Stripes (1981)

Rating: ***
Cast: Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, John Candy, John Larroquette

An amusing comedy about two guys at the ends of their ropes (Bill Murray and Harold Ramis) who give it all up and join the army. But when their wacky pranks end up incapacitating their drill sergeant, they have to make it through the rest of boot camp on their own, or suffer going through it all again! There's also a next generation military weapon in the guise of a Winnebago that somehow gets involved at the end. Good fun stuff.
