Comic '80s military romp has violence, nudity, language.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 18, 2015
The premise and star remain out of whack until the rambling, diffuse screenplay finally struggles beyond basic training.
September 29, 2014
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

Stripes will keep potential felons off the streets for two hours. Few people seem to be asking, these days, that movies do more.
April 1, 2008
An often hilarious film that provided Bill Murray with a perfect opportunity in which to display his comedic skills.

April 1, 2008
The balance of the film consists of time-tested commercial material, most of which is still working fine.
April 1, 2008
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 at his laugh-a-minute best....if there's a comedy classic, this is it

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

October 23, 2004
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.

Who called Ivan Reitman "the king of comedy" and what drugs were they taking?
| Original Score: 1/5
April 11, 2003
Am I the only person alive that realizes this movie blows? Bill Murray is a standout, nonetheless.

Basic training hadn't been this much fun since Laurel and Hardy joined up.
