Every moment is unique. It cannot be replicated and even if we wish we could do something different in that moment, we know that we cannot go back.
But what happens when we get the chance to do something different in that moment?
That is the premise of the 1993 movie, Groundhog Day.
Phil (Bill Murray) is a weatherman. For the last four years, he has reported on whether or not the local groundhog will see it’s shadow. This event is the bane of his professional life. Phil makes it clear that he is an unwilling participant in the event. He wakes up one day to realize that he is reliving Groundhog Day every day. At first, Phil uses it to his advantage, but he will soon realize that he is stuck reliving the same day forever.
I have not seen this movie in years, but I remember that it was incredibly funny. Bill Murray’s Phil is snarky, sarcastic and a bit of smart ass.
I recommend it.
