Countdown to Groundhog Day

The 17 best Groundhog Day movies

Groundhog Day is this Sunday, so in honor of the big day, we decided to run down our list of favorite films about the holiday. Here, in no particular order, are the 17 best ever Groundhog Day related movies:

1.) Groundhog Day (1993) –  Directed by Harold Ramis and starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Scooter the Groundhog, this seminal classic is what every film about Groundhog Day should be – funny, romantic, and uplifting. Bill Murray, playing arrogant Pittsburgh weatherman Phil (“Phil? Like the groundhog Phil? ”) Connors, must relieve the same day over and over again until he finally gets it right.
