'Groundhog Day' And in his latest, "groundhog day " the shtick is still funny. He can teach himself piano. He can find out basic information from attractive local Marita Geraghty, for instance http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/movies/videos/groundhogdaypg
Extractions: Y ou go to see Bill Murray not the movie he's in. No matter how mediocre the film, time spent with him is always rewarding. That absurdist deadpan has served him since the Carter-era "Saturday Night Live." And in his latest, "Groundhog Day," the shtick is still funny. For a time, the movie's pretty good too. "Groundhog" will never be designated a national film treasure by the Library of Congress. But, in terms of vehicle selection, this is one of the better ones Murray has hitched himself to. In fact, its "Twilight Zone"-type premise (scripted by Danny Rubin and director Harold Ramis) is initially intriguing. A people-hating weatherman on a Pittsburgh TV station, Murray's waiting for his real ship to come in. "For your information, Hairdo," he asserts to a well-coiffed colleague at WPBH, "there's a news channel interested in me." Until that questionable possibility, however, he must content himself with such hated aspects of his job as the annual trip on Groundhog Day. For this inane (to his mind) festival, he must join the reporting flocks at Punxsutawney, Pa., to catch the yearly appearance of the spring-determining rodent. If the divining "Punxsutawney Phil" sees his furry shadow, six more weeks of winter are due. If he doesn't, the thaw is on. Now back for his fourth Groundhog Day, Murray with producer Andie MacDowell and cameraman Chris Elliott waits impatiently for the day to end.

There is a Review of Seduction Science available on this web site. A lot of guys tell me that they have trouble developing the right attitude around women... the playful, relaxed, charasmatic attitude that women really go for. Of course, being the kind of man that exudes that kind of attractive energy is easier said then done. You may have seen other guys with it, but somehow it eludes the rest of us. Well rent the movie "Groundhog's Day" starring Bill Murray and watch it. Murray is the typical anti-seducer who turns women off with his pessimistic, dreary attitude on life. He's pretty much given up on women and himself. And nobody likes him. Then one morning, on Groundhog's Day, he wakes up and day after day he experiences the same day over and over again. Every day is just like the last one. The only difference is HIM and what HE does. Very quickly realizes there are no consequences to his actions because no matter what he does that day, the next morning it's as if nothing ever happened.

Extractions: Groundhog Day Screenwriter By Alan Freed, PunxsutawneyPhil.com Webmaster If we could attribute the increased interest in Punxsutawney's Groundhog Day festivities over the past decade to one individual, it would be Danny Rubin. After all, it was Rubin who came up with the idea of sticking someone in our town for many, many, many, many Groundhog Days for the entertainment of millions of people around the world. Rubin spent many years in professional theater companies, children's television and as a teacher of screenwriting. He is currently a member of the faculty at The College of Santa Fe (New Mexico). Groundhog Day was released in 1993, and claimed the top spot in the box office for two weeks. Worldwide the movie brought in more than $100 million, and it earned a British Academy Award for Best Screenplay. I first had a chance to meet with Rubin when he visited Punxsutawney with Bill Murray on Groundhog Day, 1992. I recently caught up with him by phone at his home in New Mexico to talk about the film, which is still making lasting impressions on people seven years later. During that conversation I got answers to some of the questions I have been asked about the film by e-mail from people over the past several years: Yes, it could have just as easily been Arbor Day, and the events of the movie would have been dictated by that choice. There were many reasons that Groundhog Day was a good arbitrary choice. It was a good choice because it's in the dead of winter. That made good sense for the story since the main character was stuck in his darkest day.

Extractions: Bill Murray, in probably the most memorable role of his career outwith the Ghostbusting arena, shines as Phil Connors, the super-cynical TV weatherman forced to repeat the same day time and time again. It's February 2nd which, to the people of the small town of Punxsutawney, means Groundhog Day - an annual opportunity to watch an over-sized squirrel predict the weather. For Phil, though, it means waking every morning to Sonny and Cher, endlessly trying to explain his situation to his bemused workmates (Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliott), generally living through the world's most critical case of déjà vu. This movie contains some remarkably dark moments, most notably when Phil loses all hope and begins daily making his way through all number of fruitless suicide attempts. What shows through, however, is the transformation in his character whilst all around him remain exactly the same, and of course his eventual romance with the bubbly but distrusting Rita (MacDowell). Murray's never exactly been one for playing the most lovey-dovey of characters, but the relationship between him and McDowell works surprisingly well.

Extractions: Full Review Groundhog Day gave brief but much-needed boosts to the careers of both funny-but-undiscerning comedian Bill Murray and pretty-but-rubbish actress Andie MacDowell. Its plot is well-known, but mis-quoted. A jaded weather reporter is forced to re-live Groundhog Day over and over again. Most reviews will mention something about 'until he gets it right' - but interestingly that's not something that's ever actually mentioned in the film itself. A review of this film by a non-American is always going to be of particular importance, as I realised when I looked at the other Epinions entries. I knew nothing about the whole Groundhog ritual thing until I saw the film, and I had no idea that the tradition was actually genuine until I read the reviews. And this puts me in a better position to appreciate the film.

The repetition in this film makes it relatively easy to understand. Many jokes are physical. Students will laugh, which is always a good thing. Pre-viewing activities For culture, ask about traditional methods of forecasting the weather in China. Talk about attitudes of city people toward those who live in countryside. Groundhog Day is a folk belief (if the groundhog sees his shadow there will be 6 more weeks of winter) given new life in the television culture which dictates that the TV weatherman be a public relations agent and entertainer. Often required to appear at community events. He should be lovable. Phil means "love" in Greek, but this TV weatherman is anything but lovable.
