Groundhog Day (1993)

groundhogBy Scott Goldfine

Bill Murray stars as an egotistical, sarcastic weatherman who keeps reliving the same day over again in this agreeable comedy. Murray learns to manipulate the situation to his selfish advantage, but it eventually wears thin. Grief-stricken, he’s forced to look inward in order to move forward.

Also starring Andie McDowell, this Harold Ramis-directed film is similar to Murray’s “Scrooged,” only much more pleasant. Also stars Chris Elliott. Rated PG.

GRADE: B+
