A memorable comedy for the ages, Groundhog Day digs deeper than most magic-realist comedies... [Blu-ray]

Comic perfection.

Considering that none of the characters is fresh or interesting, it's a commendable achievement that the quality of the storytelling alone keeps the movie watchable and likable.

[A] great American comedy.

[Murray] carries Groundhog Day with his uniquely frittery nonchalance and makes the movie a comic time warp anyone should be happy to get stuck in.

An immensely enjoyable fable...

October 5, 2008
Ramis' direction is often too cool and restrained. He wisely avoids playing into the tale's underlying sentimentality.
October 5, 2008
As well as a perfect star vehicle, the film is a brilliant analysis of the implications of the film's simple conceit.
January 29, 2008
The film endures largely because of the appeal of both its story line and the cast.

The movie deserves its fans, earns our respect, delivers richly on its initial promises if not always on its greater ones, and rewards multiple viewings, even as it carries a built-in joke about the typical shelf-life of repeated experience.

Since arriving as a mild success in 1993, Groundhog Day has gradually achieved the status of beloved. The American Film Institute rates it No.34 on its list of all-time funniest movies, and it's a story that bears frequent repeat viewings.
February 9, 2006
Ramis directs this surreal suburban fantasy with an admirably light touch, revelling in its absurd repetitions, surprising us with narrative ellipses, and allowing Murray ample space to indulge his special mix of sarcasm and smarm.
October 25, 2005
This is a beautiful film. On the surface, a rolling ball, a silly comedy, a farce even. But a closer look, a closer look, reveals a beauty easily not seen.

A marginal success, but it could have been a complete one if the people behind the camera did as good a job as those in front of it.

This is one of the best comedies I have ever seen.

January 30, 2003
Ramis respects his audience's intelligence every step of the way. No plot point is overexplained, and when the film touches on the spiritual, it becomes neither soppy nor dogmatic.
