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.

"What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?" "That about sums it up for me."
There are films that don't necessarily need inventive and artistic camera shots, or groundbreaking special effects, or even gorgeous cinematography to be considered masterpieces. Sometimes a film like Groundhog Day comes along with a smart and charming story with performances and characters that are so well developed that it automatically connects with audiences by reaching for the heart, and turning it into an instant classic. With a premise that might seem boring due to the fact that the lead character has to repeat and live the same day over…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The most light-hearted existentialist suicide film ever made.
Haven't I already reviewed this?
Thanks to @Garrison Fox and @John Lees for finally getting me to watch this film.
"I don't deserve someone like you. But If I ever could, I swear I would love you for the rest of my life."
Why had I not seen this film over the years? That's a question I can't answer.This is Harold Ramis' masterpiece. From the first shots of the film, to the end credits, I was completely absorbed into the film. It's a perfect blend of fun, entertainment, charm, comedy and romance. To me, this is the perfect film. I couldn't find any distinct flaws in it.
Bill Murray represents his transformation of…
Pretty much the perfect comedy film, plus Bill Murray.
"Groundhog Day" is a film that finds its note and purpose so precisely that its genius may not be immediately noticeable. It unfolds so inevitably, is so entertaining, so apparently effortless, that you have to stand back and slap yourself before you see how good it really is.
Certainly I underrated it in my original review; I enjoyed it so easily that I was seduced into cheerful moderation. But there are a few films, and this is one of them, that burrow into our memories and become reference points. When you find yourself needing the phrase This is like "Groundhog Day" to explain how you feel, a movie has accomplished something.
The movie, as everyone knows, is about a man…
"What would you do if you were stuck in one place?"
It took me a really long time to invest in some classic Bill Murray. And to be honest, I didn't feel Groundhog Day was all that worth it.
Don't get me wrong, it was hilarious and Murray's style of humour is a staple in comedy film. However, I just found the premise and overall film itself to be somewhat bland; there was something missing in-between the obvious repetition of the narrative. Groundhog Day is renowned for its concept of having the same day repeat over and over, but also has several sub-plots that keep the film fresh. The changing pace from slapstick comedy to unexpected romance brings a certain…
La empecé a ver el 17 de abril a las 10:00 am y la terminé de ver al día siguiente a las 11:00 am a través de Netflix.
"Clássico" da Sessão da Tarde, que, revisto agora, cerca de vinte anos depois, pareceu melhor do que eu lembrava. Interessante como a ideia da repetição é tratada numa fábula carregada de pretensas "lições de vida", mas que, antes de qualquer coisa, diverte.
The last time I watched this film was when I was a kid. Rewatched because the trailer for that new Tom Cruise movie, EDGE OF TOMORROW (I am not a fan of Cruise. Don't get me started), and it immediately reminded me of a sci-fi GROUNDHOG DAY.
The last time I watched this I had:
1) Not fallen in love with Bill Murray yet.
2) Not been mentally "there" enough to really understand the deeper levels of GROUNDHOG DAY
Really, this could've been penned as some psychological thriller. Think about it. If you had to re-live the same day over-and-over again, thinking that it would be that way for eternity, what would you do?
That's the beauty of this film,…
This film is so much better when you're old enough to understand it.
Una comedia muy inteligente con una divertida y dulce historia. Una película que te recuerda que preocuparse y tratar de hacer feliz a los demás no es tan difícil si te lo propones.
As amazing as this film is (and it is, and I could quite happily watch it every day for the rest of my life), I'll never get over how rubbish that poster is. Man, what a piece of shit.
