Deja Vu? Movies With Recurring Scenes

Updated on June 1, 2015

The Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

The Edge of Tomorrow follows a soldier who is thrown into battle against an alien force. In the original battle, he destroys a certain kind of alien that gives him the power to reset the day every time he dies. It just so happens to be the day that they are invading France to destroy the aliens once and for all.

Since the aliens were able to reset the day previously, they are waiting for the human forces and we get the invasion scene over and over again throughout the course of the movie. It's a little tiresome, but there enough different takes to keep it interesting.

Vantage Point (2008)

This one follows the view from different character's point of view pertaining to a bombing and attempted assassination of the American President. Dennis Quaid plays one of the President's most valued Secret Service agents who works his way through the mystery to win the day.

If you were in the theater when this one first came out, you'll remember the collective groan as the scene started over again for the fourth time. The fifth time, you were ready to get up and leave. Thankfully, the sixth time raced past and into the end.

Groundhog Day (1993)

Bill Murray plays Phil Connors, a weatherman who gets sent down to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover the annual groundhog festival that the town throws. With an eye on an promotion, Connors is less than pleased to be covering something so regional.

Mother Nature and the forces of time coincide to make him relive groundhog day over and over again until he finally turns from a selfish oaf into a selfless romantic. We never do find out why the day reset over and over again, but it does have a happy ending.


Source Code (2011)

Jake Gyllenhaal plays a soldier who wakes up inside someone else's body that must solve the riddle of who sets a bomb aboard a commuter train. He discovers that he has suffered a near fatal injury and that his consciousness is able to be inserted back in time as part of an experimental government program. Time after time he fails and heads back into the inner workings of his own mind.

The movie moves between Gyllenhaal's character's interactions with the soldiers running the experimental government program and the scene that plays out on board the commuter train as he aims to stop the bomber.

Clue (1985)

Clue is a borderline one since the only recurring scene is the one at the end after all the minor characters have been killed off. Tim Curry's character takes us through three different sequences of who might have done it between the main characters.

In the end, the butler did it. But he is foiled by Mr. Green's character who is working for J. Edgar Hoover's government agency. It's a pretty good comedy with some entertaining acting.
