Groundhog Day

It is becoming clearer and clearer that Groundhog Day (1993), directed by Harold Ramis, is one of the masterpieces of 1990s Hollywood cinema. One of the first films to use a science-fiction premise as the basis for romantic comedy, it tells the story of a splenetic TV weatherman, Phil Connors (Bill Murray at his disreputable best), who finds himself indefinitely repeating ...more

Re-watching Groundhog Day has its ironic pleasures, as does reading about someone else re-watching it. Re-reading about the re-takes they did is like a hall of ironic mirrors which glitter like the basilisk stare of Bill Murray from his window on the 5,789th Groundhog Day and it's still a winter wonderland.

Groundhog Day is the best comedy of the last 30 years, I think. Only Being John Malkevich comes close. The suicides sequence is pure genius.

I admit that Andeeeee McDowell is beyond irritatin

February 2nd came and went; I can breathe a sigh of relief. It is February 3rd as I write this, and I am not in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, but rather a couple of hours away in State College. Moreover, I have every reason to believe that tomorrow will be February 4th for me. Anyone who has seen Harold Ramis's Groundhog Day (1993) will at once understand these references. In Groundhog Day, a book that is part of the British Film Institute Press's Modern Classics series, Ryan Gilbey provides a fin ...more

this is one of my favorite films. this is why. i just read this again today, laughing in recollection. can i make this a six star rating? here in the northern hemisphere i think we should celebrate february 2. every year. and then again. this little bfi book is a great reminder of how sometimes the stars and planets align... and the hollywood dream factory earns its name. this book notes how each day phil connors lives is the same then different, each day cut into significant moments, then moves ...more

Un análisis cinematográfico en profuncidad de "El día de la marmota"( Groundhog Day), traducida al español como "Atrapado en el tiempo". A lo largo de las páginas de este libro vamos viendo la película narrada escena a escena mientras el autor nos cuenta muchas similitudes e influencias con otras películas y libros, al tiempo que nos revela detalles que pueden ser o no buscados por el director (las rayas del papel pintado del comedor son verticales, sugiriendo los barrotes de una celta, Phil Con ...more

Clever explication of Ramis's great film. A film that just keeps increasing in stature as the years go by.

I just add this so people will know that Groundhog Day is one of the greatest films of all time.

Don't let the title fool you. This isn't one of those wacky family travel movies.
