I Don't Think The Heavy Stuff's Coming Down For Quite Some Time

I'm guessing that Bill Murray won't get into any trouble over this because, well, he's Bill Murray. Which reminds me, the Starz/Encore movie channels have been re-running Meatballs a lot lately, and it's better than I remembered. Probably not in the Top 10 all-time Murray flicks, which I'd say in no order would have to be....
  1. Caddyshack
  2. Stripes
  3. Groundhog Day
  4. Kingpin
  5. Rushmore
  6. Lost in Translation
  7. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (very underrated)
  8. Tootsie
  9. Broken Flowers
  10. Ed Wood

Um, Ghostbusters?

I thought about both of those, even Royal Tanenbaums.

Quick Change. Jousting bicyclist. One of the great movie scenes ever.

I'd throw in What about Bob? but that might just be me.

What About Bob? hasn't aged as well, for my money. Hell, MEATBALLS for whatever reason plays better.

Were you expecting me to add "Larger Than Life?"

Murray was too good in "What About Bob". I hated him so much by the end, it stopped being funny.

The baptism scene in Ed Wood is a film moment for the ages.
