Every film from Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" essays.
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.

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…
I dunno, I just don't go in for comedies so much. There's no suspense, no grit. I mean, I'm sure I will remember the story and various bits as I go through life, and that will be pleasant, but I just don't go in for the comedy experience so much. Murray is great, Michael Shannon is in it (nice trivia fact) and I believe there were various deep and meaningful life lessons buried inside.
Peter Venkman landet in einem kleinen Kaff und zusätzlich auch noch in einer Zeitschleife. Um das Beste aus seiner Situation zu machen, versucht er Shelley Snipes aufzureißen.
Romantische Komödien sind ja mittlerweile eigentlich immer der gleiche Quark. Das es auch anders geht beweist Harold Ramis mit dieser Geschichte.
Ein Klassiker, den man kennen sollte. Deshalb brauch ich hier wohl auch nicht viel mehr erzählen. Nur so viel: Wenn ich jeden Morgen von Cher geweckt würde, würde ich auch durchdrehen.
Bill Murray is on top form in Harold Ramis' brilliantly inventive comedy about a conceited minor league TV weather man who becomes trapped in a time loop, re-living the same eponymous day over and over. The various ways in which Murray attempts to exploit his predicament, including seducing co-star Andie Macdowell with whom he has great chemistry, is consistently funny until he gradually comes to see the error of his ways, but the film deftly balances the caustic with the sweet and never tips over into saccharine. One of the best screen comedies of the nineties.
Probably my favourite of all time. Just perfect.
Top 10 romantic comedies
- Michael Shannon
This is one of the greatest comedies of all time. It's a heartfelt and intelligent romantic comedy that never gets old, even when the same day continually repeats itself.
Not if I'm right, but I think Bill Murray acts as an egocentric jerk in all his films of the 80's and 90's. I had not noticed until recently, I have seen several of these films consecutively. Either way, this is a really cool movie. I loved it. I love the simple way of making films at that time, is now all effects and big productions that are not worth a dick.
Like Mozart's piano sonata #12, the notes are simplistic, the tempo jarring, the transitions nonexistent if not gruesomely stitched, the gestalt of the piece seemingly unchallenging, and yet, by the end, you learn a new respect for the work and for its maker, and you wouldn't change a thing and you want to play it again & again &
