It’s crazy to think that Bill Murray has been acting for almost 50 years. His career has been filled with iconic roles, memorable movies, and yes, of course movie quotes that live rent free in all of our minds. So, with 70+ movies under his belt, where do you even begin when you want to see him in the best of the best? Well, we’ve turned to our Twitter fam and they’ve let us know which movies are a MUST see!
Lost In Translation
The role that landed him his first and only (yes, that still shocks me too) Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Alongside ScarJo, these two form a bond in Tokyo that is unlikely, but is what they both needed the most.
Bill is off to join the Army, and the word on the street is that the Army has never been the same. Just off a break-up, a job loss, and nowhere to live, John (Murray) finds himself now as the ringleader of a team of misfits that are now in the middle of a possible international scandal. Buckle up because you’re in for one WILD ride with this 1981 comedy!
Murray fighting ghosts, well, that’s something that you don’t see everyday. If you haven’t seen this team of scientists fighting to save NYC from paranormal activity, I’d say you’re crazy. Opening this gateway to the other dimension has literally changed the world FOREVER.
The day that never ends. Bill Murray in this film is witty, wisecracking, and having the worst time of his life. There is no one else in the world that could take on the role of Phil Connors the way that Bill did. 10/10 would recommend (the movie, not living a never ending day).
I recently re-watched this classic and it was just as funny as the first time I saw it years ago! Bill takes it to the snooty country club where the golf tournament isn’t the only thing on his mind. This movie is EASILY the most quotable movie that will go down in history as maybe one of the best sports movies ever.
Sure, Bill might not have an iconic role in this movie, but we can ALL agree that we would act the same way that Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) did when he met him. Murray is calm, cool, casual and wearing one epic hairpiece that no one will ever forget.
Bill Murray as a summer camp counselor isn’t something that we want, but something that we NEED! Take it back to 1979 where Bill wears Hawaiian button-downs, schemes against the rival camp, and of course, gives everyone the time of their life!
There’s no way that I would forget about the Christmas movie that should be put on your holiday movie list. Bill takes on a Charles Dickens’ twist that is everything that you could imagine and MORE. With a visit from a New York cab driver, a fairy, and a headless messenger, you know you’re in for a wild comedy ride.
