Looking for something to watch on a Saturday night in the month of Elul? At 7:43 PM find some grape juice/wine, a candle, and spices, say or listen to the Havdalah blessings, then settle in for a movie. Here are some of my favorites for the season, pure Hollywood.

Groundhog Day -- an obnoxious TV personality is trapped in the same day over and over again, and tries to figure out how to live that day right (Bill Murray, Andy McDowell)
