Bill Murray has joined the Army, and the Army will never be the same! When John Winger (Murray) loses his job, his car, his apartment and his girlfriend, all in one day, he decides he only has one option: volunteer for Uncle Sam. He talks his friend Russell (Harold Ramis) into enlisting with him. Where else, they figure, can they help save the world for democracy and meet girls! John and Russell find basic training a snap: they are arrested twice, have endless run-ins with their drill sergeant (Warren Oates) and get into a big mess at a female mud-wrestling match. They even steal a top secret government vehicle to take some gorgeous female MPs on a date, and wind up behind the Iron Curtain.

A Comedy Classic That's Earned It's STRIPES - Stripes review by Spoons

Spoiler Alert

I first saw Stripes way back in 1981 upon it's cinema release and thought it was ok but that's because I was only 15 and probably not mature enough to appreciate a lot of the gags and dialogue. Having just visited it again I can say without hesitation that this is a true comedy classic, absolutely hilarious with actors that went on to become comedy legends. The Graduation Day sequence had me in absolute hysterics. They can't seem to make comedies like this anymore and if you haven't seen it, then please check it out, you won't be disappointed.
