Bill Murray is headed for some bad craziness in this film, portraying the off-the-wall Rolling Stone journalist Hunter S. Thompson who seems unable to keep himself on the straight and narrow path. Peter Boyle is his dangerous attorney who crucifies himself defying draconian drug sentences in court.
