It seems that 1993’s Groundhog Day is enjoying another moment in the spotlight. Roger Ebert has a recent reappraisal, explaining why the film has joined the category of those that “burrow into our memories and become reference points. When you find yourself needing the phrase This is like Groundhog Day to explain how you feel, a movie has accomplished something.” Jonah Goldberg’s new interpretation graces the cover of the current National Review (subscription only) and is a current topic of conversation (along with The Big Lebowski) on their blog. Here’s Touchstone’s earlier article on the religious interpretations of the movie. And for true legitimacy, of course, we have the comic strip Grand Avenue for today.
