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.

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…
You just know Murray committed some sex crimes at some point during one of his Groundhog Days.
My review -- this fantasy/romantic/comedy film title is now on DVD and it does have a stable profit margin of roughly $56 million. The basic plot is this, the audience meets this arrogant weatherman that is soon to be leaving his occupation at this local TV station, apparently he is heading for a better opportunity. But before he leaves this TV station, he has to go to do this report within this little community situated around this little groundhog, but something goes tragically wrong and until he figures out what needs to change, he has to repeat this day again and again and again until he gets it right. I don't dislike this title, but I don't overly like it…
Groundhog Day might be predictable and sentimental, but it's a classic for a reason. It's a delightful fantasy that takes you for a great ride without ever feeling the need to explain what's going on ... the root cause immediately becomes irrelevant as we delight in watching this arrogant and narcissistic weatherman deal with the curse of being forced to live the same day over and over.
There's a lovely timing to way Phil's emotions and tactics change and the way Murray allows him to embrace each change ... initial confusion gives way to selfish manipulation, followed by a sort of creative pragmatism, giving way to hopelessness and suicidal resignation, and finally attaining a measure of inner peace and fulfillment.…
The best Bill Murray film I've ever seen (yes, even better than Lost in Translation). Murray portrays a sarcastic asshole weatherman who learns how to appreciate love, life, kindness, and happiness. It can almost be read as the 20th century version of A Christmas Carol. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys romance, comedy, and intelligent screenwriting.
Until Only God Forgives came along this was my most hated movie. Truly do not understand the love people have for it
Very intriguing premise, and Bill Murray is the perfect lead for this kind of movie. Groundhog Day is a well done film, with some funny bits, although I didn't exactly find it too hilarious. I also think it became too melodramatic and clichéd towards the end, but take nothing away from it, it's a modern classic for a reason.
A great comedy with a fantastic script and cast.
So. "Groundhog Day."
This particular type of story has been done countless times before and since: a self-absorbed and/or arrogant person goes through a humbling process of some kind and learns to be a better person through his experiences. In this case, Bill Murray plays a conceited TV weatherman whose seemingly impenetrable wall of stubbornness and cynicism is eventually broken down and he learns to appreciate the gift of life a little bit more. But two things specifically elevate "Groundhog Day" from being overly familiar: 1) its ingenious central gimmick, in which Murray's character (without any rational or scientific explanation, thank God) relives the same day over and over again, and 2) the unassailable sweetness and charm of the actors…
I think this was my first time seeing the entire film, I'd definitely seen parts of it because it was on t.v a lot. I'm very impressed by how it actually turned out for some reason i'm actually surprised by how great it is as everything I heard about it until now was that it was an entertaining comedy. This is a meaningful, inventive, important and spiritual film with a great message, yes it's funny but also dark, depressing and hopeful.
