One of my favorite movies of all time is "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray as Phil Conners, Andie McDowell and Chris Elliott and is directed by the late Harold Ramis. This super fun film tells a fantastic, idealogical story of a highly successful, big city, news anchor and field reporter who boasts a big cartoon like personality composed of being self serving, arrogant and over-the-top egotistical towards life. This not only ultimately creates misery for Phil, but those around him who selflessly support him in his job.
On an reoccurring assignment to the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover the annual Groundhog Day ceremony and celebration, Phil is sentenced to wake up each and every morning at the same exact time and relive the same day over and over again until he makes different choices that eventually change the outcome of his life and the lives of those around him. As his daily frustration increases at not being able to get out of it, he makes daily attempts to kill himself only to wake up at the same exact time the following morning with a fresh start and needing to decide to do things differently or face the same challenges to eternity.
In the end and perhaps out of desperation, Phil does in fact change his perspective on life and becomes a happy and generous person who ends up with the girl he's fallen in love with.
