"I still can't believe I found this great 3 DVD box set at a store(wont tell name!) for only 4.99 + tax brand new and factory sealed!!! Such a great deal,the whole set cost me less than a single sale priced DVD!!! I bought it for Ghostbusters and Stripes(this DVD has BOTH original and extended cuts),but I liked Grounghog Day too after I watched it!!! Each DVD is loaded with great extras as well to boot,but if you own the original 1999 Ghostbusters Special Edition(now a collector's item!)DVD keep it,the version here has slightly different extras than that one(the Live commentary that was on the 1999 version is NOT here(only audio of the same commentary,this DVD is also the exact same one with the Ghostbusters 2-pack by the way just to let you know!),but it still has some great extras though,so it's only a minor qibble!!! Still a great set of comedy gems starring Bill Murray and more!!! A+"
Three of Bill Murray's Best

"This set includes three of Bill Murray's best movies:
Stripes, a military film from 1981 with Harold Ramis and John Candy, was directed by Ivan Reitman and has a 6.8 rating from IMDb.
Ghost Busters from 1984 was also directed by Ivan Reitman and features Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, who jointly wrote the imaginative script, and Sigourney Weaver. Ghost Busters currently carries a 7.8 rating from IMDb.
Groundhog Day, the best of the three, was released in 1993 and carries an 8.1 rating from IMDb, which also rates it as #160 on its list of the 250 best movies. Groundhog Day was directed by Harold Ramis, who also co-wrote the outstanding screenplay with Danny Rubin. Andie MacDowell is excellent as the foil for Murray in this film in which Murray plays a self-absorbed TV weatherman who seems to take forever to learn life's lessons after failing miserably, but in the end learning that the Earth does not revolve around him and that showing kindness to strangers is a winning strategy in the end. This is a film that I never tire of watching."
