Cranky TV broadcaster Phil (Bill Murray) and his crew are sent to tiny Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to capture the “thrills” of its annual GROUNDHOG DAY celebration. A snowstorm strands them there overnight, and when he wakes up the next morning, Phil soon realizes that something strange is going on: It’s Groundhog Day again. As Phil repeatedly relives the tedium of the same day over and over, he gradually learns to treat people decently. He also falls for producer Rita (Andie MacDowell), working every angle to figure out how to seduce her. Each defeat means a little more information — and gets him a little closer to winning her over the next time around.
