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.

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

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

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.
