* TheHedonist: Phil becomes this in some of the early cycles when he realizes that no tomorrow means no consequence. He takes the opportunity to indulge in unhealthy food, wild behavior, and bedding various women through what amounts to save-scumming.

* WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve: It’s six AM in this case. True, Phil relives Groundhog Day proper every day, but it's from 6:00 AM February 2 to 5:59 AM February 3. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d once when Rita says she expected him to “turn into a pumpkin or something” at midnight.

* TheAntiNihilist: Phil becomes this by the end of the movie.



* ArmorPiercingSlap: There’s an entire ''montage'' of these when Phil tries to refine his technique on Rita (only to get shot down every time).
** EnforcedMethodActing: As usual with Bill Murray, every slap is real.

* NotSoDifferent: Phil complains to ThoseTwoGuys that in his time loop, he does the same thing over and over, and nothing he ever does matters. One of them mumbles “That about sums it up for me.”

* NotSoDifferent: Phil complains to ThoseTwoGuys that in his time loop, he does the same thing over and over, and nothing he ever does matters. One of them mumbles “That about sums it up for me.” Although this is open to interpretation. What Phil asks is, ''"What would you do if'' every day was the same and nothing you did mattered?" and his buddy responds by taking a shot. So "That about sums it up for me," could be an agreement that drinking heavily is the thing to do.

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Meta-example. In his 1993 review of the film, ''UsefulNotes/{{Washington|DC}} Post'' film critic Desson Howe recommended it but tempered his praise by stating that it would “never be designated a national film treasure by the Library of Congress”; in 2006 the movie ''was'' designated a national film treasure by the Library of Congress.

Added DiffLines:

* NoChallengeEqualsNoSatisfaction: As the time loop gradually grinds away his sanity, to occupy himself Phil indulges in all manner of pleasure, and sees winning over the strong-willed Rita in a single day [[ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou as a challenge he can't refuse]]. When this fails, repeatedly, [[NothingLeftToDoButDie a long spiral into depression begins]], until Rita constructively suggests he strive for a better outlook on life. Eventually, using his knowledge of the day's events Phil is determined [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong to make everyone's day a great one.]]

** It gets to the point where he answers one of the questions ''before it's even finished being asked'', which visibly creeps one of the B&B guests out.

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnreveal: The audience never finds out how Phil got trapped in the time loop. He blames the groundhog at one point, but that was after a good deal of SanitySlippage [[spoiler: and killing it didn't break the loop anyway.]]

* ForeignRemake: Italian director Giulio Manfredonia [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0374358/ remade the film]] in 2004 using Italian and Spanish actors. The plot is extremely similar (the two major differences being that it happens in the Canary Islands and that the protagonist has to film storks) and has many scenes that follow the original exactly, but there are some notable differences (some of which make the Italian version less politically correct).
