What is your favorite Bill Murray movie?

Inspired by the John Candy thread, my own curiosity, and my love of just about anything Bill Murray's been in.

The forum limits you to just 10 poll choices, so I tried to pick films where he has a leading role and that most have seen, still I had to leave off some good ones such as Quick Change, The Royal Tenenbaums.

Wow, that's really tough to pick just one. So many classics, but I had to go with Ghostbusters.

Of course "Caddyshack" is my favorite but I don't consider that a Bill Murray movie, although his character is one of the best in the movie it still is fairly minor. So I gotta go with "Groundhog day".

I really like Groundhog Day. That film is a genuine classic. Rushmore is a very close second.

Wow, so much to choose from, and even some great ones not on this list (Cradle Will Rock and Ed Wood and Kingpin came to mind, tho I know those aren't movies driven by his star power). Rushmore, What About Bob, and Groundhog day are instant top choices, but Groundhog Day wins my top vote.

I picked the Man Who Knew Too Little.

Oh, wait..you wanted the FAVOURITE Bill Murray flick.

Well, that would be every other flick you listed.

I had to go Groundhog Day, but What About Bob showcases his talents just as well.

Baby Steps, people. That's what its all about.
