Existing is not living. And kindness is a value that every single one of us should live by. These are what this well-acted, well-directed and well-written film is all about...

Phil learned them the hard way. We shouldn't.

Bill Murray's comedic performance in "Groundhog Day" seems to come so effortlessly as he is stuck reliving the same dreadful day over and over again in this small, sweet gem of a film.

Bill Murray shines as he should inside Harold Ramis direction on a completely original and thought-provoking comedy that, although odd, it provides one of cinema‚(TM)s common subjects to explore, as well as an iconic and memorable plot that granted the actor one of his all times favorite roles among fans, nevertheless the clever writing and flow throughout every possible option available for our character to explore, something a little bit thrown away by the predictable and cheesy conclusion

Doesn't everybody know this one? Bill Murray plays a generally bitter, unpleasant weatherman who turns on the charm while the cameras roll but tumbles backward into mean, icy sarcasm just as soon as he's out of the frame. Forced to relive the same day on an endless loop, a much-loathed Groundhog's Day on-location report, he slowly works through his issues, loses the chip on his shoulder, finds personal fulfillment and learns how to share a meaningful moment. It's a simple idea, thoughtfully explored, that doesn't run short on heart, ideas or surprises.

Murray is perfect in the role, able to convincingly evolve from contemptible jerk to charismatic goofball, but it's the in-between steps that really make his journey remarkable. His growth doesn't come without pains and struggles, missteps and setbacks, and we share his agony over those tough lessons and bitter disappointments. By the time his sentence in that circular purgatory is at an end, he's hit rock bottom, explored his darkest impulses, reached out for salvation, failed, improved and found peace within himself.

Andie MacDowell is adorable as Murray's co-star, the ever-optimistic, spritely target of our affections, while director Harold Ramis gives the whole package a warm, friendly sensibility that keeps things on the up-and-up and still allows some wickedly dark material to sneak through. A fantastic, character-driven comedy with laughs to spare and sweet, enduring lessons to teach. Worthy of annual viewings.

The great idea behind it, the comedy, the best Murray, the meaning of it all... so many reasons to love this movie! And just like in "Groundhog Day" I'd watch it over and over and over again.

Pretty good but sometimes the plot gets old and sometimes it's not entertaining to see thing repeated over and over with slight changes

Funny movie about deja vu with Bill Murray, what's not to love?

This movie was tough for me to rate. At some points in the movie I was laughing from Murray's sarcastic jokes and the next I was cringing at something he did. I did enjoy the movie though especially when watching it on groundhog day.

There was no yesterday and no tomorrow. Everything is the same or is it what we really feel; get up in the morning, go through the same activities, go to school, go to campus, go to work, is everything just the same yet? "Groundhog Day" is a simple film but it's more than that. It's a real meaning of life, a philosophical meaning about life itself. This film has such melancholy moments; sometimes you laugh, you cry, you happy, and you feel uneasy. However, Bill Murray's character as Phil makes the film uncomplimentary from the comedy itself. Bill Murray's performance as the man who lives through the same day over and over again is beyond acting in acting. He acted but acted again. He never let go of his character regardless of the various situations he lived. He is a good and bad character. At the end of the movie, we can finally hear "Almost Like Being in Love" by Nat 'King' Cole instead of "I Got You Babe."
