Time Travel TheoriesEdit
The phrase "Groundhog Day" has entered common use as a reference to an unpleasant situation that continually repeats, or seems to.
Soon after the movie's release in February 1993, the term "Groundhog Day" was widespread among the military, referring to unpleasant, unchanging, repetitive situations. Rangers deployed for Operation Gothic Serpent in Somalia that year enjoyed the film because they saw it as a metaphor of their own situation where they waited long periods between raids and had monotonous long days. In 2007, "Groundhog Day" was noted as American military slang for any day of a tour of duty in Iraq.
A stage musical version of the film is scheduled to premiere in 2016.
The video game Life is Strange has many references to the film.
