    Bill Murray has been cracking me the hell up for my whole life. I just saw Zombieland, where he makes an odd appearance that I shall not spoil for everyone, but its just the weird kind of stuff that I've always enjoyed from him.

    Quite Hilarious! At his funniest in the movie "What about Bob!". I'll never forget when he made his psychiatrist need to see a psychiatrist haha

    O.K. I'm only going four stars here. I enjoyed the Tod and Lisa skits with Gilda and the lounge singer was pretty good but that's about it. His later work just keeps getting better though. Caddy Shack, Groundhog Day, The Life Aquatic, What About Bob, Rushmore, and many others.

    He's okay, I'm not in love with him though like other people, and he's somewhat overrated, not as much as Will Ferrell though, but he's pretty up there.

    Although Bill Murray is a genious in later movie work like Groundhog Day and What about Bob? He was comparetively sub-par in comparison to other greats

    Now he is FUNNY. I love the Groundhog Day movie the best and he was funny on SNL too.

    A man with the talent to make the transition to making good movies. How unlike Will Farrell.

    I think Bill Murray is enormously funny. The only reason I gave him a 4 rather than a 5 is that I believe his comedic strength is skits and stories rather than stand-up. And I would give exactly the same commentary/evaluation regarding John Cleese.

    Not Even A Stand Up

    I liked Belushi and Dan A. better on SNL, but Bill Murray's movie career has certainly been more interesting (and better!) That said, his lounge singer skit was classic, and his bit with Gilda Radner (when they played those dorky kids--can't remember their names) was great too.

    Bill Murray is not a stand up comic.

    Even if he did nothing else worth noting, the Star Wars song alone from SNL earns him five stars. Stripes was a damn good movie.

    Little by little, Murray has established himself as being one of the best comedic actors of his generation. He has good timing and gets solid chemistry going with other actors. But a stand-up comedian he's not.

    This list is for stand-up comedians. Did Murray ever do stand-up, save perhaps early in his career? Aside from that possible objection, Murray has mastered the combination of goofiness and dry wit. The list of immortal comedies in which he starred or had significant roles is impressive: Caddyshack (1980), Stripes (1981), Tootsie (1982), Ghostbusters (1984), and Groundhog Day (1993). He also provided a well placed comic relief in Wild Things (1998). The bottom line is that Bill Murray is probably the most successful Saturday Night Live cast member who left for movie stardom, and for good reason. Bill Murray was born on September 21, 1950 in Wilmette, Illinois.

    I loved his nightclub singer routine the best. Who can forget him singing "The Love Boat" and the "Theme to Star Wars"? Absolutely hilarious!

    Bill Murray is by far the best SNL performer ever (among those who are still alive, anyway). He can convey with his eyebrows what a lesser comedian would need his entire body to say. I don't think he's ever delivered a bad performance, even though he's been in some bad movies.

    Never loved Murray on SNL - his movies made more sense - Meatballs, Ghostbusters, Stripes - all classics!

    Naturally funny. His SNL work was short lived but excellent nevertheless. He's had alot of film sucess since then, and is probably the most successful of all SNL players in film roles. The only one who might beat him for film success is Eddie Murphy.

    Bill Murray was right at home at SNL. He was truly one of the funniest of the earlier episodes. SNL also opened the door for his movie career (which has been somewhat disappointing), but nonetheless, this man is a comedic genious.

    His work as "Todd" with Gilda was priceless and the lounge lizard never gets old to me.

    Not an original NRFPTP, but easily one of the best. He was fearless, he was boundless. One of the top three ever on SNL (with Belushi & Crystal).

    Bill Murray has to be one of the greatest comedians ever. In addition to what Magellan has said, Bill Murray has a totally unique comedy style, that has never been present on anyone else. It's ironic, sarcastic and sadistic. I think that his best comedy has to be "Quick Change". It is in fact, the funniest movie in existance, even though it's one of the most underrated. But Bill Murray is just way to brilliant for the role of Chip in this movie. If you don't know much about Bill Murray, just watch "Quick Change", and the word comedy will have a totally different meaning to you. I have no more words to describe Bill Murray. He is a complete genius as a comedian, as well as an actor.

    One of my favorite actors. Bill Murray has this understated, sardonic style that completely cracks me up. Whether he's telling a carful of old ladies in Ground Hog Day, "Really ladies, I had the jack, I had the tire, it was no problem," or coaching "Wudie the Wabbit" in Meatballs, or whipping through Czechoslovakia in a kick ass urban assault vehicle in "Stripes," Bill Murray is one of the few actors who is consistently laugh out loud funny. I also thought that his performance in Rushmore was outstanding - it showed he can play a somewhat darker character just as well as he plays a clown. I especially liked the scene when he is sitting on his diving board drunk as his annoying sons run around and his wife flirts with a guy 20 years younger than her.

    Consistantly good, from Caddyshack to the Man Who Knew Too Little

    Bill Murray just didn't amuse me when he was on SNL. His characters were really annoying and unfunny. He just couldn't take on his roles as well as the others could.

    With the exception of his bad lounge singer routine during SNL, Bill has always seemed just a little too intense for the moment. Never cared for any of his movies - especially the cheap laughs low brow stuff like "Caddy Shack".
