Groundhog Day


(out of 5)

One of the most wonderful romantic comedies of the decade.   plays a rude, cynical weatherman who is given the dull assignment of travelling to a nearby small town and reporting on the groundhog day festivity. He meets the people, films the little critter running back into his hole, tries to romance the segment producer () and then returns to his hotel for a good night’s rest. What he gets the next morning, however, is not anything new at all but the same day repeated. The next day it continues, and for months on end Murray is forced to live through the exact same day without there ever being an end in sight. Of course this means he gets to spend more time with his sweetheart, but he can never get anywhere with her because the next morning they’re back at square one. The intelligent screenplay never lets the movie feel like a gimmick, and the more charming elements are at full force without ever becoming too saccharine.
