Bill Murray couldn't hold Robbie the Robot's oil can.


Them's fighting words so get your dukes up. Murray is a Canadian and this Canadian thinks Murray – even though he has fewer acting styles than Robbie – is a national treasure on par with Banff, the Rockies, and Victoria's Empress Hotel (even though these three have greater acting styles than Murray).

Then there's Robbie's drinking problem: a couple of shots of 10W40 and he's singing bawdy songs about pistons pumping and gears meshing; Murray with a couple of shots in him talks about how all things have gone downhill since Meatballs. You chose which one is the more interesting dinner date.

Plus, let's get real, Robbie is a man in a tin suit while Bill Murray's suit contains, er, okay, Bill Murray.

Spencer Tracy, a fine actor, once said that acting is easy – just don't let people catch you doing it. Bill Murray exemplifies that by never having been caught acting in his entire career. Once someone said they caught Murray acting but it was later found to be jock itch.

Know how to get Robbie P.O.'d? Say his mother's a coffee urn and his father a Stillson wrench. Blows a fuse every time.

And, while I have you grabbed by the collar: Ms Lucci will shortly have a star on the Hollywood Walk and Fame. So there!
