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]
June 5, 2018
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.
June 5, 2018
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.
February 1, 2018
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."
February 3, 2015
...the film's forgettable, padded-out nature confirms its place as a promising yet disposable high-concept comedy.

The day is not a redo; it's a "one more."
February 2, 2015
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.
June 12, 2014
Precise and smart and fussed over without feeling fussy.
March 1, 2014
The legacy film of director Harold Ramis.
February 3, 2014
Director Harold Ramis uses every cinematic trick in the book to keep what is essentially a one-gag movie brimming with life and fresh ideas.
February 3, 2014
Groundhog Day is surprisingly inventive.
May 6, 2013
MacDowell was never more convincing and Chris Elliott is a dry delight as her lens-man. Murray and movie, meanwhile, are a mutual godsend: Groundhog Day rescued his career from calcifying in self-caricature.
May 6, 2013
Groundhog Day may not be the funniest collaboration between Bill Murray and director Harold Ramis... Yet this gentle, small-scale effort is easily the most endearing film of both men's careers, a sweet and amusing surprise package.
May 6, 2013
Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell have a ball with the main roles.
May 6, 2013
Murray hasn't made a comedy this winningly dumb and smart and -- yes -- sweet in a long time. If, indeed, he ever has.
