Woohoo Billy! I always love February -- especially since I get to watch Groundhog Day again!



E.C. Henry


In a way I feel like I'm living out the plot of "Groundhog Day" JUST by reading this post of yours. What is the 3 or 4th straight year you've run this post right before the actual Groundhog Day?

Been years since I've seen the "Groundhog Day" movie. But now with this post, I think I'll try to rent it the next time at Blockbusters. It is one of the better rom-coms of all-time.

And the story of Danny being flown out to Punxsutawney with the star of the movie he penned is like a writer's fairytale. THAT'S a very cool worth re-telling.

Haven't I read this post before? This feels like ground hog day all over again...


The next time someone watches this movie, try to get some idea of how long Murray is stuck. There are a couple of references that give you the idea it's a very long time - years.


I've always wanted to watch this movie with a counter and click it every time Bill Murray wakes up on Feb 2. Or dies on Feb 2. With all those montages, how many actual years pass?

I loved the anecdote. Everyone who's crazy enough to dedicate themselves to their writing needs one or two people in their lives to shout "Are you nuts?"


One of my favorite romantic comedies. I agree with you, Groundhog's Day is a movie you can watch over and over again. Which is ironic :)


Debbie: Hugs back!

EC: Wouldn't that be a great plane ride to take? If Bill Murray calls me, I won't have to discuss it with my wife...

JamminGirl: Yeah, it's like deja vu all over again.

Patrick: According to screenwriter Danny Rubin, in his first drafts, Phil went through the day for centuries.

Sarah: As I was saying (to Patrick) - subsequent drafts made Phil's journey take at least decades (say, "a lifetime") - while the finished film seems deliberately ambiguous about "actual time." And yes - Nuts do need "nut-criers," absolutely.

Ben: And over and over and over and over...
