Groundhog Day

I felt like a bit of Bill Murray, so returned to this film which I probably last watched over 20 years ago.

It was pretty much as I remembered, the basic story anyway, I had just forgotten the details. It is an entertaining watch but the whole premise of the film does start getting a little tired towards the end. Bill is funny but quite subdued compared to other films.

For some reason the ending was not as I remembered. I thought it ended with his groundhog day finally finishing, and instead his love interest in the film starting hers. This is not how it ended, but apparently it was in the original script, so perhaps I read it then it somehow morphed in my mind as being the actual ending. The mind is a malleable and tricky thing.

Bill, who seems to be a bit difficult at times, had a falling out with director Harold Ramis, and the two never worked together again.

Not bad, not great, but worth a watch again.
