"It's Groundhog Day! Again......",
This review is from: Groundhog Day [DVD]  (DVD)Every now and again you see a movie that acts as the perfect vehicle for an actor. In Groundhog Day we see Bill Murray's. The movie is replete with fine performances from the man ably supported by the likes of Chris Elliott and Andie Macdowell, but the film is Bill's and his alone.
The story is basically what would you do if you could repeat the same day over and over again? What would it do to you? Would you turn it to your advantage? Or What? Bill Murray as TV Weatherman Phil Connors is stuck in a loop forever repeating "Groundhog Day" the day he meets Punxsutawney Phil the weather sensing Groundhog. Connors goes from surprised bafflement at the repeating of the day though euphoria, depression and then sublime acceptance. The movie at no time even dares to explain why he's repeating the day, and in my opinion had it done so it would have spoiled the film - Groundhog Day focuses on Phil Connors and the story of the man.
I loved this movie and I watch it again and again and again......
