Stephen Strange and weatherman Phil Connors have more in common than you’d expect.
Predicting the weather is not easy. Right now, we know a few things: Generally, things are getting warmer. If it’s an El Niño year, weather patterns will differ. But ultimately, the weather is a super-complex physics problem with tons of moving pieces that make totally accurate forecasting difficult and reliant on…
Bill Murray knows Groundhog Day. He’s been living it for years. You’d figure that it’d be all glad-handing and cut-ups when the beloved actor saw the musical version of his hit 1993 movie. But, while the jokes did happen, it was the tears that probably took everybody by surprise.
It’s February 2nd, Groundhog Day, which means someone will inevitably tell you the weather in a Pennsylvania town as experienced by a fat rodent.
To some, February 2nd is a time to trust the wisdom of a shadow-spotting rodent who makes vague predictions about the severity of winter. To others, it’s an annual excuse to watch Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day, again. But if you’re short on time this year, Neil Fennell has made a shorter half-hour version of the film…
Back in the 1800s, Punxsutawney Phil would have been a meal. Back in the day, Gobbler's Knob was the site of an annual groundhog hunt. You can read all about the history of groundhogs in Pennsylvania at History.com.
February 2 is one of the most important non-holidays on the calendar. You don't get to skip work, but when you get home, you get to watch Bill Murray in Groundhog Day again and again until the clock strikes midnight. And if you want to relive the film every day, Instructables has a fun hack that makes an alarm clock…
Created by Spanish director Aritz Moreno and producer Leire Apellaniz, this 60-second short is the story a man who gets up and prepares some coffee. Or maybe he never gets up. It's like a dark, condensed version of Groundhog Day without the possibility of ever having a happy ending.
We tend to think of science fiction and fantasy as being like mystery novels — the story is over when you solve the case. So we obsess over questions that have no answers. But here are 10 questions that are better unanswered, either because the possibilities are fascinating or because the answers would be terrible.
Harold Ramis — director and co-writer of Groundhog Day and the brains behind the Ghostbusters operation, died today from complications related to auto-immune inflammatory vasculitis. He was 69.
Just a day after the real-life Punxsutawney Phil forecast six more weeks of winter, the bed and breakfast where Groundhog Day was filmed hit the market. You could buy it, set an old-fashioned clock radio to go off at 6:00 a.m. playing "I Got You, Babe," and relive the same day over and over—and over and over and over…
This is either the best idea on the planet, or the absolute worst thing ever: The folks behind the Matilda Broadway play are developing a brand new Groundhog Day musical based on the wonderful film. Ned Ryerson solo or bust.
It's never not a good day to watch Groundhog Day, and today is even more not not a good day to watch it. Quite possibly one of the weirdest, most off-beat "holiday movies" out there, Groundhog Day is just begging to become a habit, something to recite sections of.
Today, millions of Americans waited with bated breath for a stupid rodent to see its shadow, all in hopes of figuring out how long winter will last. Silly? Sure. But not the weirdest winter predictor, not by a long shot.
Groundhog Day is such a wonderful movie that it's totally transformed the connotation of the actual holiday from "that day when we believe the magical rat is a weather god" to a symbol of unbearable repetitiveness.
Today, millions of Americans aited with bated breath for a stupid rodent to see its shadow, all in hopes of figuring out how long winter will last. Silly? Sure. But not the weirdest winter predictor, not by a long shot.
Everybody's flirting with the Dark Side on television this week. Sam Winchester's discovering how bad he really went, Anakin Skywalker's getting a horrific vision, and Peter Griffin is hanging out with Death. Meanwhile, we're going back "Over There" on Fringe. John Laroquette is back on Chuck, and one member of the…
This week, Fringe goes glam. Also, is Chuck finally putting Timothy Dalton in his place? Find out tonight! Plus Mena Suvari is a supervillain on The Cape. Smallville and Supernatural are really back. And Titanic gets the sequel it deserves.
I kind of love 12:01, the TV movie which had the misfortune to appear in the same year as Groundhog Day, which had the same basic plot. Because 12:01 uses its premise well, and has a pretty sweet love story.
