Two of my favorite movies revolve around holidays. Die Hard at Christmas time and yes, Die Hard is a Christmas movie. The other movie is a Bill Murray classic, Groundhog Day.
If you don’t know what Groundhog Day is about here is the summary of the movie from IMDB.com:
A weather man is reluctantly sent to cover a story about a weather forecasting “rat” (as he calls it). This is his fourth year on the story, and he makes no effort to hide his frustration. On awaking the ‘following’ day he discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and again, and again. First he uses this to his advantage, then comes the realization that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in the same place, seeing the same people do the same thing EVERY day.
According to Director Harold Ramis, on the Groundhog Day DVD commentary, Bill Murray spent 10 years trapped in his own little corner of hell… Punxsutawney.
I have gathered up my favorite scenes from the movie for you to enjoy on this Ground Hog Day.
Have you noticed how Bill Murray is funnier when he has a small woodland creautre for a sidekick?
