Cameron Crowe's Aloha Is Every Bit The Disaster You Suspected

As a rule, I ignore negative buzz about upcoming movies. For one thing, you never know the agenda behind those leaking damaging information about reshoots or bad test-screening scores. For another, the film industry is littered with classic movies that were initially thought to be duds. (How many oral histories don’t » 5/28/15 6:02pm 5/28/15 6:02pm

Bill Murray Reminisces About Slingin' Little Caesars Pizza

Itinerant viral-video elf Bill Murray appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and talked about making pizzas at Little Caesars earlier in life, "back when Little Caesars was really great." (So, like, presumably before they attempted to turn "our pizzas are old!" into a marketing angle.) He worked there with… » 10/22/14 11:39am 10/22/14 11:39am

Bill Murray's Memes Now Outshine His Movies, And St. Vincent Won't Help

What was the last great Bill Murray performance? Maybe Broken Flowers from 2005? Lost in Translation from 2003? Nowadays, some of his best work—or at least the work that gets the most attention—is nowhere near the big screen. He shows up at bachelor parties. He crashes regular folks' engagement photos. He whips… » 10/14/14 10:38am 10/14/14 10:38am

Bill Murray On His Personal Philosophy

Bill Murray showed up after a screening of Ghostbusters in Toronto yesterday, where he spent the better part of an hour answering questions from fans. His best answer was in response to a question about his penchant for weird, unannounced hangouts (crashing the above couple's engagement photoshoot, for instance). » 9/06/14 7:09pm 9/06/14 7:09pm

Unfairly Slimed: It's Time To Forgive Ghostbusters II

In the weeks leading up to June 16, 1989, I can only imagine how incessantly my seven-year-old self pestered my parents to go see Ghostbusters II. I spent years obsessed with the 1984 original, once watching it on repeat from the moment I woke up to the moment I got sent to bed, wearing my plastic proton pack and… » 6/20/14 11:10am 6/20/14 11:10am

Watch Bill Murray And Harry Caray Kick Off The Cubs' First Night Game

Twenty-five years ago today, the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies played the first-ever night game at Wrigley Field. After having only played day games since claiming the park as home in 1916, the Cubs finally succumbed to pressure from MLB, which threatened that if the team ever won a pennant they'd have to… » 8/08/13 4:55pm 8/08/13 4:55pm

The Sports Fan: What I Learned From Three Days Of Watching Baseball With Bill Murray

In 1990, Peter Richmond spent three days with Bill Murray in Chicago, eating and drinking and watching ballgames at Wrigley Field. He wrote about the experience for The National Sports Daily.

Charles Swan Will Make You Hate Charlie Sheen All Over Again

It always struck me as so strange that Oliver Stone, when he was making his name with Platoon and Wall Street, saw Charlie Sheen as his ideal everyman, the audience representative, the proxy, the innocent surrounded by the rot and corruption Stone sees around every corner. Even then, before the drugs and the porn… » 2/05/13 6:30pm 2/05/13 6:30pm

Bill Murray Entertains Minor League Baseball Fans During Rain Delay, Dives Head First On Tarp

Apparently, part of Bill Murray's duties as part owner of the Charleston RiverDogs, a Class-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, is to serve as Director of Fun. The Director can be seen here rounding the tarp-covered bases and taking a nice sloppy tumble dive into tarp-covered home. » 6/10/12 9:54pm 6/10/12 9:54pm

Bill Murray As FDR! Anchorman 2! Opulent Melancholy! Your Authoritative Rundown Of All The New Movie Trailers

In the days before a major holiday, movie news dries up completely. (Unless it's something that's actually genuinely important, like that fact we're gonna have to wait until next year for The Rock and Bruce Willis to be in a movie together.) But before Memorial Day, studios start unveiling a ton of new trailers, which… » 5/24/12 5:38pm 5/24/12 5:38pm
