He's having the worst day of his life... over, and over...
A narcissistic TV weatherman, along with his attractive-but-distant producer and mawkish cameraman, is sent to report on Groundhog Day in the small town of Punxsutawney, where he finds himself repeating the same day over and over.
A fascinating blend of heartfelt narration, wonderful direction, clever writing, impressive performances & remarkable use of humour, Groundhog Day is one of the most exciting, witty & original concepts to grace the film canvas and isn't just one of the best films of its year or decade but is simply one of cinema's finest comedies of all time.
Set in the town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, Groundhog Day concerns a self-centered meteorologist who, for unexplained reasons, finds himself stuck in a time loop & always ends up living the same day with same events over n over again. The plot covers his confusion, frustration, hedonism, depression & acceptance of his fate after which he starts re-examining his life & priorities.

”What if there is no tomorrow?”
Groundhog Day proves that even romantic comedies can be pleasant experiences and it proves that a fresh idea can make the most cliched stories and characters exciting. It takes a very simple idea, extends it and eventually extracts something new and refreshing out of it, this praiseworthy ability of using an original idea to re-tell a predictable story in an unpredictable way enables Ramis’ film to grab the attention of its viewers and surprise them, it is not only inventive with its main idea but it is also creative when it comes to developing that idea and creating believable characters and charming dramatic situations.
This must have been a…
Haven't I already reviewed this?
Harold Ramis was a bit of a genius wasn't he? Not many directors could have made such an entertaining time-loop film with such a feel-good factor. Sentimental, touching, but ultimately very funny, Bill Murray showed his comedy chops alongside a rather fetching Andie MacDowell who for once wasn't shit. Full of wit, full of fun, and with just enough memorable gags to endear it to millions, Groundhog Day deserves its place among the best of nineties comedies. Murray for some will be always be Dr Peter Venkman or even Lost In Translation's Bob Harris, but for me with the exception of that hairpiece in Kingpin this remains his funniest turn in a career littered with iconic characters.
Groundhog Day or: (Time Spell as translated for me
,well will sound very strange if they translated for real this title)
Harold Amis R.I.P. you did an masterpiece of rom-com ever.
Why this never been nominated at least for best original screenplay at the Oscars? Or Bill Murray. Sometimes great comedies is been snubbed.
Dear Bill Murray, I wrote you this:
I love you, Bill Fucking Murray.
I love you, Because you have the same name as mine.
I love you, Because you wash dishes for strangers.
I love you, Because you read poetry for workers builders.
I love you, Because you owns your own baseball club.
I love you, Because you did Lost In Translation.
I love you, Because…
Bill Murray forever

Harold Ramis & Bill Murray was an incredible comedy film partnership
One of the greatest comedies ever made. To live the same day over and over again.
Bill Murray at his best. Funny, charming, and touching.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I always said "yes of course I have Seen Ground Hog Day!". The problem is my memory of it is so minimal that I can't even give you approximation of how young I was, or display full confidence that I actually seen the whole thing. So I watched it to end this lying fog of a memory.
Conclusion: Groundhog day is not the laugh riot I thought it was. It's not really a funny movie as much as it is an overall pleasant and hopeful experience.
Biggest Complaint: How does the ground hog only appear for about to minutes of the movie. The real star was prevented from shining.
