‘Groundhog Day’ Movie Summary

Phil Connors is a smug, egotistical weatherman in Pittsburgh. He is sent to the quaint small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to report on the annual groundhog celebration with his loathsome cameraman and the new, adorable producer, Rita. Phil fights back at every turn on Groundhog Day against the simple, charming, eccentric residents he finds as worthless as last night’s cold shower.



Until he wakes up the next morning… to Groundhog Day. Again. Thinking it’s deja vu all over again, Phil sleepwalks through the day like a bad dream until he wakes up the next morning… to Groundhog Day. Again… Phil experiences the Five Stages of Grief as he goes from mildly amused at the possibilities with the women and dimwits of the town, to generally irritated about his entrapment, to maniacally manipulative of the unattainable Rita, to downright suicidal over the never-ending barrage of sweetness and goodness surrounding him until even Phil has to start searching himself to see if there is a better way to cope with his nightmare of endless Groundhog Days…until he can somehow get to Tomorrow.

  1. Interesting that Bobby and Shane seem disagree more with the 4 of you than you all seem to with each other. Coma? That’s a pretty surprising pick.

    1. Yeah, they don’t like many of our choices! …and Coma is more of a nostalgia pick for Lori I think…kind of like my Over the Edge pick a few months back.

    2. If it was a technical/critical top-100 list, I’m sure Shane and I would have more in common with the other guys/girl and their picks (like “The Godfather” and “Gone With The Wind”). :-) But I was told it’s my personal top-100 and I have too many movies that aren’t technical achievements as much as just hitting me in my sweet spot. I’m sure half my list wouldn’t be on anyone else’s favs list either. They all hated “The Last Picture Show” and didn’t like “The General” so the first 2-out-of-2 picks of mine are in the National Film Registry and not top-100 worthy I guess so we all have our preferences. At least “Groundhog Day” was universally liked by our panel so I’m 1-for-3. :-)

      1. Bobby? BobbyT2412? Bing!! Seriously, I love this movie too. I saw the live prediction by Phil on Feb 2 2019 on YouTube. The crowd loved it.
