Groundhog Day
Part of the Summer Classic film series

Groundhog Day is a modern comedy classic, featuring grumpy television weatherman (Bill Murray), who reluctantly goes to cover the feel-good story of a small town Groundhog Day celebration, only to wake up the following day to find himself mired in a endless loop of Groundhog Days. When he realizes there are no consequences for his actions, he’s forced to decide what to do with his newfound power—use it for good, or use it for evil? Either way, it’s fun to watch.
