STRIPES is a lot like most early 1980's comedies. However, there are a few things that set it apart. First, there's Bill Murray. Lately Murray has been leading towards a more serious avenue in his career. However, Murray got his start in comedy and STRIPES illustrates why. Secondly, the film has a great supporting cast including Harold Ramis and John Candy. Finally, the film was directed by Ivan Reitman and most things that Reitman writes and directs are at least a par above the average. One last note, the film doesn't have too much foul language and the only violence is the cartoony kind. However, the film does contain a lot of nudity (most of which was unnecessary) which prevents the movie from being much fun for the whole family. Other than that, STRIPES is a comedy "star".
