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

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.

The day is not a redo; it's a "one more."

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.

Ramis has an intriguing premise taken just about as far as it could be taken. It is pleasant but not particularly deep.

Precise and smart and fussed over without feeling fussy.

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.

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."

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.
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.
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.
