GROUNDHOG DAY (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Groundhog Day—terrific Bill Murray comedy—has a unique storyline that provides a sweet message that works enough under the radar that it does not interfere with the entertainment value of its story. Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliot work very well as supporting cast for Bill Murray.

Storyline

A weatherman gets entrapped in a 24-hour time loop that does not allow him to escape the same day, place, and time when he awakes every morning.

Additional Thanks

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film works on an adult level with just the right amount of comedic edge to set the tone for an enjoyable watch.
