All Critics (83) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (80) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

    January 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 2, 2015 | Full Review…
  • 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 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A movie that continually replays a single day could quickly become tedious but, strangely enough, Groundhog Day never does.

Audience Reviews for Groundhog Day

  • Jan 03, 2018
    With a great balance between devilish glee and heartfelt sincerity from Bill Murray, Groundhog Day offers an easily digestible tale that creates a charm of its own, even if some of the middle section of the story isn't the most beliveable or understandable.

    Only Bill Murray could've handled the mad concept of Groundhog Day as well as he did, the brilliant concept and theories behind the film drive the force of the picture. Murray's dry, sarcastic wit and deadpan delivery perfectly counteract the Punxsatawney residents who flit with small-town comedic absent-mindedness. Andie MacDowell meanwhile perfectly counteracts Murray's dryness with warming optimism and brilliant capabilities in her delivery. The soundtrack is also great, but really makes me never want to hear "I Got You, Babe" ever again. The film serves as a great satire of the 9 to 5 grind and a wanting to escape from the grind of working life. A film to watch again and again and again and again and again...

    Bill Murray delivers comic perfection, but it's the tightrope between pathos and existentialism that the screenplay manages to walk that is most engaging about this classic.

    I've finally seen it. The incredible amount of references I've heard to this movie for decades after its release testify to its delightful originality and earn it obvious classic status.
