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.

”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.
Una de esas películas que te dibujan una sonrisa en la cara en esos días que estás triste. Cuenta la historia de un reportero egoísta que una vez más tiene que ir a cubrir la información de la festividad del Día de la Marmota en el pueblo de Punxstawnwey. Cuando se dispone a regresar con su equipo son sorprendidos por una fuerte ventisca que les obliga a regresar al pequeño pueblo. A la mañana siguiente, se repite el mismo día una y otra vez.
Lamento no haber disfrutado de esta producción en años anteriores, es de esas películas que deseas ver millones de veces, no por su excelsa calidad técnica o actoral, aunque es innegable, que la actuación de Bill Murray convierte este film es una experiencia muchas mas llevadera; sino al saber combinar de manera casi perfecta el genero de comedia y romance.
Jugar con un trama repetitiva es algo que si no se saber manejar de la manera correcta, puede convertirse en un completo desastre. 'Groundhog Day' logra que cada 'reinicio' diario sea una experiencia totalmente diferente, donde el personaje de Bill Murray tratará de comprender lo que en realidad sucede; es su desconcierto, y su manera de vivir cada día -o…
A remarkably crafted film in every aspect.
Harold Ramis took a simple time loop plot surrounding the seasonal event and title Groundhog Day and turned it into something extraordinary!
Bill Murray gives a very humorous, multi layered performance one with a lot of heart. Transforming his character as he goes through every day repeating it's self.
It took me way to long to finally see Groundhog Day as I absolutely loved every moment.
Rita: "Do you ever have déjà vu?"
Phil: "Didn't you just ask me that?"
Groundhog Day is the classic story of a man got in a time loop, forced to live the same day over and over again. Bill Murray plays the role of Phil Connors, the man reliving the same day, and he is hilarious as always. Andie MacDowell is also great in her role and she and Murray share some great scenes together. The rest of the cast does a good job too. They are able to use the whole time loop plot device very well making for some great comedy throughout the film.
I had seen this film I believe once before, but it was when I…
En un principio no me había enganchado con su formula y la manera en la que es llevada, pero luego entra en un territorio en el que casi todo es inesperado y de cierta forma gracioso, haciéndola muy entretenida en ese trayecto. Al final creo que es imposible no simpatizar con el mensaje que lleva y los personajes que interactúan en el mismo, pero también creo que el tiempo no le cayó bien y no la disfruté tanto como esperaba.
Si es por elegir el misterio-suspenso de Source Code y la comedia-romance de Groundhog Day, me quedo con el misterio-suspenso-comedia-romance de Edge of Tomorrow y la acción que tiene de fondo.
"Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today."
Watched this classic again. It was a tad boring to go through the same day again, but that was the point! This movie delivers every time with a great script and wonderful acting.
A feel good movie, with a time travel plot. Only that it's the same day over and over and over.
I noticed alot of people put up a review for this movie so i thought maybe I will to i was surprised I hadn't talked about this movie yet so I rewatched it again because i haven't watched it since i was a kid and I still loved it, its so entertaining why being stuck in the same scenes and i love Bill Murray I don't care about what others think of him but he's a great actor.
