September 26, at But you, and other right wing bigots, need to worry about them a bit nearer the election, when the groundwork is done, and the majority can see how much different life could be under an honest man. Oh yes the media will continue to try and make him out not to be an honest man, for his supporters to be hooligans, for his proposed policies to be unworkable.
Concept[ edit ] Danny Rubin had completed and sold his script for Hear No Evil and moved from Chicago to Los Angeles to become a professional screenwriter around Instead he came back to a concept he had written down about two years earlier about a man living the same day over and over. With the idea of a person changing over time, this repeating day motif found its "deeper purpose" within the new script.
Groundhog Day also presented Rubin with the idea of being able to take his character out of his home town into the unfamiliar territory and relative isolation of Punxsutawney, and cementing the character being named Phil in honor of Punxsutawney Phil, as well as making him a weatherman.
While many studios expressed interest, they told him they wouldn't be able to film it, though Rubin was able to secure additional work through these meetings. After his own agent left the industry, Rubin hired a spec agent to help sell the script more.
The script got to the hands of Richard Lovett in the Creative Artists Agencywho was able to get it to Harold Ramis aroundleading to Ramis offering to produce the film. In that version, Phil unceremoniously dumps his current girlfriend Stephanie during the introductory scenes of the film at the studio.
While Phil is at Punxsutawney, a scorned Stephanie devises a way to cast a spell to trap Phil within the loop for 10, years. Filming[ edit ] Tip Top Bistro, established at the site of the fictional Tip Top Cafe in Woodstock The film was shot in Woodstock, Illinois60 miles 97 kilometres northwest of Chicago near the Wisconsin border, because Punxsutawney "didn't have a town center that looked good on camera", according to Ramis,  and because Punxsutawney's remote location magnified the logistical problems and expense of filming there.
The bites were severe enough that he was forced to undergo precautionary rabies immunization afterward. Later, it became a coffee and Italian ice cream shop,  and after that a fried chicken outlet. Murray had wanted to make the film more contemplative and less of a comedy, contrary to Ramis's view.
Rather than have to handle Murray's constant phone calls, Ramis had Murray work with Rubin in New York City directly to adjust the script to satisfy Murray's requests.
It wasn't until we got into the shooting that everything turned on its head. And it became not only a good movie, not only a great movie, but a classic. When Murray returned to Woodstock to complete filming, Ramis described his behavior as "just really irrationally mean", and difficult to work with.
Except for a few words at a wake, and later at a bar mitzvah, the two men did not speak for almost 20 years after the film's release. The film is number 32 on Bravo 's " Funniest Movies". Inreaders of Total Film voted it the seventh greatest comedy film of all time.
