    Did you see Groundhog Day or the Father of the Bride movies? They might be comedies from the 90s that you would enjoy.


I think you have psychic powers, Thjan. You're right! I saw Father of the Bride! I'm surprised, but yes, I saw it, and liked it. I have a soft spot in my heart for movies about fatherhood. I have two daughters. I don't remember the film in detail, and my vague recollection has nothing to do with humor, really. I vaguely remember it as a heartwarming tale about a father's love for his daughter.

I didn't see Groundhog Day, but I've heard good things about it. I saw the Xena episode which was sort of an homage to the Groundhog Day concept. And, off topic, I saw the 2014 Tom Cruise film, Edge of Tomorrow, which employs a time loop as the central concept. I've read the 1986 novel, Replay, by Ken Grimwood, which employs a time loop concept (not one day, but a repeating life). Did you know Groundhog Day's creators were threatened with legal action for allegedly copying the time-loop concept from 12:01 PM, a 1990 short film based on a 1973 prose story by Richard A. Lupoff?
