Special Edition Not So Special,
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Groundhog Day (Special Edition) (DVD)
This is one of my all time favorite movies and I was very excited to see it released as a "Special Edition" DVD.
Unfortunately, while it's still a GREAT story -- this version of the DVD really doesn't have that many whistles and bells. It gives you the option to have Harold Ramis (the director) do a voice over during the movie and it has a brief documentary about the concept behind the movie. Andie McDowell and the guy who plays "Ned the Insurance Man" were the only actors they got to speak about the making of this movie. It was very disappointing to have Bill Murray missing, or even Chris Elliot for that matter.
One would think this movie had plenty of funny outakes -- but they are AWOL as well.
Buy this DVD if you love the movie "Groundhog Day" -- but don't expect much in the way of extras.

Who needs the "extras?' I just love the movie: the plot, the actors (Andie McDowell is something special) and acting, the romantic comedy, and fantasy of a sort, that it is. I know I'm not a film conniosseur. I've missed more good films than I've seen, but among those I have seen Groundhog Day is my favorite.
