55. Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day (1993)
Directed by Harold Ramis

Not much in the tanks for this review, but Groundhog Day is a film that really speaks for itself. I thought it was funny the first time I watched it, but never cared much for anything else in the film until I watched it again several years ago. In fact, I read somewhere that pastors ranked this film as one of the most spiritual films of all-time. While I am not sure about that (the film really has little to say about ‘God’ or spirituality in general), it certainly is a heartwarming film about the deeper meaning of love. For that and a hilarious turn from Bill Murray, this is one comedy that I just couldn’t do without.
