Before going on vacation, self-involved psychiatrist Dr. Leo Marvin has the misfortune of taking on a new patient: Bob Wiley. An exemplar of neediness and a compendium of phobias, Bob follows Marvin to his family's country house. Dr. Marvin tries to get him to leave; the trouble is, everyone loves Bob. As his oblivious patient makes himself at home, Dr. Marvin loses his professional composure and, before long, may be ready for the loony bin himself.
I was looking for a comedy to watch, so I browsed some lists and found this in amongst the top 100 comedies... It's not. The way the characters warm to Bob, a stranger, is ridiculous and not much of the comedy works at all. The first 25 minutes or so are okay as I was wondering where it would lead, but it isn't a path worth staying on. There are inconsistencies with Bob's supposed psychiatric/mental illness issues as well.
