Groundhog Day succeeds on just about every level imaginable. It is funny, relevant, has a conscience and is filled with wonderful life moments we can all associate with. Phil (Bill Murray) must relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right. Along the way he slowly begins to understand his character flaws and the consequences of his actions.
Among the takeaways from this movie are:
- Honest self-awareness is the single most important attribute a person can have
- Never replace honesty with sarcasm
- Being genuine is always the best approach
