A weatherman doing a report on Punxsutawney Phil relives the day over and over again. Starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, and Chris Elliott.
This is a quintessential suspension of disbelief film. The reason the weatherman relives the day over and over again is never explained. Although, that doesn’t detract from film. It’s a great comedy as he learns each day what to do and what not to do to make use of the day until he gets it right. He learns to change his outlook on life and wins the woman he loves. The cast is brilliant. The filmmakers take an ordinary day, and when on repeat, you discover all the things that make each day special. It’s a brilliant mixture of comedy, plot, and characters. This film is a legend, and it needs to be watched; it’s worth it.
