Groundhog Day (1993)

MPW-25048

A weatherman finds himself inexplicably living the same day over and over again. (IMDb)
Starts off as a funny (thanks to Murray’s signature dry wit) but standard comedy as the characters are introduced (Larry is a classic comic sidekick) and the premise is milked for the easy surface-y/hedonistic humour. But as the day continues to repeat itself (the repeated settings alternate nicely) it takes on surprising dramatic weight as Phil moves through different stages of dealing with his (smartly unexplained) predicament (see his climactic interaction with the homeless man).
7.5/10 (Really Good)
