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.
The story of a man who thinks he's a god who actually becomes a god and finally learns how to be a man.
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?
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…
I heard Stephen Tobolowsky in a recent interview talk about getting new script pages during the filming of this masterwork. It's hard to believe any of it was written on the fly--the whole thing is so seamless & (yes) profound.
"Compare Groundhog Day to last year’s like-minded, entertaining, but comparatively hollow Edge of Tomorrow. In that film, Major William Cage uses his predicament to become the super soldier necessary to save the world. Sure, there’s an element of fatigue in Tom Cruise’s performance, but nothing like the sense of forlorn resignation that Murray communicates when he admits to Rita (Andie McDowell) that he is a God and moves around the diner to prove the omniscience he possesses in the vacuum of that day. The same evidence that leads Phil to consider himself a God also inspires a montage of pointless suicides. In the metaphysical architecture of Groundhog Day, God-like status is an empty status, a status of meaninglessness, not power."
I think this will become my annual christmas film - 22 years down the track, and it's still one of the funniest films I've seen and the internal logic of the screen works a trick. Bill Murray at his best.
Una de las mejores comedias de todos los tiempos, y una de las mejores películas de Bill Murray, esta película no solo destaca por su ser una idea inteligente, sino realmente fresca en su momento.
El rey del espectáculo es sin duda Murray, que está fantástico como Phill, y nos ofrece ese "gilipollas con corazón" al que tanto nos acostumbró en sus trabajos. Andy McDowell está más...menos presencial, pero cierto es que no le dejan tanto tiempo en pantalla como para demostrar nada.
Lo genial de Atrapado en el tiempo es como estructura su guión y edición y nos hace participe de la verdadera desesperación que está sintiendo Phill al estar atrapado en el mismo día; y como consigue sacar el mejor provecho de ello. Su arco de personaje es perfecto y se puede ver su progresión y maduración poco a poco, sin ninguna trampa de guión (salvo quizás el mendigo).
En definitiva una comedia de obligado visionado.
it's like the majora's mask of films
Lá no início dos anos 80, até por volta do final dos anos 90, começaram a surgir uma diversidade de obras cinematográficas na indústria norte-americana, que chamava a atenção das famílias até às salas de cinema. Pais e filhos juntos para ir ver filmes que tornar-se-iam grandes clássicos do cinema. Steven Spielberg, John Hughes, Chris Columbus, Robert Zemeckis e Harold Ramis, são grandes exemplos de artistas que realizariam grandes filmes que ficariam marcados na infância e juventude de muitas pessoas.
"Groundhog Day", de Ramis, é um ótimo modelo desse subgénero do cinema. Porque simplesmente é uma fita divertidíssima e com uma mensagem positiva muito inspiradora. E além do mais, é um filme delicioso que jamais deixa a audiência aborrecida. Aliás,…
Best comedy of all time! But it's also so much more than that. It makes you wonder what exactly you would do with godlike knowledge on a day like any other. The beauty of the movie is that it inspires me to make the most of everyday.
For some reason I'd always thought this film has something to do with American Football. It doesn't and I don't know why I thought that.
If you don't know its about Bill Murray, an arrogant news presenter, who is forced to re-live a single day over and over again. He uses as many approaches as possible to find a way to live a day at a time until it starts having a profound and positive affect on his personality (for the better).
The film works because it taps into one of those what if? questions. What would you do if you won the lottery? What would you do with a time machine? What would you do if you could go…
