About the Movie

Comic star, Bill Murray, is at his wildest as America's leading "Gonzo" journalist, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, the legendary underground reporter whose passion for writing was second only to his love of weird chemicals, alcohol, violence and insanity. Along with best friend (Peter Boyle), Murray offers a manic look back at the Sixties and Seventies as an eyewitness to everything from a free-for-all San Francisco drug trial to a one-on-one bathroom interview with then Presidential candidate Richard Nixon. This off-the-wall comedy also boasts a musical score by rock superstar Neil Young.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Mr. Murray is clever whenever he is audible... But the story rambles desperately, and there are times when the screenplay is barely there. Mr. Thompson's only identifiable quality soon becomes facetiousness, and it wears terribly thin. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 21, 2015

Rotten: [Where the Buffalo Roam] features a number of amusing set-pieces of irreverent lunacy, but lack of serious substance renders film too frivolous and detached from reality. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 21, 2015

Rotten: Where the Buffalo Roam is a shambling stiff, destined to tarnish the reputations of everyone responsible for it. – Gary Arnold, Washington Post, Jul 21, 2015

Rotten: This is the kind of bad movie that's almost worth seeing. But there are large things wrong with Where the Buffalo Roam. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 21, 2015

Bill Murray is amazing in this epic movie. If you like rude comedy it's a solid pick. I loved it!

It cannot be watched.

The movie is described as including a score compiled by Neil Young. It isn't the truth. The original score that include Bob Dylan and Jimi Hyndrix has been replaced with non descript synthesized non music. The movie is unwatchable in this state. I was so disappointed. I want my money back.

This movie is a classic!

This a great move. I'm not sure what the other review is talking about, the soundtrack is fantastic. Some of Neil Young's and Bob Dylan's best wo
