Stripes (1981) on Hindsight is Horrifying

Bill Murray is in the Army now! It’s “Stripes” (1981)!

Oh, my GOD, Mr. Cotter, I want YOU!

What if Cheech and Chong joined the army? We’ll never know for sure, but Stripes gives us a close enough idea when Bill Murray talks Harold Ramis into becoming a grunt in this 80s comedy. John and Russell join the army, mud-wrestling shenanigans ensue, and our would-be heroes get the girls, but can they protect America’s newest super-weapon/shaggin’ wagon? Probably not, but it hardly matters when your main goal in life is to be the sharpest loofah in your platoon ever to graduate basic training.  

Sound off for Stripes!
