    This movie has all the qualities necessary to be a crowd-pleaser: likable characters, charismatic performers, a strong, capably-executed premise, and lots of laughs.
  2. 90
    A hilarious and unexpectedly profound comedy.
  3. 90
    For once, the audience isn't forced to surrender its intelligence (or its healthy cynicism) to embrace the film's sunny resolution.

    Groundhog Day is a sharp, witty satire on the facts of life and how the passing of time is critically important for life to go on. This movieGroundhog Day is a sharp, witty satire on the facts of life and how the passing of time is critically important for life to go on. This movie could've been undermined very easily with the wrong screenplay, but it gets it almost perfectly right. Full Review »

    Irony, at it's truest!

    A movie that repeats itself, over and over again, and which I CAN WATCH over and over again more than any other and love every minute... well, if not irony, then what -- awesomely funny at least!

    This movie is COMEDIC GOLD!

    I LUV LUV LUV this flik above all other comedies... Could it be the Franco-American Spaghetti phenomenon? Perhaps... I'll admit that could be part of it.

    Huh, you don't know about that? Well, when I was a kid liked FAS. If I had FAS as an adult, I'd no doubt hate it, but... well... it's too late... I love it, story over--I LUV LUV LUV'd it, as a child, and still do.

    Anyway, perhaps the magic this movie has is bound to time and age, but whatever, it will ALWAYS hold a warm place inside me. How many fliks do that?


    Whatever, I HEREBY DECLARE THIS FLIK COMEDY GOLD -- A NATIONAL TREASURE!!!


    It is to me, no other will be declared as such--my review, my hyperbole.
