Stripes (1981)

Stripes is a movie about two friends who quit their jobs and join the army. They are, however, up to no good and create all sorts of fun and chaos.

John (Bill Murray) and Russell (Harold Ramis)

At first I started watching this movie in background while scanning receipts, but then I ended up giving most of my attention to it. It was decent.

I suppose my only critique of the film involved the ending: the ending was silly because the protagonists got rewarded for a situation which they caused.

Overall, Stripes is largely in line with other comedy movies of it's era (1980s) and after seeing a handful of them I'd say they've grown on me. On that note, I recommend this movie to those who enjoy other comedy movies released during this time period.*

Ox (John Candy)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 96% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

*It should also be noted, for those that need to know, there are a couple short scenes with nudity (breasts).
