Groundhog Day asks the question, what if your were trapped in today? Bill Murray plays one serious jerk of a weatherman that really doesn’t have any friends. He visits a small town with camera crew to cover the Ground Hog day festivities only to find that he’s trapped to relive the very same day over and over again. He does everything from robbing banks, to seducing local women and even suicide in desperation to survive his boredom. He even fails repeatedly to seduce his new producer.
It’s a lovely and funny film that entertains you while giving you food for thought on how to make the best out of any given day. Of course, putting this in practice is a whole other story but I’m sure a lot of us have daydreamed about the possibility of doing over a period in our lives.
