Phil: “Do you ever have déjà vu, Mrs. Lancaster?”
Mrs. Lancaster: “I don’t think so, but I could check with the kitchen.”

“Groundhog Day” released on this day February 12th 1993, making the film 25 years old as of today.

The story centers on a weatherman (Oscar nominee Bill Murray) who finds himself reliving the same titular day over and over again.

Fun fact; the movie was such a success that it earned a spot in the book of “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die”, as well as won a BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay – Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis.

Some of the film’s highlights include the plot, characters, performances, humor, and moments of sweetness.

Recommended to fans of the comedy, romance, and fantasy genre, as well as those who like Bill Murray.
