Groundhog Day

Release: February 12, 1993

GROUNDHOG DAY is an immensely enjoyable fable of a confirmed cynic who finds himself stuck in the same 24-hour time frame, over and over again, and the life lessons he manages to learn from it. Bill Murray stars as Phil, a TV weatherman sent to Punxsutawney, PA, to cover the Groundhog Day festival. A grinch who disdains all things provincial, Phil is predictably peeved when a blizzard forces him, his producer Rita (Andie MacDowell) and cameraman Larry (Chris Elliott) to spend a second night in the picture-postcard town. Peeved doesn't even begin to approach how he feels next morning, when he wakes up and discovers that it's Groundhog Day--again. Stuck in a time loop, Phil seems doomed to spend the rest of his life repeating the same day over and over. Whatever he does--from getting thrown in jail to committing several varieties of suicide--he invariably wakes up at 6:00 the next morning in his guest-house bed, with "I Got You, Babe" blaring from his radio alarm. What do you do when you're sentenced to re-live one day in your life for eternity? Phil starts out trivial (he memorizes all the answers to "Jeopardy"); then decides to better himself (piano lessons); and finally searches for true love, coming up with some ingenious ways of wooing Rita in less than 24 hours. (However far he gets each day, he's always back to square one in the morning.)

Phil: "This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. (raises his voice) What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. (turns to the crowd) You’re hypocrites, all of you!"

Phil: "Once again the eyes of the nation have turned here to this.. [silly voice] tiny village in Western Pennsylvania, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah... [seriously] There is no way that this winter... is ever going to end, as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don’t see any other way out. He’s gotta be stopped, and I have to stop him."
