Movie Quote #20: “Groundhog Day”

“Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t one yesterday.”

Bill Murray’s character (Phil Connors, a weatherman) in Groundhog Day (1993) makes this statement while trapped in a 24-hour cycle.  He takes advantage of this unusual situation. Makes you stop and wonder. What if this were possible? What would we do to right wrongs we’ve committed? Or maybe do just the opposite? Who knows how a person will act?

When I first watched this movie, I thought to myself: “This is weird! What a crazy idea for a movie!” But slowly it began to make sense. You’ve got to watch it several times to grasp the concept the director Harold Ramis was getting across to the audience.

It is a comedy and a fine one at that. The theme of time and how humans deal with it, never tires. ~~LMMolina
