Movie Synopsis: Bill Murray plays a cynical weatherman named Phil who is tasked with covering the Groundhog Day festival in Punxatawney PA. Everything seems normal at first. He covers the festival and has to stay in the town for an extra day due to a freak snow storm. However, he wakes up the next day and its… Groundhog Day again. He goes to sleep the next night and its… groundhog day again. The day is repeating itself over and over and over and only Phil can tell.
This is Bill Murray’s best role, in my opinion. He gives some depth and character to a role that much have been quite challenging due to the flow of time in the movie (movies are usually filmed out of order). This is a classic that everyone should see more than once. It ironically stands up to multiple viewings quite well. If you haven’t seen this, shame on you! Seriously, where have you been? Not knowing about this movie means you have a hole in your soul and you never even realized it!
