Groundhog Day

Phil, an arrogant, narcissistic, cynical TV weatherman, is sent to Punxsatawney PA to cover the annual Groundhog Day Festival. After being the usual pain in the ass, especially to his co-workers Rita and Larry, a blizzard (that he failed to forecast) forces him to spend another night at his Punxsatawney bed & breakfast. He awakens next morning to find that it is Groundhog Day, again, and again, and again....apparently he is doomed to repeat this day forever.

Continuity mistake: When Phil has the groundhog in the truck at the quarry and is about to drive over the edge, Rita's hair is disheveled and sticking out all around her head. But after Phil has driven off the cliff and she's looking down, it's all pinned neatly in place.

Question: Toward the beginning of the movie, on Phil's first day at the bed and breakfast, he turns on the shower and it is very cold. He asks the lady in the hallway why there is no hot water. The lady answers "Oh no, there wouldn't be any today." Why not?

Answer: Old fashioned hotels have a single boiler for all the hotel rooms. Once the hot water reservoir is used up there won't be any more to use until the reservoir is refilled. This only happens once every few days.

Answer: Likely because there are a lot of people staying there and using up the hot water.
