Stripes is a 1981 comedy starring Bill Murray as John Winger, a prankster who joins the Army after his life hits rock bottom. On one particularly bad day, Winger loses his job, his girlfriend, and his car. The man feels hopeless. After seeing a recruitment add for the Army on television, the slacker decides to turn his life around and join up. The Army is an odd choice for Winger. He's always been anti-authority and can't help but joke around. Winger and his friend Russell Ziskey (Harold Ramis) think the Army could be a good way to jump-start their careers and maybe meet some girls, but they'll have to straighten up if they don't want to get kicked out. What begins as a last-ditch effort to turn their lives around turns into a high-stakes gambit that takes them overseas and puts them in the line of fire. Winger and Ziskey just might make it as Army men, despite themselves. Stripes is a classic American comedy, featuring celebrated comedian Bill Murray in one of his earliest roles.moreless
