Stripes 1981

From Amazon: Bill Murray was heading toward a career peak on the back of comedies such as this one from 1981, the second film in his ongoing collaboration with director Ivan Reitman (the two went on to make Ghostbusters). Murray plays a chronic loser who joins the army and fails to find a fan for his ironic sensibilities in his by-the-book sergeant (Warren Oates). When push comes to shove, however, the smirking hero takes charge of his ragtag unit and turns them into fighting machines, albeit to the rhythm of hit songs by Manfred Mann and Sly Stone. The film is occasionally funny, but it mostly plays like any one of a dozen underachieving comedies...

Stripes Movie Review by Movie Addict (9/29/2007)

John Winger (Bill Murray): We're all very different people. We're not Watusi, we're not Spartans, we're Americans. With a capital "A", huh? And you know what that means? Do you? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts....

Stripes Movie Review by Zara (4/8/2007)

I never really found this movie to be as funny as most people did. It was mildly amusing at best and some of the better moments in the movie don't belong to its star. Murray was locked into being as outrageous as possible by the time that this movie was made, so while the camera focuses on him, he's still more annoying...
