Groundhog Day Reviews

I find it a masterpiece of comedic timing that ultimately starts with the deceptively brilliant script from Danny Rubin.

On top of the time travel elements, Groundhog Day is also a hilarious comedy and beautiful romance. While we get to know Phil throughout the film, you also get to know Rita and what a complex person she is...

One of those rare cinematic occasions when extreme repetition only gets funnier.

The movie would be nothing without Murray's superb performance... Keep an eye on how his character develops in depth and self-awareness as he desperately looks for a way out of the rut.

A great comedy with a solid message that doesn't hinder the delivery of the comedy.

Re-watching Groundhog Day yet again was pretty enlightening, actually!

Cult leader Keith Ranieri was my grade school classmate. What do we call his current prison situation? We call it "Groundhog day." Perhaps millennials aren't familiar with the facts about when and how this term became part of America's cultural lexicon...

It would be impossible to understand the movie without that casual and inevitable tone delivered by Ramis and Murray. [Full Review in Spanish]

Murray's performance doesn't only elevate the film to a completely different level but also elevates the work being put in by the rest of the cast.

With his shifts from smugness to weirdness to some kind of local heroism, Murray controls the picture throughout. But Ramis works ably with his oddly assorted supporting cast.

Are we all just wasting time squandering eternity? The film doesn't make this accusation lightly. And it takes an outrageous concept, a big premise with a science-fiction spin, to level the idea in terms we accept and understand.

Ramis and Murray achieve a harmony of wit and wisdom that works so effortlessly on you, on us all, the phrase "Groundhog Day" in American vernacular has become a synonym for dj vu.

Murray, more often than not, is pretty unbearable; but here, playing a man who is unbearable, Murray begins convincingly, amusingly, and gets even more amusing as he metamorphoses.

Harold Ramis's direction is nothing special, yet there is a beautiful, lip-smacking efficiency in the way that a great idea is touched off and followed to its conclusion.

When it comes to existential drama comedies about self realizations in a fantastic setting, [it] is right up there with films like "Her" and "Eternal Sunshine."

...the film's forgettable, padded-out nature confirms its place as a promising yet disposable high-concept comedy.

While Murray's deadpan putdowns and dry dismissals of provincial peccadilloes are the comic highlights, Groundhog Day is no supercilious rip of small-town U.S.A.

Precise and smart and fussed over without feeling fussy.
