Groundhog Day review

After creating a review for a serious classic, I’ve decided to assess a film which not everybody is familiar with, and is one of favorite comedies. Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell head the cast and are well versed with the dialogue. They have screen chemistry and have likeable characters. There might be scenes that are repetitive, all of which are necessary to prove a point to “Phil,” Murray’s character.
According to Roger Ebert: he "had initially underestimated the film's many virtues and only came to truly appreciate it through repeated viewings." It has been on many lists of funniest films (AFI ranked #34 laughs, #8 fantasy, #32 on Bravo, #27 screenplay for the Writer's Guild of America. There are laugh out loud parts that are memorable (the diner where he eats’ a truckload of food). It’s an original, philosophical, “feel good” movie for all ages. If you like a movie that relates to love, reflection, and how you spend your time alive, then this is for you.
