Movies Like Groundhog Day You Need To Watch

“Palm Springs” follows Nyles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti), two strangers stuck in a perpetual time loop that leaves them reliving a wedding reception over and over again. At first, the pair enjoy the infinite possibilities of their seeming immortality and the natural romance that follows. They crash planes, lounge about in pools, dance in biker clubs, and continually wreck Sarah’s sister’s reception. However, before too long Sarah longs for her old life and takes steps to free her and Nyles’ souls from their prison.

Intriguingly, “Palm Springs” greatest tactic is positing the events of the story from Sarah’s perspective. As it turns out, Nyles has been stuck in the same loop by himself for a long time, which means Sarah’s first night with him was definitely not his first night with her. Put it this way: Imagine if Nancy Taylor, the woman Bill Murray seduces in “Groundhog Day,” was suddenly thrust into the time loop with Phil Connors. Yeah, it’s kinda like that. Co-starring J.K. Simmons, “Palm Springs” may not be the most original film on this list, but it’s certainly one of the more engaging thanks to its winning performances, witty dialogue, and unique approach to its central conceit.
