Groundhog Day 1993

Bill Murray plays cynical TV weatherman Phil Conners who is wasting his talent on a bunch of “hicks” in the town of Punxsutawney to celebrate Groundhog Day and whether or not we will have 6 more weeks of winter. Then Conners finds himself in a nightmare of having to relive the same day over and over again seemingly stuck in some strange type of time warp. Murray is perfect as the annoyed by everything weatherman who ultimately finds a key to unlock his nightmare of reliving the same day.
