It is really cute..it has been so long since I have seen it, if I ever saw the whole thing. It had the Chicago boys Bill Murray,Harold Ramis, and the late John Candy in it. John LaRoquette looks absurdly young in this film. It is hard to believe this movie is close to 40 years old!!!! Shock, shock..my how time flies. Do you ever watch an older movie and are surprised how old it really is??

I am sure I watched it at some point but who knows when? I know I have seen part of it at least.

I love Stripes! It's been so long since I've seen that movie! Now I want to watch it. My kids like Bill Murray, but they have never seen any of his old stuff like Stripes or Meatballs or Caddyshack.

I think Caddyshack is on tonight..on the Sundance channel..or sometime soon. They were advertsing it.

@snowy22315 If I can stay awake long enough tonight, I might watch it! But I'm going to watch the NHL Hockey playoffs first!

I've watched an old movie and marveled at how young these stars looked, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Dean Martin, Elvis, Jerry Lewis? They all looked amazing, as young men!

@kobesbuddy Not sure about that..but some look good despite their age..Helen Mirren is close to 80. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin both look exceptionally good for their age.

Some of the really old movies look very dated now don't they?

Yes, but in this case the story was kind of enduring.

@snowy22315 I wasn't really referring to Stripes but even older ones where the language is sometimes very stilted. Or there might be a fantastic background but it's only a screen.

Sometimes I am surprised when I check on which year a film was released. Some seem so close in my mind.

Yes I thought this one was about 25 or 30 years old and it was even older than that!

Can't say that I'm familiar with this movie. I have to look it up online.
