Should I watch Groundhog Day today?

It’s February 2nd AKA Groundhog Day and if you’re at a loose end, you need to take this quiz, right now.

Confused? Well then even MORE reason to watch Groundhog Day immediately for it’s the day Bill Murray was forced to relive over and over again in the spectacular 90s movie.


The classic flick was directed by the late, great Harold Ramis and has become a cult favourite since its release in 1993. Ramis, who also directed Murray in Ghostbusters stoked the fan theory flames by suggesting that Connors spends 10 years in the loop, but later upped that suggestion to “more like 30 or 40 years”. Eventually, WhatCulture, painstakingly worked out that Connors spends 12,395 days in the loop, which translates to 33 years and 350 days. That’s sorted then.

This year, some joker at Sky Cinema got into the Groundhog Day spirit with these TV listings. Brilliant.

Oh and let’s hope you never have to hear this song over and over again.
