This review is from: Groundhog Day (Collector's Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
This film can be best described as Family man meets (pursuing his career, to find out he really misses loved ones) Ghostbusters (comical ghost chasing adventure film). Which is perhaps why this is one of the best films I have seen, as it is very funny and a movie which can make light of any situation which makes this movie a worthwhile purchase if you like humour and romance mixed into one.
If you liked Ghostbusters then you will love this, Bill Murray returns in this film as a weather broadcaster and has much the same attitude as in Ghostbusters.
The film is also directed by Harold Ramis, who if you do not know as the director of Ghostbusters then will be more familiar as the Ghostbusters Igon.
The story is about a weather broadcaster (Bill Murray) who has to go to the annual ground hog event, which he hates and has to do every year. However this year is different to all of the rest, as he keeps on reliving the same day with comical, romantic and heroic results.
However if you did not like the comical way of which Bill Murray was associated in Ghostbusters then this film is not for you.
This is a must see film, a classic, in which Bill Murray must find his true self before being able to continue with his life. However whether it is a worthwhile DVD has yet to be seen, as there are no extra features, which give DVD’s in my opinion the added value that you don’t get from tapes.
