May 14, 2015
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 day is not a redo; it's a "one more."
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
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.

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.

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.

May 6, 2013
Groundhog Day is a good vehicle for Murray, tailored to his deadpan style, and should please fans disappointed by some the comedian's recent movies.

A movie that continually replays a single day could quickly become tedious but, strangely enough, Groundhog Day never does.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
May 6, 2013
Murray's wiseacre persona is perfect for what could be saccharine material in other hands.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 6, 2013
The movie is expertly calculated to derive maximum comic energy from Bill Murray's great, deadpan mug and his drop-dead I'm-not-impressed line readings.

Even if you applaud Bill Murray's evolution from inspired comedian to minimalist seriocomic actor, it's a relief to revisit his most varied and charming role as Phil Connors.
September 7, 2011
Bill Murray is the one veteran of the Saturday Night Live/SCTV axis who still knows how to enter into a giddy conspiracy with his audience.
