Groundhog Day ★★★★★

A perfectly executed gem of an idea; one so good that the title immediately became inseparable when discussing any time-loop story made before or since.

I was surprised by how quickly GROUNDHOG DAY runs through its concept once the day starts repeating for weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray), in this latest viewing, but the movie never feels rushed. It also covers every single 'what if..?' you can think of, so has complete mastery and awareness of what it's trying to do. It's pretty funny and romantic, too.
