The concept of
Groundhog Day is daring and
the execution hilarious. Forced to relive the same day over and over again, cynic Phil
Connors (Murray) has his face pressed into a bowl full of insight. What better way to awake
each day than with the forced good natured alarm banter of two hick town early morning
radio jockeys. What better place to be stuck in time than beautiful downtown Punxsatawney,
Pa. in full swing during the wonderful Groundhog Day celebration.
Delivered anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1 on one side and P/S on the other, Groundhog Day is a stunning DVD. The cold Pennsylvania colors are perfectly captured with consistently sharp images. Viewed anamorphically, the DVD is extremely film-like. The Dolby Digital 2-channel sound is good enough to make you want to dance the polka over and over and over again.
