Groundhog Day

How many times have you seen the movie, Groundhog Day? And, why do you watch it so many times? Perhaps it's just something to do. Maybe you like snow. Maybe you secretly lust after Ned Ryerson. Or, maybe, just maybe, you watch it hoping to find answers to the universe's bigger questions. Turns out they might be there. I know I'll never see it the same after reading this timeline of the movie's number of groundhog days and the interesting comments thereafter. I definitely have a new appreciation for the movie.

Ground Hog Day was one of those movies I didn't like when it came out. But after seeing it about a dozen times I actually like it.

Didn't realize how much time in theory that could of happened during the movie. I would be flippin' crazy towards the end too if I was Bill Murray's character.

Nice movie.

Ebert considers it a "great" movie and I do, too. One of my favorites. (Because it's good, not because I secretly lust after Rita.)

I've seen it two or three times. I never once thought of how many times the day had to replay for the Murray character to acquire the skills that he did.

Until five years ago I'd given little thought to this movie until it was part of a business ethics class (in parallel with Run Lola Run) as an extension of ideas from other places. I didn't realize how similar the two movies are to one another until I watched both during the same week.
