One of my Mom's Favorite Movies

Groundhog Day

Have you seen this movie? You need to. It's brilliant. It's funny. It's sheer genius. Go see it. Netflix it right now. Pronto.

Don't worry, my blog will still be here when you get back.

Well, anyway, if you can believe it, this movie came out in 1993. It stars Andie MacDowell and Bill Murray, and was written and directed by Ghostbusters co-star Harold Ramis (Egon,) who consequently wrote Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Stripes, Bedazzled, Analyze That, Year One, etc. as well.

Phil, (Murray,) is a grumpy weather man who goes to a small town on Groundhog Day. He ends up re-living the day over and over, just like Buffy, Xena and Molder did.

My mom has good tastes in movies. For a complete list of my mom's favorite movies, click here. (Okay, those aren't technically MY mom's favorite movies, but what are you gonna do?)
