What would you do with an eternity? I'm sure most would begin much as Murray does, embracing their own hedonistic impulses, but forever is a long time, and at some point, bettering yourself becomes the only option. It doesn't hurt that it's really damn funny.

The scene with the old homeless man gets to me everytime. I love the film for the fact that if I were stuck in such a position I'd probably do things the exact same way. The movie has so many levels to it, it's quite amazing. This is one of those comfort movies for me.

Several viewings are required to appriciate just what a great film this is. Ramis delivers a lesson in how to pace a comedy. This film never wastes a second of its time on screen, and this is vital considering the films premise. Ramis & Murray do a brilliant job of convincing the audience that a massive amount of time has passed and Murrays character is slowing changing due to his experiences. Heartwarming, very funny and expertly structured.

I think this movie gets a little better every time I see it. That might be because I don't see it as often as I would like to, so when I do, it's truly a great film. It's a very sweet and funny story about a guy trapped in time and how he improves himself for himself and others. Makes you think what you would do if you had any number of tries to take on a challenge. Awesome!

For everyone who ever wanted 80s smartass-variety Bill Murray to get his comeuppance, here's your chance to watch him learn a very valuable lesson about life, love, and doing the right thing, and have your heart appropriately warmed in the process. It started as just a fun comedic fantasy, but time has slowly shaped it into a classic tale of life and romance easily on par with anything Capra ever made.

It starts out as a standard comedy, but somewhere along the way it becomes a light-hearted yet life-affirming story of redemption, and still it never loses its sense of humor. Bill Murray is at his very best in this sort of role.

One of the most hilarious movies of the 90's. Saw this Flick many times. You can owe MacDowell and Murray that Groundhog Day is more than only a tear.jerker. The gags are great, and I suppose, that everybody how saw this Movie, thought: "What would I do if I would be cursed to live the same day for the rest o my ife.

(Umpteenth viewing) From the deceptively simple premise and the effective and (as) realistic (as possible) progression to Murray's tour de force acting that shifts from the laugh-out-loud hilarious to the solemnly existential, "Groundhog Day" is perhaps, probably, almost definitely the greatest romantic comedy ever - and one of the very best comedies period. "This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."

In one of the earlier drafts of the script, the reason for being trapped in a day is explained by the curse casted by one of the ex girlfriends of Bill Murray who is dismissed out of hand by Murray in his own arrogant manner. The movie is geat by the way. The way Murray explores his options, his transformation, humor... Can't see how the movie could get any better.

The first time I saw this, I was merely entertained. The film doesn't explicitly give you a sense of the time that passed, but Harold Ramis has stated that Murray was intended to relive that day 30-40 YEARS! Re-watching it again in this context adds so much more meaning to the film, and for me, it becomes one of the most re-playable movies because of its incredible message of living life to the fullest. It has the perfect mix of comedy and drama, ingeniously balanced by Bill Murray.

After a slow start the humour soon shines through, making for an enjoyable viewing. The incomprehensibility of the situation leads to some great scenes, and I'm glad to say that the pacing is spot on. Although it may seem to run slightly slowly, it runs consistently throughout and portrays the gradual transformation of Murray's character very well indeed. Murray also goes through various stages as he figures out his predicament, eventually growing in character from the experience.

One of my very favorite comedies. It's hilarious, touching and infinitely re-watchable. The acting is good all around, and there are a lot of characters who make the most out of their small roles (notably Elliott and Tobolowski). The premise is amazing and is deeper than most people give it credit for. Ramis did a great job putting as much into each scene as he could, and making reliving a day over and over again interesting and entertaining at all times.

One of the best movies of all time. Explores multiple theories of moral philosophy, whether it was intended or not. Murray's finest performance (even considering his work with Wes Anderson). And did I mention it's consistently hilarious with multiple memorable lines. And that the romance is plausible and works. And that it may teach you something about life. What a triumph.

Possibly most perfect romcom ever. Aptly = Incredibly re-watchable. BM captures every different nuance, tick & shade as he frantically tries all different approachs he can to living out the same scenarios over & over. Is screamingly funny but also a truly marvellous & under-lauded acting performance. Plot = great & hints at deep philosophical notions beneath. Even the, 4 me, usually bland & meh Andy McD is warm, delightful & believable as focus of Bill's obsession. Perfection?

Bill Murray's greatest film, and a wonderful comedy with some actual heart in it. The one important message that I've taken from the film is how any day can either be the best or the worst day of your life - it's all perspective, and it's all what you choose to do to make your day the best it can be.

What's good about this film is that the smooth transition between complete asshole and really nice guy is the comedy on either side.

This movie is pure genius, it has a brilliant idea, to begin with, and they created a very quirky setting to "deploy" the idea, which worked wonderfully. Murray does wonders with the emotional swings of his character; around the midway, it goes in the direction of a more conventional romantic comedy but then it takes another nice, sharp turn and becomes quite philosophical. I would love to see a horror movie version, where characters wake up to the same setting, getting killed, and get wiser

It's time to elevate this classic to the "great" category. Superb comedy manages to be equal parts hilarious and touching, while intelligently digging in to questions of humanity and existence. Murray gives the performance of an admirable career and is perfectly cast; MacDowell is fine as his love interest and the supporting cast is uniformly filled with excellent performances and cameos; special mention *must* go to Tobolowsky. BING! A pinnacle for both Murray and director Ramis.

There also an awful lot done with the general Sisyphean nature of the premise and a lot of ups and downs as Murray attempts a variety of things to break out of his rut. I enjoyed nearly all of them. It really takes something special to blend all those disparate thoughts and feelings about how to live life and make them cohere into something so complete while avoiding the corniness that would generally accompany it. Murray probably deserves a lot of the credit for that. Great and darkly funny.

This film is a wonderful palette of what a random day in a human life can be, through pettiness, anger, indulgence, depression, healing, kindness, and transcendence. Plus, it's that rarity in the modern age, a romantic comedy that's good at the romance *and* at the comedy - and how can you not love a movie that treats Pittsburgh as the glamorous big city?

Watching this after Harold's death is almost too devastating to accomplish. This, along with many other Harold Ramis projects, is one I loved when I was younger but quickly fell out of my rewatch lineup. Now, as an 18 year old kid with a sore wound from the passing of one my first filmmaking idols, it takes on a new meaning. Groundhog Day is a funny, devastating movie that will force you to look inward like no other movie can. Hey, provoking a thought? Isn't that what we're here for?

All around good movie, and the premise intrigues me to no end. Such an iconic movie that you can use the title as a reference in everyday conversation and people will know what you are talking about.

Probably one of my favorite movies. Murray is hilarious as usual but manages to show some more range here in the second half. I personally love what this movie has to say about how every day can feel exactly the same, and what we would likely do if we could live without consequence. It’s portrayal of the human condition is beautiful, dark, depressing, sometimes funny, and very relatable. I love Groundhog Day.

This film inspires repeated viewing ( I'm not trying to be funny). It's twisted yet somehow absolutely right that one of the most thought-provoking films of the 1990's is a comedy starring Bill "Meatballs" Murray, Andie "Glenn Close dubbed my voice in Tarzan" McDowall and Chris "Cabin Boy" Elliot, let alone written and directed by Harold "Floyd Camembert" Ramis. This film improves with every passing year.

Pushing 20 years old now but if anything I appreciate this more than I did on its release. Original story, well-structured, and a perfect lead in Murray. Both amusing yet thought-provoking too. MacDowell's uninspiring love interest is one disappointing negative.
