Groundhog Day (1993)

groundhog day

Happy Groundhog Day from Alcohollywood! This week, we cover the film that, well, we have to cover – the 1993 comedy Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray! This tale of repeating days and personal improvement is likely the funniest film about spiritual transcendence to be set in Pennsylvania. (I do not say that lightly.) Also stars romantic comedy staple Andie MacDowell and comedian Chris Elliot, relishing his 13th minute of fame.

THIS EPISODE’S DRINK: The Punxsu-tini

FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:

Next week, we deal with another holiday-themed film with “Day” in the title. However, instead of a critically-acclaimed movie that sits in the National Film Registry, we get the most blatant excuse for a quick Hollywood paycheck in the 2010 celebrity trainwreck Valentine’s Day!
