Trailers from Hell: Chris Wilkinson on Classic Comedy of Repetition 'Groundhog Day,' Starring Bill Murray

Deja Vu All Over Again! kicks off this week at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Chris Wilkinson introducing Harold Ramis’ classic comedy of time-warp repetition, “Groundhog Day,” starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell as would-be lovers at the mercy of furry Punxsutawney Phil.

Murray finds the quintessential Bill Murray role in Ramis’ 1992 comic morality play about a shallow, egocentric reporter
forced to repeat the same 24 hour day till he gets it right. The gently acerbic
script, by Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis, is equal parts Woody Allen and Preston
Sturges with a little Frank Capra thrown in. Chris Elliot, Brian Doyle-Murray
and Ramis are part of an amiably eccentric supporting cast that would make
Sturges proud.
