Critic Reviews of "Stripes"Washington PostDecember 18, 2015
The premise and star remain out of whack until the rambling, diffuse screenplay finally struggles beyond basic training.TIME MagazineOctober 05, 2008
Stripes will keep potential felons off the streets for two hours. Few people seem to be asking, these days, that movies do more.Chicago ReaderApril 01, 2008
The balance of the film consists of time-tested commercial material, most of which is still working fine.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
[Reitmam] manages a reasonable success rate at pulling off the numerous verbal and sight gags with which the script is peppered.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
An anarchic slob movie, a celebration of all that is irreverent, reckless, foolhardy, undisciplined, and occasionally scatological. It's a lot of fun.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Mr. Murray hasn't yet reached the point at which his routines can be sustained for more than 10 minutes at a time. But he has achieved a sardonically exaggerated calm that can be very entertaining.Common Sense MediaApril 26, 2016
Comic '80s military romp has violence, nudity, language.Antagony & EcstasySeptember 29, 2014
Benefits immensely from being graded on a curve: it's no Ghostbusters, but it's no Police Academy either.CinePassionSeptember 25, 2009
Murray's insouciant Sixties clowning survives being parachuted into the EightiesTV GuideApril 01, 2008
An often hilarious film that provided Bill Murray with a perfect opportunity in which to display his comedic skills.Film4April 01, 2008
With a cast that consists largely of Saturday Night Live veterans, laughs are guaranteed, not least from a hilarious Murray.Fantastica DailyOctober 21, 2005
The first hour of Stripes is side-splittingly hilarious. Unfortunately, it fizzles a bit once Warren Oates' Sgt. "The Big Toe" Hulka disappears.
