Joey Buck 🎃’s review published on Letterboxd:
“What day is this?”
“It’s February 2nd. Groundhog Day!”
“Yeah, sorry... y’know I thought that was yesterday.”
It’s an odd but wonderful feeling knowing you’re watching one of your new favorite movies for the first time. I was already familiar with most story beats because I’m a big fan of the Broadway show. Now finally, I watched the original movie.
It feels great to say that I genuinely loved Groundhog Day, because it always seemed like a flick I would enjoy. Maybe even an instant favorite. It was.
Phil’s arc is just so masterfully written and executed, with Murray’s signature wit to top it all off. Almost immediately after it ended I purchased the Blu-Ray online and I’m sure I’ll be revisiting this one over and over again.
