Groundhog Day Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Groundhog Day turns 30 years old this month.

Bill Murray in Groundhog Day

With Groundhog Day today, we revisit the Bill Muray comedy, which will celebrate its 30th Anniversary in just a few days. Released on February 10th, 1993, Harold Ramis directed the film, which also starred Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliott. The PG Comedy has been one of my Murray films and is an excellent watch for today as Punxsutawney Phil says we are getting six more weeks of winter. Surprisingly Tom Hanks was Harold Ramis’ first pick over Murray. During production, Murray was bitten by the groundhog twice during shooting and had to have anti-rabies shots. The time loop movie is considered one of the most beloved comedy films ever made. It made a box office total of $105 million. Grab your 30th Anniversary Edtion today!


Phil (Bill Murray), a weatherman, is out to cover the annual emergence of the groundhog from its hole. He gets caught in a blizzard that he didn’t predict and finds himself trapped in a time warp. He is doomed to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right.
