The next morning, much to Phil's surprise, he wakes up again on Grounhog Day, with everyone else repeating the same actions as the previous day. This occurs day after day after day.
After a few days, Phil realizes that he can get away with just about whatever he wants since no one but him will remember what happened the following day. He ends up robbing a bank and seducing a beautiful woman, with no longterm consequences. He finds he's unable to seduce his friend Rita (MacDowell) though, no matter how hard he tries.
After awhile he gets tired of having the same day repeating, so he commits suicide, but he still wakes up the next morning at 6AM as he had every other time. He attempts suicide six more times, still to no effect. Eventually he confides his frustration to Rita, who tells him to try to make the most of his predicament by helping others. He takes her advice, helping as many people in need as he can, learning to play the piano, speak fluent French, and make ice sculptures. Eventually, after concluding the day with a big festivity hosted by him, he wakes up on February 3.
Here's the original trailer.
Here's a clip of Phil playing music on his last day.
