Directed by Harold Ramis, Groundhog Day…
Film #33 of Project 90
”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…
I’ve seen Groundhog Day a couple of times before and it always made me laugh. I considered it a deftly made comedy, but I had never considered it as a candidate as a “Great Movie”. Roger Ebert lists Groundhog Day as one of his great films and I can see his reasoning.
Everyone knows the gimmick behind Groundhog Day by now. Weatherman Phil (Bill Murray) is forced to live the same day over and over until he finally learns to be a better person. The possibilities are endless and a wellspring for jokes. What makes the film work is that it is able to transcend the gimmick and tell a heartfelt story of a man’s ability to change and connect with other people in a meaningful way - all while being entertaining. And even the normally irritating Andie MacDowell is charming in this movie.
I heard so many good things this Bill Murray classic, I can't lie, I thought it was boring first 20 minutes but it the picks up after you the Bil experience his first day over again. It was interesting how Bill character handles each following day, in some days he takes advantage and the others how it's making him go mad. Also dealing it forces his character to grow and becomes a person. Andie MacDowell is a sweetheart and I enjoy bill and Andie MacDowell relationship as they get closer, it was one the highlights of the movie for me. Groundhog Day was heartwarming and really funny. It's a great vehicle for bill Murray to shows his comic chops, it was a real treat.
Groundhog Day really is a great film and a possible classic.
It has a rather silly concept, but conveys great ideas about time, the passing and pace of it, and how a minuscule amount of it (one day) can be life changing.
Overall, a fun and profound hour and forty minutes.
Since I got my 4K TV, I upgraded to 4K Netflix and this was one of the titles in 4K. Just a delightful film that always leaves me with a grin on my face.
Some good laughs with Bill Murray on excellent form. Seen this many moons ago so it was nice to revisit this film. Nice heartwarming comedy.
I was kind of surprised how few of the jokes came visually, and instead from Murray's perfect delivery and the films script. I have always liked Groundhog Day, if only beacause I've watched it so many times, being my dad's favourite film.
One of Bill's best, and the end of an era of comedic dominance. If you look at what came next, Bill no longer was classic Bill. Sure he tried with Larger Than Life and The Man Who Knew Too Little, but Groundhog Day was his swan song.
After this, he did shitty voice over work, took some really good supporting roles, and reinvented himself with his partnership with Wes Anderson. He became a different guy, and I have to admit, it took some time to get used to it. I LOVE Bill Murray, and even though Rushmore is one of my favorite movies, watching movies like Broken Flowers, and City of Ember just made me sad for the good old…
My nostalgia-tinged, go-to feel-good movie. I hope everyone has a movie like this in their back pocket for whenever they need it. If there are flaws in Groundhog Day (and I'm sure there are), I'm blind to them, and that doesn't bother me at all. I just love the film's impressive emotional range and how it squeezes its premise for just about all that it can while always being a well-paced, solid comedy.
I came so close to giving this a 4.5, because I wish I understood why the same day is being repeated, but the rest of the movie completely cancels that out. There are a handful of movies that have made me think this much while watching it. Not to mention the accompanying laughter. Definitely one of my new favorite comedies.
