingratiates himself onto him AND his family at their New Hampshire vacation house, by the end Bob finds himself growing more free from his restrictions as the good doctor seems to adopt some phobias all his own, paramount among them being Bob.
As Marvin, Dreyfuss plays an arrogant know-it-all boor whose above-it-all air is put to the test by the earthy good nature of Bill’s Bob. As the doctor slowly freaks out and loses his cool on an ever-growing basis, Dreyfuss shows himself to be an expert at the slow burn, which he masters all the way through this movie.
Of course, Hagerty plays Marvin’s quiet wife Fay very well, wondering what in the world he could have against such a nice guy as Bob. Korsmo, as the death-obsessed son of the doc is great and has a terrific line about his obsession (“Maybe I’m in mourning for my lost childhood.”).
The “Good Morning, America” interview is a classic scene, as are the scenes with venomous locals like The Guttmans (“Burn in H**l, Dr. Marvin!”) and such simple scenes as Bob saving Dr. Marvin from choking, going on a New York-to-New Hampshire bus ride and making such tired gags as dry heaves funny twice (nice going, Bill!).
It’s an ensemble piece, all right, and this ensemble makes it all worthwhile, with Frank Oz’ distractingly laid-back direction a major asset throughout. See if you don’t agree when you see the last two scenes in the movie.
