What Goes Around, by Ben Seay

2 Feb

Hey Wood-chuck Chuckers, its Groundhog Day!  (it is as I write this at least)

This morning in Punxsutawney, ole’ Phil the groundhog saw his shadow.  Such a revelation was met with an anemic reaction since this winter has been quite mild.  So, why do we watch, why does this town put on this yearly pageant?  Perhaps even more puzzling- why has a comedy centered around this holiday only grown in acclaim and even reverence since it premiered back in 1993?  American literary theorist and legal scholar Stanley Fish named the film as one of the 10 best American films ever made.  What about it led the United States National Film Registry to deem it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” back in 2006 when it added the film to its ranks?   Now I love Bill Murray and Harold Ramis, but those guys don’t seem the type to hobnob with (what I’m assuming) must be a slightly snobby crowd in their new registry abode.  Roger Ebert is an avowed fan.  You get the picture.
