    A hilarious and unexpectedly profound comedy.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Hal Hinson

    For once, the audience isn't forced to surrender its intelligence (or its healthy cynicism) to embrace the film's sunny resolution.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This movie has all the qualities necessary to be a crowd-pleaser: likable characters, charismatic performers, a strong, capably-executed premise, and lots of laughs.

  • Elvis Mitchell

    That glimmer of recognition is what makes Groundhog Day a particularly witty and resonant comedy, even when its jokes are more apt to prompt gentle giggles than rolling in the aisles.

  • Roger Ebert

    A demonstration of the way time can sometimes give us a break.

    Seeing it once is fine, but seeing it every day for the rest of your life is not recommended.

  • Louis Black

    There were a lot of ways for this film to go stupid; it succumbs to none of them.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    The funniest moments in Groundhog Day come when Phil takes sneaky advantage of his predicament-by, say, pumping a sexy woman in the local coffee shop for facts about her past and then, ''the next day,'' using the information to lure her into bed. What the movie lacks is the ingenious, lapidary comic structure that could have made these moments fuse into something tricky and wild.

    Dial your expectations to moderate, burrow in for the duration, and you won't be disappointed - it ain't exactly springtime, but there are worse things than an amiable outing on a winter's night.

  • Staff (Not Credited)

    The film is inconsistent in tone and pace; fortunately the pay-off works, bringing some much needed warmth to the area.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    With its zany daily episodes, "Groundhog" gets stuck in a non-progressive repetition.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Considering that none of the characters is fresh or interesting, it's a commendable achievement that the quality of the storytelling alone keeps the movie watchable and likable.

    Murray, more often than not, is pretty unbearable; but here, playing a man who is unbearable, Murray begins convincingly, amusingly, and gets even more amusing as he metamorphoses. [15 Mar 1993, p.24]
