About the film:

A narcissistic TV weatherman, along with his attractive-but-distant producer, and his mawkish cameraman, is sent to report on Groundhog Day in the small town of Punxsutawney, where he finds himself repeating the same day over and over.

About the filmmaker:

Born Chicago, Illinois, Harold Ramis got his start in comedy as Playboy magazine’s joke editor and reviewer. In 1969, he joined Chicago’s Second City’s Improvisational Theatre Troupe before moving to New York to help write and perform in “The National Lampoon Show” with other Second City graduates including John Belushi, Gilda Radner and Bill Murray. By 1976, he was head writer and a regular performer on the top Canadian comedy series SCTV (1976). His Hollywood debut came when he collaborated on the script for National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978) which was produced by Ivan Reitman. After that, he worked as writer with Ivan as producer on Meatballs (1979), Stripes (1981), Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989) and acted in the latter three.
