"You can get stuck in a time warp and relive Groundhog
Day again and again and again on this DVD; this is a film that
actually gets better every time you see it. It's a little like
being dealt the same hand of cards again and again, and each time
it's up to us to play the hand differently. How much can we learn
from our own mistakes and stupidity? Groundhog Day has almost
become part of the English language, and it's hard to listen to
Sonny & Cher's 'I Got You Babe' without being reminded of its
relevance in this story. Bill Murray is at his sarcastic,
humorous best, while Andie MacDowell charms us effortlessly.
Danny Rubin's uplifting story is punctuated with sharp, one
liners like 'Do you have déjà vu?' 'I'll check with the
kitchen', while retaining an irresistible poignancy.
The sound is as crisp as the snow, the picture sharp in the
widescreen format (16:9 enhanced) preserves the original 1.5:1
theatrical aspect ratio. Navigation is simple – the menu is
straightforward easy to use, so there are no frustrations here.
The main event is the film itself with features limited to
filmographies of the two stars and director Harold Ramis plus the
original US movie trailer. There are a host of language options
(English, French, German, Italian and Spanish – all in 2.0
dolby surround plus seven languages in subtitles); I found it
rather entertaining to watch and listen to Bill Murray dubbed in
French. Less French body language you will never find! There are
33 chapter selections, so you can revisit February 2 over and
over. Groundhog Day is a delicious tale for the whole family
– its appeal is broad, its themes universal."
