Benefits immensely from being graded on a curve: it's no Ghostbusters, but it's no Police Academy either.

Murray's insouciant Sixties clowning survives being parachuted into the Eighties

The balance of the film consists of time-tested commercial material, most of which is still working fine.

With a cast that consists largely of Saturday Night Live veterans, laughs are guaranteed, not least from a hilarious Murray.

[Reitmam] manages a reasonable success rate at pulling off the numerous verbal and sight gags with which the script is peppered.

The first hour of Stripes is side-splittingly hilarious. Unfortunately, it fizzles a bit once Warren Oates' Sgt. "The Big Toe" Hulka disappears.

Murray's initial transition from the small screen is a classic.

One major difference between the slob comedies of yesteryear and the ones of today is that of simple craftsmanship. As in, Stripes has some.

Murray's insouciant performance carries the movie and has inspired countless imitators, from the young Tom Hanks to Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell.

An anarchic slob movie, a celebration of all that is irreverent, reckless, foolhardy, undisciplined, and occasionally scatological. It's a lot of fun.

Mr. Murray hasn't yet reached the point at which his routines can be sustained for more than 10 minutes at a time. But he has achieved a sardonically exaggerated calm that can be very entertaining.
