Stripes (1981)

Stripes

Director: Ivan Reitman

Writers: Len Blun & Daniel Goldberg and Harold Ramis

I love Bill Murray (who doesn’t) but I actually just saw this for the first time surprisingly.  The first 2/3rds are pretty good, mainly because of Murray, but the last act turns into a bit of a mess.  I thought it was pretty OK overall and for me it got by on the charms of Murray.  But once they complete training and it turns into a kind of kidnap and rescue picture and forgets to be a comedy it kind of loses me.
