Alexa Channels the Movie "Goundhog Day" for Upcoming Event of the Same Name

Groundhog Day (February 2nd) may be a silly event, but the movie of the same name happens to be one of my all time favorites. Starring comic genius Bill Murray and co-starring Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliot, is a Harold Ramis masterpiece. If you've never seen this movie, you need to - right now. Amazon has it available for streaming:

Essentially, a weatherman (Bill Murray) is trapped in a personal time warp on the worst day of his life. Hilarity ensues but not without a little tug of the heartstrings now and then for the ladies.

If you've never watched this movie, this latest Alexa capability won't mean as much. So, again -- WATCH THE MOVIE.


Amazon, on Wednesday, added some extra capabilities around Groundhog Day the event, but in reverence for the movie which includes some great movie quotes.

Here's some things you can ask Alexa right now...

“Alexa, Happy Groundhog Day!”
“Alexa, Give me a Groundhog Day movie quote.”
“Alexa, Do you ever have deja vu?”
“Alexa, Who is Punxsutawney Phil?”
“Alexa, Will the groundhog see his shadow?”

And, when February 2nd actually arrives...

"Alexa, Good morning!” - Alexa will answer: "Good morning! Rise and shine! And don’t forget your booties, because it’s cold out there today.”"
“Alexa, Did the groundhog see his shadow?”

Amazon continues to improve Alexa. Even small things like this make Alexa both valuable and fun.
