Storyline

Bill, Brian, John, and Joel Murray provide a comedic look at the game of golf in this documentary travelogue of the foursome playing golf courses while spoofing the whole sport. It should be noted that the brothers are devout players of the game, but their comedic skills simply enter their play. A fifth brother, Ed, also makes an occasional appearance.

Expected more from a show with Bill Murray
18 April 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

In the new Comedy Central show, "The Sweet Spot," Bill Murray and his 4 brothers, John, Joel, Ed, and Brian, compete in teams of golf, using slapstick comedy during the 18 holes. I must say I expected much more out of this show than I got, and the "comedy" if you must call it, was weak and stupid. The same kind of slapstick used in the "Police Academy" series was used in this show, and to tell you the truth I laughed only once or twice during the show. How Bill Murray agreed to this show is beyond me. Maybe he thought it would be a good way to work with his brothers. Anyway, overall this show fell short on it's face with the jokes and comedy. Lets all hope Bill Murray decides to go back to his old comedy work, like "Stripes," "Groundhog Day," and the other Murray classics. 1/5 stars, don't even watch it if you're dead bored.
