Happy Groundhog Day 2022! If you are not a fan of winter, there is some bad news for you: Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter. No worries, Netflix has many movies and shows to enjoy while you avoid going outside. What about the 1993 Groundhog Day movie? Is that available on Netflix?

Harold Ramis directed the comedy movie Groundhog Day that he wrote with Danny Rubin. The film was a box office success and was one of the highest-grossing films of 1993.

Groundhog Day’s cast includes Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliot, Stephen Tobolowsky, Brian Doyle-Murray (Bill Murray’s older brother), Marita Geraghty, Angela Paton, Rick Ducommun, Rick Overton, and Robin Duke.

Is Groundhog Day on Netflix?

Unfortunately, Groundhog Day isn’t available to stream on Netflix. If you are a Starz subscriber, this film is available on that service. You can also rent it on Google Play, iTunes, VUDU, YouTube, and Amazon Prime.

The story follows Murray’s character, Phil Connors, a cynical weatherman sent on assignment to the Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. He is required to cover this assignment each year and makes no secret of how much he loathes it.

He gets stuck in a time loop and must relive Feb. 2 repeatedly. Each morning he is awakened to the song “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher. Once he realizes what is happening and that there will be no consequences to his actions, he begins binge eating, committing robberies, and other dangerous activities. No one else is aware of what is going on, which he uses to his advantage.

If you’ve never watched this film and enjoy comedy and Bill Murray, you need to see this one. The film is an excellent meld of comedy, cynical moments, and an underlying philosophical message.

If you prefer to view a comedy on Netflix, no worries, there are plenty to choose from. Check out comedies like Murder Mystery, 21 Jump Street, Step Brothers, Bad Teacher, or the classic Bill Murray film Caddyshack.
