"C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin."

Since it is a classic comedy, I had some rather high expectations and it was indeed pretty good but it was still nothing mind-blowing. It is something I noticed witg those 80's classic comedies such as 'The Jerk', 'Animal House', 'Plane, trains and Automobiles', 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' or 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'. Everybody says they are awesome and hilarious but when I watch them, even t... read more

Description: Thanks to a run of bad luck and go-nowhere jobs, John convinces Russell to join the army so they can get in shape, likening it to a health spa. Once in boot camp, wiseguy John tangles with his by-the-book Sgt. and becomes the unofficial leader for his platoon, made up mostly of other misfits and assorted losers. After somehow making i ...

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"John Winger's use of the phrase "We are the wretched refuse" to describe how the platoon was made up of men from around the world is a reference to a poem, "The New Colossus", by the nineteenth-century American poet Emma Lazarus. "The New Colossus", describing the Statue of Liberty, appears on a plaque at the base of the statue. The EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle was built from a 1973-1978 GMC Motor Home. "

"4.8. Bill Murray is in the army now. Kuten missä tahansa vastaavalla tavalla väsyneemmässä komediassaan, Murrayn pelkkä läsnäolo ja luontainen koominen olemus ja karisma riittävät nostamaan vaivaantuneen kohellukseen kertakatsottavaksi illanvietteeksi."

"4.8. TV Mihinpä muuhun sitä sivariviikonloppua käyttäisi kuin amerikkalaisen, kylmän sodan aikaisen armeijakomedian katseluun? Leffa alkaa suht lupaavasti kun Murrayn näyttelemä, samaistuttava luuseri ja tämän samanlainen kaveri esitellään. Sitten nämä menevät armeijaan hassuttelemaan. Joitakin ihan hyviä läppiä leffasta löytyy, mutta aikakaudelle tyypillinen propaganda ärsyttää."

Anyway, this was still pretty good. You have Bill Murray giving his usual performance full of dry humor and a competent supporting cast (Harold Ramis, Warren Oates, Sean Young, Judge Reinhold, Bill Paxton). Basically, it lampoons the Army, its instutions and rules and pretty much like ” read more

For fans of Bill Murray's brand of smartass humour (seen in Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, etc), Stripes is a must-watch. Additionally, if you're a fan of classic '80s comedies, you cannot afford to miss Stripes. Hell, if you have a sense of humour, then you definitely have to watch Stripes. Directed by Ivan Reitman (Animal House, Kindergarten Cop) and starring the likes of Murray, Harold Ramis, John Candy, Warren Oates and even Judge Reinhold, this is primo '80s comedy entertainment. Admittedly, there are pacing problems and the comedy is at times hit and miss, but Stripes packs one hell of a wallop whenever it does hit, resu” read more
