Scott Davis (Hey You Guys) Amon Warmann (Empire Magazine) join Flixwatcher to review Scott’s choice Groundhog Day.

Groundhog Day is a 1993 romantic comedy starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, co-written and directed by Harold Ramis. Murray plays Phil Connor, a TV weatherman sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event who for reasons unknown ends up living the same day over and over again until he gets the day right. Hard to believe now but when it was released Groundhog Day, despite favorable reviews wasn’t a hit. It wasn’t until the late 90s and Murray finding his groove with Wes Anderson that Groundhog Day finally found the audience it rightly deserves. So iconic it coined the phase for we now use to describe a reoccurring situation.   Scores

[supsystic-tables id=158] Any worries you might have about Groundhog Day not having aged well are unwarranted - it’s still hilarious, amazingly warm-hearted and a little bit dark around the edges. Scoring very highly across all Flixwatcher categories - including perfect fives in recommendability and even first time watcher Amon enjoyed it enough to give it a high repeat viewing. Losing only a couple of points Groundhog Day scores a very high 4.71 overall and takes 3rd place in the Flixwatcher rankings. What do you guys think? Have you seen Groundhog Day? What did you think?
