”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.
The most light-hearted existentialist suicide film ever made.
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…
The worst soundtrack ever for a truly phenomenal film
Groundhog Day was one of many movies I had seen over the years in parts, out of order, on television. I had always meant to sit down and watch it properly from start to finish, but I never did. In watching it sporadically, I was never enamored with it. Maybe the concept didn't grab me, or perhaps it was something else. I was never really a big fan of Andie McDowell. Yet all through the years, friends and colleague sang the praises of this film. With the release of Edge of Tomorrow, I decided it was finally time to seek this title out and give it another shot. As it turned out, I was just an idiot. This is a…
One of the most original comedies of its time and of all times, Groundhog Day is a profoundly sweet, heartwarming, arresting, and ultimately hilarious movie. Its exceptionally clever writing, Harold Ramis' brilliant directorial work, and Bill Murray's masterful performance have made of it one of the 1990s' most memorable comedy films.
just love anything Bill Murray is in to be honest
Decided to just watch the original after slogging through Edge of Tomorrow. Still holds up very well, though I still wish the opening had more energy to it - the movie just sort of drags itself out of bed and only really gets going once the alarm strikes 6am. The rest is more or less gold.
This film has a really successful performance form Bill Murray, he manages to be funny and likeable when the story requires and also tragic and despicable at the necessary times. The concept of the narrative is interesting and engaging and the writing is witty and enjoyable.
# THEY SAY WE'RE YOUNG AND WE DONT KNOW
We won't find out until we grow

'Cause you got me, and baby I got you
I got you babe, I got you babe #
Just watch it, its worth every star. all 4 of them.

Bill Murray trumps all Andie MacDowellness
