Here, you'll find a list of time loop movies if you're in the mood to see a character try to get things just right while repeating the same day. Movies where the same day repeats over and over again allow you to watch how characters recognize their mistakes and attempt to rectify them. In many ways, time loop movies provide the ultimate fantasy. Don't we all wish we could sometimes go back and undo past errors and indiscretions? As they say - hindsight is 20/20.
What are some of the best films featuring time loops? The classic Groundhog Day is one of the most famous of the genre, a '90s comedy featuring Bill Murray navigating the titular holiday repetitively. Many holiday films - such as 12 Dates of Christmas and Christmas Every Day - play on the desire for the perfect holiday by allowing characters to get a do-over during the season.
Other good time loop movies include 12:01 PM, Before I Fall, and Edge of Tomorrow. This list of time loop movies also includes films that feature time loops or characters repeating the same events, like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Doctor Strange, and About Time.
