It’s that time of year when everyone gets a visit from their favorite groundhog. In celebration of Groundhog Day on Feb. 2, some will likely want to watch Bill Murray’s famed 1993 comedy of the same name. In the film, the veteran actor stars as Phil Connors, a grumpy weatherman who is forced to cover the antics of the annual celebration in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. His world is turned upside down when he wakes up in the small town the following morning only to realize the holiday is repeating itself. He is forced to right the wrongs in his life in order to stop the repetition, which results in both hilarious and tear-jerking moments.
