“Groundhog Day.” Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell (1993).

29 Dec

groundhogHere’s why I like this movie, they kept it real. Of course, they had to have the lead character, Phil (Bill Murray), initially establish himself as something of a jerk. That way, we feel comfortable with his initial inclinations toward hostility when he realizes that each day is a repetition of February 2nd, thus he is living without consequences. Though deep down we would all probably punch Ned Needlemeyer in the face in a consequence-free environment, we are allowed to resonate with Murray’s character while still feeling a sense of moralistic distance. It is a truly genius commentary on human behavior…and simply delightful, if nothing else. Lighthearted comedy, love, humanity: Groundhog Day is simply delightful!

Lessons from 500 Days of Summer.

Entertaining and bittersweet, this artsy non-love story is was filmed on location in our very own and beautiful downtown Los Angeles.  If there are two general love-related lessons that can be taken from this movie, they would be:

1. Read the signals, it’s usually not that complicated to tell how someone feels about you.

2. Be happy with what others can and want to give you. Don’t demand or expect more (because it never works).
