Corrected entry: When Phil Connors is giving the now deceased street bum mouth to mouth in an effort to save him, he raises his head to take another breath and you can see the breath from the old man rising, even though he is supposed to be dead. And it can't be Phil's as it is rising.
Corrected entry: When the pickup truck smashes through the gate, you can see that its grill is already busted.
Corrected entry: Right after the scene where Bill Murray gets hit in the head with the shovel while talking on the phone, there is a shot outside the bar where Bill is inside drinking and it is night time. In the scene following, Bill is taking a shower for the first time. While Bill is in the cold shower, it is day time outside of the window but it should be night time because he hasn't woken up a 2nd time yet.
Corrected entry: In the first scene at the bed and breakfast before Phil says "chance of departure." he is talking to the lady. At the end of this scene he picks up his cup of coffee. Yet when he says his lines seconds later, the coffee cup is gone and he is putting on his coat. (00:09:55)
Corrected entry: When Phil is driving on the railroad tracks in the evening, the weather is clear and it is not snowing. Later on in the film, Phil is dancing with Rita in the park at around the same time of night and it is snowing. There was no way for Phil to have affected this - the weather should be identical every day.
Corrected entry: It is clear that Phil arrives at Gobbler's Nob at a slightly different time each day, some days earlier, some days later. Why then does that song that keeps on playing there start the moment he arrives - it's never part of the way through, it starts when he comes into shot.
Corrected entry: It only takes around 2 seconds for the piano student to stop playing, get her coat and books and be kicked out of the house.
Corrected entry: When Bill Murray exits the bed and breakfast on the first day, you'll notice that his later piano teacher is walking towards Gobbler's Nob. The second day, a different amount of time goes by between the time Bill Murray leaves the bed and breakfast and sure enough, the same people are walking towards Gobbler's Nob, including the piano teacher. Did they all adjust their own personal schedule for Phil Connors?
Corrected entry: In one of the scenes when the German dressed waitress is carrying beers, her clothes are different from one scene to the next.
Corrected entry: At the end, in the bar, we see Larry trying to impress Nancy, who makes an obvious effort to get away from him by declining an invitation to see the inside of his van, saying she's going in to the party. He starts to follow when Rita comes up and he stops to talk to her. Instead of using this opportunity to escape, Nancy comes back to stand beside Larry. This makes no sense at all, except as a way to tell Rita that Phil was already inside at the party.
Corrected entry: Bill Murray is supposed to be stuck in Punxsatawny due to a snow storm. In all the night scenes through out the movie there is no shortage of snow, except the night he is out at the bowling alley. When he decides to give his two new friends a ride home, there is no snow anywhere in town.
Corrected entry: In the middle of the film, where Bill Murray is trying to convince Andie Macdowell that he's a god, he introduces them to "Debbie Klaiser and her fiancé, Fred." At the end of the film, after they've gotten married, he introduces them as Debbie and Fred Klaiser. So did he take her name in marriage, or is this one of those places where siblings marry?
