When you hear the term "comedic genius," Bill Murray is almost certainly one of the names that springs to mind. Ever since breaking out as a Saturday Night Live cast member in the 1970s, he's been at the forefront of comedy. Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Scrooged, and Groundhog Day are among his most beloved films. He can do more than make people laugh, though. In the 21st century in particular, Murray established himself as a formidable dramatic actor with movies like Lost in Translation, for which he received a best actor Oscar nomination.
Because he has worked regularly for several decades, some of his films have slipped through the cracks or seen their notoriety diminished over time. Others were art house pictures that didn't attract a mainstream audience, despite his vast popularity. In any event, they contain undeniably underrated performances from the comedy icon. If you need a Bill Murray fix and have seen his major works plenty of times already, check out one of these movies instead. You'll be glad you did.
