The casualties of Jack’s striving include his best friend, an ex-girlfriend plus her date, and the girl of Jack’s dreams, Dina (Olivia Munn), a war journalist. Luckily for him, he’ll get a do-over of the day and a few more chances to make things right.

No one learns anything. Sam Claflin gets the girl. The Groundhog Day trope isn’t utilized to full effect. Set against an enviable classical music score, this romp provides a junk-food-esque high, perfect for the season.
