Bill Murray vs. Chevy Chase

Image

It is no secret that there was a lot of animosity between Bill Murray and Chevy Chase when they were both in their prime.  They were also comedic geniuses.  The scene when Chevy Chase visits Bill Murray's home in Caddyshack was 100% improvised.  It was one of the most memorable scenes in the movie.  Keeping with the spirited rivalry, who do you like better?  Who is funnier?  Who has the best resume?

I honestly don't know.  I think Bill has a better resume of movies but The Vacation series (minus Vegas Vacation) was probably my favorite comedy series of all time.  Clark Griswold and Fletch are two of my favorite characters ever.  But from a movie standpoint, I think Chevy got a little more help from his supporting cast in some of his hits like Three Amigos (Steve Martin, Martin Short), Spies Like Us (Dan Akroyd) and Vacation (Cousin Eddie).  Murray did benefit from some great supporting actors as well but most of his movies were all his character.

Who would you pick, Bill Murray or Chevy Chase?
