Trust me, it was a whole lot funnier when you were ten.

Am I the only person alive that realizes this movie blows? Bill Murray is a standout, nonetheless.
| Original Score: 1/5

Who called Ivan Reitman "the king of comedy" and what drugs were they taking?

The premise and star remain out of whack until the rambling, diffuse screenplay finally struggles beyond basic training.

Stripes will keep potential felons off the streets for two hours. Few people seem to be asking, these days, that movies do more.

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

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

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

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

Comic '80s military romp has violence, nudity, language.

The first hour of Stripes is side-splittingly hilarious. Unfortunately, it fizzles a bit once Warren Oates' Sgt. "The Big Toe" Hulka disappears.
| Original Score: 4/5
