Ode to Groundhog Day

"It's inspiring to see a man of advancing years
 throwing caution to the wind" LOVE this scene!
Flashback to this oh-so-wonderful movie from 1993.

In addition to a clever story, a hilarious screenplay and a cast that includes the beloved BILL MURRAY!!! Andie MacDowell and Stephen Tobolowsky, this movie is also under two hours long!

One characteristic of Groundhog Day that I find especially unusual is it's appeal to a broad
Stephen Tobolowsky's unforgettable role as Ned Ryerson
audience.  And I mean BROAD.  As a twelve year old girl, I was so thrilled with this movie when it came out that I watched it twice in the theaters in the same weekend.  Comedian Mike Schmidt has mentioned on his podcast The 40 Year Old Boy that this movie is perfect!

How often to you find a movie that a nearly fifty year old man and a twelve year old girl LOVE?


And I'm just gonna end with the cliche that they don't make 'em like they used to.
