Groundhog Day (1993)


Groundhog Day Quote: “This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather” – Phil Connors

“Groundhog Day” is the rare movie that became more important than the holiday that inspired it. Many believe it’s Bill Murray’s greatest work, and Shat The Movies listener Greg has watched it again, and again, and again, and again.

There’s always something new to discover in this ’90s classic movie, even if you’ve seen it hundreds of times — like the fact Phil Connors could be a sexual predator.

In this episode of Shat The Movies:

  • the guys debate whether Andie MacDowell is hot
  • Big D reveals how “Groundhog Day” was inspired by “Interview With A Vampire”
  • Roger reveals all the dark things Big D would do if there were no consequences and ponders which Shat host looks at himself in the mirror the most
  • Airbnbs are pitted against conventional bed and breakfasts (gross) and hotels (not as gross)
  • Gene revels in the casting of Chris Elliot and the fat guy from “Herman’s Head”
  • Big D wonders what the hell “Herman’s Head” was

So put on your winter clothes and meet us in Punxsutawney, it’s time to do the Pennsylvania Polka!
