Ever experienced déjà vu? Sure, it might just be a weird feeling of a repeated experience, or maybe it’s a glitch in the Matrix, we’ll never know. But movies and TV shows have taken that concept even further over the decades, creating a genre all its own, one focused on the idea of a time loop, where a character experiences not just a moment or a feeling on repeat, but entire days or more, stuck, over and over. While it sounds ominous, sometimes the interpretation can be funny.
