In honor of Harold Ramis, Nitehawk presents one of our favorite films…STRIPES!

Wallowing in dead-end jobs and failed relationships, John Winger (Bill Murray) convinces his pal Russell Ziskey (Harold Ramis) into joining the army…you know, for kicks. And while they find themselves under the nose of impatient Sergeant Hulke and a platoon of misfits, they all band together and start doing pretty well. It’s not until the two friends fall for two pretty MPs, steal a military vehicle, and accidentally wind up in Soviet Territory that things start to get real…funny. Amazingly made with full cooperation with the U.S. Army, for our money, Stripes is one of the best comedies in cinema!
