The film is about a weatherman caught in a personal time warp on the worst day of his life. Teamed with a relentlessly cheerful producer (MacDowell) and a smart-aleck cameraman (Elliott), TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities.
But on his way out of town, Phil is caught in a giant blizzard, which he failed to predict, and finds himself stuck in small-town hell. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, they do. Phil wakes the next morning to find it’s Groundhog Day all over again… and again… and again.
The classic grossed $70.9 million at the North American box office.
