Groundhog Day ★★★½

I felt I had to check out what inspired the recent Hulu original film Palm SpringsGroundhog Day.

The first act was rough, and the jokes fell flat for me; I wasn’t expecting to enjoy Groundhog Day much at all. But, against all odds, it got better, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Groundhog Day’s visual drabness was compensated by some real heartfelt moments towards the middle to end. It definitely wasn’t as colorful as Palm Springs, but it also didn’t feature a pizza float in a swimming pool (aka peak eye candy).

One last thing: I’m not a huge Adam Samberg nor Bill Murray fan, so give me a time loop movie of the same caliber but with Sandler or La Beouf in the lead role. PLEASE.
