5. Groundhog Day
This is a different kind of romantic comedy – a more subtle sub-genre of rom-com. This Bill Murray and Andie McDowell flick is a story of a TV weatherman who gets stuck in a day. Every morning he wakes up, he wakes up to the same radio broadcast, the same snow and everything just keeps repeating. Only he does a few things differently and by doing them differently he is able to alter certain things. At first he is annoyed and scared, later he learns to live with it and makes the most out of it. When he realizes that he has plenty of time in his hands, he begins to spend time learning new skills and art, and becomes a better person, altogether, by the end of the movie. It has places where you will have fits of laughter and places where you would feel emotional to the core.
