A fun movie with Bill Murray where he keeps waking up to the same day.
I was bored with this movie-but it was memorable because it was filmed in 1993 at Woodstock, Illinois's town square-just down the road from where we lived. So of course all of the locals were excited about the movie crew coming to town.
I remembered this was fun to see them change up some of the stores on the square for the movie.
Woodstock square is still unique with it's brick paved road around the square of shops and business's, and at the time we lived there a very old large post office. In the center of the square is a grassy area with a large gazebo type structure that would hold ice cream socials and music in the warmer months. The town would also close off the square to traffic and hold huge craft and art shows-I really enjoyed those when we lived in that area-before 2003
Found online A cynical TV weatherman finds himself reliving the same day over and over again when he goes on location to the small town of Punxsutawney to film a report about their annual Groundhog Day. His predicament drives him to distraction, until he sees a way of turning the situation to his advantage.
This movie got good reviews
I looked up some photos of the square in Woodstock Illinois

This was the town's-and hub's favorite bakery-everything from scratch-doing this search I discovered the new owners closed it-that's sad They were world famous for their huge cinnamon rolls. an article here of the history of the bakery
