View Full Version : Groundhog Day - movie question

ok, I've been wondering this for a long time. In the movie Bill Murray relives the same day over and over again Ad nauseam. How long would it take a non piano player (Bill) to learn how to play as well as he did at the end of the movie. It seems he may have taken lessons for no more then a few hours a day, with no practice in between (I assume).

Any piano players out there?

Thinking out loud.
10 years to learn to play well.
1 lesson a week x 10 years (with practice)
520 lessons = 520 days
about 1.5 years in the movie?

How Long Does Bill Murray Spend in Groundhog Day? (http://www.wolfgnards.com/index.php/2009/06/16/how-long-does-billy-murray-spend-in-grou)

Which puts us at the grand total of 3176 repeated Groundhog days, or 453 weeks, or 105 months, or 8.7 years. Precisely, 8 years, 8 months, and 16 days.

I've seen the Movie over 100 times...it's a favorite.
