If you’re cynical weatherman Phil Connors, it’s a never-ending nightmare to be stuck in a small hick town whose biggest claim to fame is meteorologist groundhog Punxsutawney Phil. What sounds like an outlandish fantasy becomes an insightful look at discovering what you’re capable of when you finally find the selfless person within, when you lower your defenses and make the most of each day. Imagine being stuck in a time loop – wait, did we already say this?
