Deja Vu. As a general rule when I’m watching films, I generally don't watch pure comedy films. I watch a lot of films with comedy elements (like Guardians of the Galaxy) but pure comedy films never really interested me… that is until I saw Groundhog Day.
My One Big Highlight
I could of said the entire concept, but that would be cheating. My one big highlight is the origins of the time-loop. The film never explains how or why the time-loop started with Phil on that particular day. With it not being explained, it’s up to the audience to invent a reason. So Doc Brown, has the space time continuum been corrupted recently?
Elephant In the Room
Yes, I know I just referenced that scene in my one big highlight, but I was struggling to come up with something bad! I thought the scene where we see Phil kill himself in a number of ways was ok, but they could of omitted that, as the scene of the diner would of sufficed when he says: “I have been stabbed, shot, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted, and burned.” But that is nitpicking for you.
