God and movies

This could be as well Punxsutawney instead of Winston-Salem, but at least this town has a school of the arts.
Remember the movie directed by Ramis, where Bill Murray wakes up to the same lame February 2nd, never leaving that dreadful town and trapped forever in the hell that small American towns can be?
Of course that the movie is used as an explanation or allegory to religions. The subject of cycles of life, the redemption after sin, the purpose after a search and the self-forgiveness are all ideas found in all religions and myths.
Yet, at what point is this just an exercise in wishful thinking? Trying to find depth in a funny cult movie where only our desires, hopes and regrets force meaning out of a circular tale.
At least we have School of the Arts, I am telling you.
