A weather man is reluctantly sent to cover a story about a weather forecasting "rat" (as he calls it). This is his fourth year on the story, and he makes no effort to hide his frustration. On awaking the 'following' day he discovers that it's Groundhog Day again, and again, and again. First he uses this to his advantage, then comes the realisation that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in the same place, seeing the same people do the same thing EVERY day.Written by
The Swedish title of this movie translates as "Monday the entire week". The movie, however, does not specify what day of the week it is supposed to be, and Groundhog Day in 1993 was actually on a Tuesday. See more »
Phil's morning routine varies from Groundhog Day to Groundhog Day, e.g. the amount of time he spends in the breakfast room or talking to other guests or the proprietor, but he meets Ned at exactly the same point of time and location every time. See more »
Somebody asked me today, "Phil, if you could be anywhere in the world, where would you like to be?" And I said to him, "Prob'ly right here - Elko, Nevada, our nation's high at 79 today." Out in California, they're gonna have some warm weather tomorrow, gang wars, and some *very* overpriced real estate. Up in the Pacific Northwest, as you can see, they're gonna have some very, very tall trees.

I wasn't expecting much before I actually saw this movie, but when I did, I was actually "amazed" and "surprised" just how good this movie actually was. It was literally perfect. The plot of this movie was great. What I liked most about "Groundhog Day" was just how funny it was. This movie not only gets you laughing, but gets you laughing every time. It gets better and better. One of the best comedy movies from the nineties. Certainly, one of my favourites. The cast was good, and I don't think anyone else could've played it any better. The setting for this movie was wonderful to say the least. I really like the title of this movie: Groundhog Day. Not only that, but it's also a movie you could watch all-day everyday too, so it's not just a "Groundhog Day", if you know what I mean. That's what I find amazing! Gets more better the second and third time you watch it too. Very good movie to own on video. One of the finest comedy movies available.
