Groundhog Day: The Movie

I've thought for some time that Groundhog Day is one of the most under-rated movies ever. Although it was a critical success and a box-office success, it won only a few awards from low-profile organizations - no Oscar nominations, no Golden Globes.

Yet it bears watching over and over again, revealing something new every time. And it's the most skewed approach to a testament to the redemptive power of true love I can imagine. Not to mention laugh-out-loud funny.

It's a minor irony that the latest Oscar nominations are released on Groundhog Day, 2010.
