Derek:  Hey. Have you seen that movie Groundhog Day[/def]?

Steph:  No. But it’s a good idea to see it now since it’s Groundhog Day this week.

Derek:  I thought so. That’s why I went and saw it. It, uh, I rented it and, uh, watched it and it was pretty cool.

Steph:  That’s cool. Refresh my memory. What was it about again?

Derek:  Well, it was about this guy. And he goes through his day and then the next morning he wakes up and it’s the same day. Ya know, and then he goes through his day again and realizes that he can go back and try to correct mistakes he made throughout the day. And then he wakes up, and it’s the same day again.

Steph:  Wow. I kinda wish that I could do that for all of my days, just correct the mistakes that I make.

Derek:  But can you imagine growing older and the same day over and over?

Steph:  That would be really hard.

Derek:  Yeah. And once you got everything correct, you would hopefully, you would hope that it would stop.

Steph:  You’d think. Yeah. Did it ever stop for him?

Derek:  Eventually it did.

Steph:  Well, that’s good.

Derek:  Yeah. You should check it out.

Steph:  Ok.

After talking to Derek, I went out and rented this movie. It was a riot!
It was really funny because Bill Murray is such a great actor and the storyline was fantastic.
Have you seen this movie? If you have, what did you think of it? If not, do you think that’s a good idea for a movie?
