Groundhog Day - trailer

Today (2 February) is Groundhog Day, the traditional Pennsylvania holiday lived over and over by Bill Murray in the 1993 comedy of the same name.

As has become the norm, the schedulers over at Sky have sensed an opportunity and are broadcasting the film.

Not just once or twice, mind – they’re airing the film 13 times in a row.

If you’re a die-hard Groundhog Day fan, you would have been able to watch the film from 6:45 AM – that’s when the first showing began.

But be prepared to remain awake for quite some time; the final airing is due to finish a whole 24 hours later.

If Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” comes on the radio at any point, though, might we suggest you cancel those marathon plans.

The cult comedy was directed by the late Harold Ramis and follows Bill Murray’s weatherman who is caught in a time warp, doomed to relive the same day over until he gets it right.
