Groundhog Day
Director: Harold Ramis
Cast: Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott, Stephen Tobolowsky, Brian Doyle-Murray, Marita Geraghty, Angela Paton, Rick Ducommun, Rick Overton, Robin Duke

Bill Murray gives one of his finest performances as Phil Connors, a smug and cynical TV weatherman who finds himself trapped in a time loop and forced to relive the same day—Groundhog Day—over and over again in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. This brilliant and endlessly inventive dark comedy was scripted by Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis, and it helped to launch an entire sub-genre of movies. Phil's journey is occasionally dark and consistently hilarious. As he experiences the repetition, he undergoes a transformative journey from selfishness to selflessness.
