As you know, Groundhog Day is celebrated on February 2 in North America and Canada. At this time, many television channels in these countries once again show the comedy of the same name by Harold Ramis, in which Bill Murray and Andy MacDowell played the main roles.
However, in the 20 years that have passed since the movieing of the picture, no one has explained the reason why its character Phil Connors was stuck in a time loop. The popular American actor Eddie Diesen decided to correct this mistake.
It turned out that the director simply decided not to use the part of the script, which told about the difficult relationship between Connors and his ex-girlfriend. Before the trip to Pennsylvania, the hero said goodbye to her very coldly, and the offended woman with the help of black magic put a curse on him, which could be destroyed, as it should be in fairy tales, only with the kiss of love.
It also turned out that, according to the original idea, Phil Connors should have been stuck in Groundhog Day for as long as 10 thousand years.
Why Harold Ramis made the decision to abandon the episodes with his girlfriend is not specified.
