Groundhog Day — A deceptively sweet comedy packed with details and some romance — 10*/10

Groundhog Day is one of my very favorite movie. I watch it on a regular basis because it is packed with details. It's easy to appreciate right away, but its richness takes a while to seep into you because of the subtle way it's presented to you. Only a year ago I finally understood the depth of the evolution of the main character.

It's funny, the laughs are numerous and the humor contagious. The romance is key, but almost secondary. The cameraman and the insurance salesman are the only characters that really tick me off, but they still fit well within the whole movie and do not detract you from appreciating this little marvel.

The dialogs, which are Bill Murray's strong suite, are excellent. The scenario is without flaw, none whatsoever.

It's a must see movie, even if it's a family movie.
