Corrected entry: The movie was shot in Woodstock Illinois, not Punxsutawney Pennsylvania. In the scene where Phil meets Ned on the street, you can clearly see in the background a sign on a jewellery store that says "Woodstock Jewellers".

Correction: While this is a very interesting note, it is not necessarily a mistake. A jewelry store in Punxutawney could still be named Woodstock Jewellers. The founder's name could be Woodstock, for example.


Corrected entry: The first time Bill Murray leaves the hotel he opens the door which has the shades pulled down. In the next shot we see him standing outside with the door behind him and the shades are up.

Correction: The Hotel's entrance has two doors, the inner one with shades and the other one without shades.


Corrected entry: Near the end of the film, Bill Murray's character's piano teacher refers to him as one of her pupils - which is true, but as far as she is concerned she would only have remembered the very last lesson - which would have started with him as a very accomplished performer.

Correction: She's just boasting


Visible crew/equipment: When Bill Murray first meets Ned Ryerson, there is a reflection of the film crew very briefly in the shop window behind them.

Trivia: I'm not sure if this was done intentionally, but in the scene where Phil is eating a table full of sweets, talking to Rita, as the camera pans in on Phil, there are 2 clocks on his immediate left. Both look like they indicate the same time, but one says 5:55, and one says 11:30. Notice that the angle of each hand is the same, but the little and big hands are switched. Neat trick if it was done on purpose.

Question: When Phil Connors is playing the piano with the jazz group, his piano teacher excitedly tells Rita that he is her pupil. Why has he has a piano lesson that day, when he obviously learnt to play brilliantly in previous days?

Answer: He has been doing the same routine for who knows how many "days", that is would not be unusual that he would have a lesson that day - no matter how well he played.
