Groundhog Day - How about this?

Rather unexpectedly, I saw this movie "Groundhog Day" which later turned out to be lovely and inspiring. It gave me a kick of a different kind - I was beginning to believe that, may be, there can be no more new/different good stories to be told. For once, I'm happy to be so wrong!

It is the story of a TV weatherman going through the same day - which he thinks is his worst - over and over again. He is petrified, tries to misuse the 'gift', gets bored, ends his life several times only to wake up the next morning going through the same day again. He eventually accepts the situation, decides to make the best out of it, and finally, wakes up to a lovely morning of 'tomorrow' that he so longed.

See Wikipedia - Groundhog Day (1993) Movie for the details.
