So very Bill Murray
2 October 2019 | by gray-beardSee all my reviews

Very much the dry humor of Bill Murray. Check out the other works of Jim Jarmusch and Bill Murray and maybe you will appreciate this movie better. It must have been fun to make. I hope they make an out take video for youtube. I think it would be fun to watch
