1991 film, Bill Murray introduces us to the phobia-prone Bob Wiley,
diagnosed with “multi-phobic personality characterized by acute
separation anxiety and extreme need for family connections.” Bob follows
his therapist, Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss), on vacation to
Marvin’s lakefront home in Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire (actually
filmed at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia). Bob gets along splendidly
with Marvin’s wife and kids but clashes with Marvin, and hijinks ensue.
The movie grossed more than $63 million at the box office and became one
of Murray’s most popular movies.
