Groundhog Day

( 17 )

Overview

Bill Murray plays Phil, a TV weatherman working for a local station in Pennsylvania but convinced that national news stardom is in his grasp. Phil displays a charm and wit on camera that evaporates the moment the red light goes off; he is bitter, appallingly self-centered, and treats his co-workers with contempt, especially his producer Rita Andie MacDowell and cameraman Larry Chris Elliot. On February 2, 1992, Phil, Rita, and Larry are sent on an assignment that Phil especially loathes: the annual Groundhog Day ...

Overview

Bill Murray plays Phil, a TV weatherman working for a local station in Pennsylvania but convinced that national news stardom is in his grasp. Phil displays a charm and wit on camera that evaporates the moment the red light goes off; he is bitter, appallingly self-centered, and treats his co-workers with contempt, especially his producer Rita Andie MacDowell and cameraman Larry Chris Elliot. On February 2, 1992, Phil, Rita, and Larry are sent on an assignment that Phil especially loathes: the annual Groundhog Day festivities in Punxsutawney, PA, where the citizens await the appearance of Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog who will supposedly determine the length of winter by his ability to see his own shadow. Phil is eager to beat a hasty retreat, but when a freak snowstorm strands him in Punxsutawney, he wakes up the next morning with the strangest sense of déjà vu: he seems to be living the same day over again. The next morning it happens again, and then again. Soon, no matter what he does, he's stuck in February 2, 1992; not imprisonment nor attempted suicide nor kidnapping the groundhog gets him out of the loop. But the more Phil relives the same day, the more he's forced to look at other people's lives, and something unusual happens: he begins to care about others. He starts to respect people, he tries to save the life of a homeless man, and he discovers that he's falling in love with Rita and therefore wants to be someone that she could love in return.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
A charming and well-crafted comedy, Groundhog Day is that rare Bill Murray vehicle in which the material (and its execution) are every bit as good as the star's performance. Murray gives a top-shelf performance that covers a surprisingly broad emotional spectrum, and Andie MacDowell is luminous as Rita. Danny Rubin's screenplay and Harold Ramis's direction take a frankly unbelievable situation and treat it with enough realism to allow the audience to suspend disbelief; although the almost science-fiction premise resembles that of such serious experimental movies as Last Year at Marienbad (1961) and La jetée (1962), Groundhog Day grounds its high concept in romantic comedy, in the classic journey of a grump reformed, and in the details of ordinary life. The result is one of the richest and most dimensional comedies of the 1990s.

    I love this movie.

    This movie is great. I love watching Phil Connors get more and more frustrated and despondent as each day starts over again.His scenes with Ned Ryerson (BING!) are hilarious. This movie is great.

    I have to buy the DVD so I don't watch it on TV all the time

    I love movies that say you can be something more than you are. This is one of my favorite movies. Every single time its on TV I watch it again (and again, and again). Time to by the DVD so I can watch it whenever I want to.

    Genius!

    ''Groundhog Day'' is one of my top 5 movie picks. It's simple, profound, flawless. My prediction: It will sleep, only to be discovered some day as did another all-time great movie ''It's A Wonderful Life''.

    Best Movie of All TIME

    Grounhog Day is definately the best movie of all time. Bill Murray is unbelievable playing Phil the weatherman. I've seen the movie over a hundred times, and every time I laugh at something I didnt laught at before. The special edition is great too. Harold Ramis does a great job with his commentary. Near the end, he reveals that now that he's getting older, he cries at almost every movie. THis led him to admit that he cried at the end of X-Men. Anyway, i highly recommend buying this fantastic movie.
