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.

”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…
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.
Am I ever glad that February is over.
I both love and envy this movie. After so much time of not having been able to, I finally get around to watching it and what so happens but a delightful plot encircling Phil Connors (Bill Murray), a man trapped on February 2nd who learns how to make the most of his days like its the last day he'll ever live… again.
"Groundhog Day," directed and cowritten by the late--and great Harold Ramis, does an excellent job of exploring all the possible storylines one film has to offer, from helping old ladies, to playing chicken with a train, to learning bluesy piano, to learning every detail about every woman in a conquest to sleep with them.
Only for all people…

It's a feelgood movie!
Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again andAgain and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and Again and again and again and again and again and again
For most of this film, it's all very clever and enjoyable and even if it doesn't sweep you off your feet, you think "I'm so clever, I can see all the mechanics of this plot at work and I can appreciate on an intellectual level what the film is trying to do. Yes, very clever."
And then the last scene rolls up and hits you like an ton of bricks. Even if you've seen the film before, it's still a gut-punch of emotion.
That's the real genius of this film.

Simultaneously hilarious and heartfelt, Groundhog Day is not only a showcase for Bill Murray talents in both comedy and drama, but a film which crackles with life like few others.
