Poll: I am thinking about watching Groundhog day, Is it worth it? (312 votes)

Yes, totally start watching that shit now 90%
NO, that movie will be a waste of time. 3%
wait until Groundhog day 8%

I have been meaning to watch that movie. I remember it being on tv many years ago and I had no interest but since then I feel like I have heard enough about it that I should give it a shot.

That movie is great. Go watch it.

#2 Posted by falserelic (5326 posts) -

It was a fun movie to watch you should check it out. Then let us know your thoughts about it.

#3 Posted by wrecks (2210 posts) -

Watch it, but don't drive angry.

#4 Posted by Jayzilla (2555 posts) -

That is one of those movies that is in the "repeatably watchable" category. Watch it.

#5 Posted by psylah (2162 posts) -

It's so good.

#6 Posted by skrutop (3615 posts) -

Bing!

Groundhog Day is a great movie. Super funny and clever.

Not to mention it being a movie with Bill Murray in it. Watching it on Groundhog Day doesn't really add anything, so don't bother waiting until then.

#8 Posted by Dallas_Raines (2135 posts) -

Yes

#9 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11475 posts) -

Groundhog Day is really good.

#10 Edited by ShadowConqueror (3050 posts) -

Watch it.

#11 Posted by JasonR86 (9608 posts) -

Yes, it is.

#12 Edited by Pr1mus (3809 posts) -

Definitely my favorite comedy of all time. It's a brilliant film.

#13 Posted by Twinsun (468 posts) -

I love that movie, watch it, then watch it again

#14 Posted by joshwent (2113 posts) -

Come for the surprisingly not annoying Chris Elliott, stay for the actually funny Stephen Tobolowsky. A perfect film.

#15 Posted by Scrawnto (2434 posts) -

It's a hell of a movie. Enjoy.

#16 Posted by gaminghooligan (1407 posts) -

Bill Murray is in it. That is my answer to your question.

#17 Edited by MooseyMcMan (10473 posts) -

The first half of it is pretty funny, but then it gets SUPER sappy and pretty awful.

I'm willing to bet that everyone else is either saying what they are because of nostalgia, or they have bad taste.

The last chunk of that movie is horrible! HORRIBLE!

#18 Edited by Optix12 (611 posts) -

If you're not already watching this by now I am dissapointed.

Edit: while its not the best of films to run and watch its still pretty decent but no need to wait for groundhog day

#19 Edited by Christoffer (1758 posts) -

One of the greatest movies ever

Edit: one of those movies you know is pretty stupid-fun but makes you think at the end.

#20 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

Meh... the writers decided it should be a love story, for some reason. Took a lot out of the movie for me.

You're wrong! That movie would be super dumb and shallow without some redemption and happiness to close it out. It's the perfect film.

I was not sure if I wanted to watch this movie or not. And considering you people come to this site too, I assume you have a similar sense of humour.

#24 Posted by ike7779 (284 posts) -

We watched it in a literature college course because somehow it is a Sci-Fi and/or Fantasy classic? Anyways, yes it's awesome.

#25 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

Not a bad movie. Why not watch it?

#26 Posted by TheHT (10880 posts) -

Groundhog day is too far away. Watch it now.

#27 Posted by mlarrabee (2885 posts) -

"Ned?!"

Watch it.

#28 Posted by triple07 (1196 posts) -

Yes you should watch it. Although I'm not sure what you mean by worth it...is it worth the 2 hours or so it'll take you to watch it? Yes. Is it worth the 5 or 10 bucks to watch it? Yes.

Watch it then watch it again.

Man, I watched that movie over and over again...

They don't want to watch a film and form their opinion after the fact so instead they form an opinion prior to watching it with the help of a forum, effectively ruining the experience of watching a film that's unknown to them.

It's pretty good. I've watched it a few times.

#34 Posted by phampire (281 posts) -

I've watched it for the first time quite recently, it still holds up and I enjoyed it.

#35 Edited by Irvandus (2824 posts) -

Watched it two months ago and it hasn't lost it's charm.

#36 Posted by jsnyder82 (726 posts) -

It's truly a classic. It's one of those films that, ironically, you can watch over and over again and not get bored.

#37 Posted by Akyho (1585 posts) -

Why have you not watched it yet?! Change it!!

#38 Posted by Dalai (6996 posts) -

Wait until Groundhog Day. Make it a special occasion.

#39 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Just listen to this episode of the Bombcast and you'll be good.

#40 Posted by Max_Cherry (1131 posts) -

I love that movie. You should watch it right now.

#41 Edited by TooWalrus (13136 posts) -

Dude Groundhog Day holds up incredibly well. So does most of Bill Murray's stuff actually.

#42 Posted by c_rakestraw (823 posts) -

It's a fun movie. Definitely worth watching.

Are you telling me you just go watch movies blind without ever looking at a review or asking a friend what he thinks of it prior or post his viewing of said movie? I highly doubt that I am in the minority in this, especially since we are having this discussion on a site that mainly trades on its staff's opinion to pre-released games. I guess everybody here (you included) are lazy and dont want to form any opinions related to games. And before you tell me that quicklooks are more equivalent to trailers, consider this, a trailer is what someone on staff thinks represents the movie or worse, will attract the most people. It is that persons opinion of the movie that also projects the same onto the people who now have "ruined the experience". I guess we should all just buy games and movies blindly and go "LALALALA" anytime anyone even tries to suggest we rent a copy of the lion king.

Bill Murray at his funniest.

Anytime in your life you are thinking about making a decision, make sure you stop, and consult the internet first. You'll thank me later ^_^

#46 Edited by PenguinDust (12450 posts) -

One of the best comedies made in the last 20 years.

#47 Posted by ShaggE (6331 posts) -

If it has Bill Murray, it is worth watching. Rule of thumb right there.

#48 Posted by Atlas (2430 posts) -

I watched it for the first time a couple of months ago. Was OK, clever premise but not particularly funny to me.

#49 Posted by Kidavenger (3509 posts) -

I think this film works best if you watch it immediately following a viewing of Deliverance.

#50 Posted by Butano (1728 posts) -

It's a movie about my birthday, over and over and over again. How can I hate it?
