Don’t let the fact that Bill Murray is the star fool you. Groundhog Day — one man’s journey through a multitude of identical yesterdays — is one of the most serious, sophisticated fantasy films you’ll come across. The bonuses are a little slim (a commentary from director Harold Ramis and a documentary), but they’re kind of irrelevant here. You’ll buy this movie for the movie — and for the fact that repeated DVD viewings won’t wear it out.
