Where Can I Watch ‘Groundhog Day’ Online for Free?

Groundhog Day falls on February 2. And like most things since the start of the pandemic, it’s just not going to be the same. Yes, our esteemed groundhog Phil will still be called upon to come out of his burrow at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, PA to predict the remainder of winter by checking for his shadow. But alas, he’ll be all by his lonesome—because Groundhog Day 2021 will officially be virtual, streaming live on the Pennsylvania tourism website without any live activities.

Of course, whether our furry pal sees his shadow or not (and considering there is currently a winter snowstorm bearing down on the northeast, we’re willing to place a bet on a negative outcome) what may be a more fulfilling celebration is figuring out how to watch the classic, existential time loop comedy Groundhog Day online.

Let’s face it, Covid has made many of us feel like we are reliving the same day over and over (and over). And this 1993 movie, directed by Harold Ramis and starring Bill Murray as a self-loathing meteorologist named, yeah, you got it, Phil, who wakes to find himself consistently reliving February 2 while simultaneously trying to get his gorgeous producer Rita (Andie MacDowell) into the sack, definitely hits a nerve.

But what follows is a life-changing concession of wake-up calls which, finally, make Phil understand that it’s more important to care about others than just yourself. A simple lesson, yet with the state of the world these days, we might all benefit from an infinite number of days to figure out how to heal thyselves (preferably without access to social media).

GROUNDHOG DAY CAST: BILL MURRAY, ANDIE MACDOWELL, CHRIS ELLIOTT

Oh how we love to hate Bill Murray (Lost in Translation, Ghostbusters) as he seeks to redeem himself through the same yet slightly tweaked day of hell in Punxsutawney. But he’s joined by a talented cast including Andie Macdowell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Sex, Lies and Videotape) and Chris Elliott (There’s Something About Mary, Cabin Boy), among other stars.
