Groundhog Day

 

Woodstock, Illinois is a tiny hamlet known for a few things, most notably as the backdrop for one of the most critically acclaimed films of the last 20 years: Groundhog Day.

Religious leaders have hailed the film as one of the top spiritual movies of all time. The term "Groundhog Day" took on an entirely knew meaning: a metaphor for living the same day over and over again.

This year, Woodstock is gearing up for the 20th anniversary of the filming of the movie.

As Paris Schutz found out, Groundhog Day only gets better with age. Watch Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm for the story.
