Every year we watch the film Groundhog Day on or around the day. It’s a silly ritual but we like it. We must have seen that film now more than any other, although the star wars and back to the future trilogies must come close or slightly edge it, not sure.
Last night we watched it again with our friend Damian. Even though we know most of the lines we still enjoy it. The music still irritates and I still feel good when it all comes together at the end.
According to IMDB the film was originally going to be quite different. The phenomenon was going to have an explanation (a lame one) and it was going to begin with the time loop already in progress. Worst of all … it was going to be Tom Hanks in the lead.
If any one of those things had gotten into the film I don’t think we would be having this “conversation”.
