At the end of Groundhog Day (***SPOILER ALERT***) Bill Murray's character finally makes it to February 3rd the night that he gets Andie McDowell to spend the night with him.

Does he finally break free from his neverending Groundhog Day because he won her love, or did he win her love because he achieved nirvana and was finally allowed to continue his existence?

Why Does Bill Murray's Groundhog Day Finally End?

I'd like to think it's the latter - and that Andie McDowell just has such high standards that it wasn't happening until he absolutely crushed understanding life.
