Don't forget your booties campers, because this week writer/comedian Drew Weisholtz stops by to watch the Bill Murray/Harold Ramis classic Groundhog Day for the first time. 

Join us as we discuss the cult of Murray, comfort movies, exactly how long Phil is stuck in the time loop and much more.

Follow Drew on Twitter and check out his writing on TheFW, GuySpeed and Antenna Mag. And if you're in the magazine aisle, be sure to check out his quips for US Weekly's "Fashion Police." 

Here's a video that posits that Phil was stuck in Punxsutawney for 12,395 days. Sounds about right. 

Drew is correct about Andie MacDowell's voice being dubbed over for her film debut in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan. The filmmakers didn't think her dulcet Southern tones fit the proper Englishwoman Jane and replaced her voice with that of the illustrious Glenn Close.
