Final Third of the Film Saves It to Some Extent
24 September 2018 | by larrys3See all my reviews

For the first two thirds of this documentary, I would say it was painful and sad to watch the young and vivacious actress Sadie Katz (who also directed the film) totally obsessing about having her Bill Murray Experience, to the point of having to check herself into a hospital for exhaustion.

What is this Bill Murray Experience you ask? Reportedly, the iconic actor and comedian is known for randomly crashing various events, such as bachelor parties, ice cream socials, and kickball games, and, of course, causing quite a shock for those who were attending those events.

Well, Katz, after having her engagement broken and other events in her life taking a downturn, began to become totally immersed and, as mentioned, obsessed with finding a way of connecting with Murray and having her own impromptu experience with him.

Thank goodness, this doc, in its final third began to take a better turn, beginning with the interview with the actress P.J. Soles. She worked with Murray on a couple of films, and gave Katz some bona fide behind-the-scenes info regarding her experiences with him on the set of "Stripes".

I won't give away any spoilers here as to how this ended up, but let's just say, for me, the movie took a near 180 as it concluded, and I would say it was all for the best.
