Groundhog Day

Trivia: The two men heard on the radio every time Groundhog Day repeats itself are director Harold Ramis and Bill Murray's brother Brian Doyle-Murray.

Trivia: The screenwriters for the film have said that the total amount of time that Bill Murray is stuck repeating the same day is about 10 years.

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.

Trivia: Bill Murray is actually playing Rhapsody on a Theme by Paginini on the piano, it's not dubbed in.

Deliberate mistake: When Phil wakes up at 6 AM, it's already bright outside. At 6 AM in February, it would still be pitch-dark. This was done intentionally by the director for the sake of the viewer, but still makes no sense.
