Groundhog Day is about a TV weatherman named Phil (Bill Murray), who is… kind of a b*****d. He is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover the Groundhog Day festival. After having a terrible Groundhog Day, a ticked off Phil goes to bed — and wakes up on Groundhog day. Phil finds himself to be in a “time loop” — forced to repeat the same day over and over again.
Let me start by saying that this film is one of my favorite films of all times. First, it’s hilarious. Second, it’s imaginative. Third, it’s hilarious. Did I mention it’s hilarious? Honestly, nothing turns me – I mean draws me to turn the TV on – more than a good comedy.
As for if it’s age appropriateness, sure. Phil seduces lots of women with his amazing situation, but nothing is graphic. Phil attempts suicide a ton of times. The language is very mild. Really, the film is more focused on the message than profanity or sex.
Age Recommendation: 7+. Really.
Final Verdict: A hard 10/10. One of my all time favorites.
