But, despite its loose ties to the Hollywood blockbuster, where a weatherman. played Bill Murray. finds himself inexplicably living the same day over and over again, the film fell flat with many viewers.
Many jumped on to social media to ridicule the party’s failed efforts moments after its broadcast on prime time TV.
One man tweeted: “Just saw a Lib Dem political broadcast, that was so awful I've joined UKIP.”
Another thundered: “New Lib Dem political broadcast is awful, so boring! Makes me think they're not even trying anymore.”
While a third unhappy viewer slated: “This Lib Dem party political broadcast on ITV is a bit of a boring "groundhog day" remake.”

The broadcast is loosely based on the 1993 film Groundhog Day
Undeterred by the criticism, the Lib Dems released the film onto their website, along with a statement which reads: “Brexit. Trump. Rise of the far right. The refugee crisis. Racism on our streets. How many times have you woken up with that sinking feeling?
“Don't shrug your shoulders. Don't look the other way. Do something about it.”
Some did praise the film, which emphasises the party's opposition to the Government's agenda.
One person wrote: “That Lib Dem party political broadcast on ITV just now was pretty good, not often they get my attention.”
Another said: “I just saw a Lib Dem party political broadcast that was kind of…good?”
