This recut of Groundhog Day from Andie MacDowell's perspective is weird as hell

Groundhog Day is one of the best comedies ever made, a clever, heartfelt romance with a surprisingly robust philosophical backbone. Harold Ramis and Bill Murray’s movie tells the story of a weatherman, Phil Connors, who, while covering the fabled Punxsutawney groundhog, relives the same day over and over again until…

Legends Of Tomorrow channels “Hedgehog Day” for an excellent time loop story

A

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow knows that it’s kind of hacky to do a Groundhog Day-inspired time loop episode, but as Nate tells Zari, it all comes down to execution. And this episode is damn good.

Don’t get trapped in the loop of Before I Fall, a mopey Groundhog Day for teens

C-

It’s not déjà vu. You have seen this movie before. Once upon a time, it went by the name Groundhog Day and starred Bill Murray as a weatherman stuck repeating the same day over and over and over again. It had jokes. Really good ones. You have probably seen this movie again since. Three years ago, it featured Tom…

This byzantine fan edit syncs up Groundhog Day’s repeated scenes

Harold Ramis and Bill Murray’s 1993 comedy Groundhog Day has by this point transcended mere cinema, having been embraced by spiritual types for its moral absolution and even folded into the lexicon—to say something feels like “Groundhog Day” is to imply you’re caught in an endless cycle. It makes sense, as its story…
