Matt writes: This past Groundhog Day, February 2nd, in Chicago, actor and filmmaker Harold Ramis was celebrated by members of his beloved 1993 classic, “Groundhog Day,” at a special public event honoring the tenth anniversary of his passing. I had the joy of speaking with four of the participating cast members—Robin Duke, Marita Geraghty, David Pasquesi and Stephen Tobolowsky—prior to the event, and you can read our conversations in my in-depth essay linked here.

When Roger Ebert inducted “Groundhog Day” into his Great Movies series in 2005, he admitted that he underrated the film in his original review. “I enjoyed it so easily that I was seduced into cheerful moderation,” Ebert wrote. “But there are a few films, and this is one of them, that burrow into our memories and become reference points. When you find yourself needing the phrase This is like ‘Groundhog Day’ to explain how you feel, a movie has accomplished something.”
