Young and Older Murray Successes

by SD Horn on 9/6/2013

Stripes is a Bill Murray classic 80s comedy, who thank goodness we don't need to rely upon him as a real soldier in today's Army. Thirty years after the fact, this film is still quotable and funny as ever. An older Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, while a bit more introspective a character, is also still funny 20-plus years later. I rather like the scene in the diner where calls himself "a" god, not THE G-d.

Product Overview

Enjoy this Classic Comedies Collection featuring Bill Murray with STRIPES: EXTENDED CUT, GHOSTBUSTERS and GROUNDHOG DAY: SPECIAL EDITION.

STRIPES: EXTENDED CUT: Bill Murray has joined the Army, and the Army will never be the same! When John Winger (Murray) loses his job, his car, his apartment and his girlfriend--all in one day--he decides he only has one option: volunteer for Uncle Sam. He talks his friend Russell (Harold Ramis) into enlisting with him. Where else, they figure, can they help save the world for democracy... and meet girls! John and Russell find basic training a snap: they are arrested twice, have endless run-ins with their drill sergeant (Warren Oates) and get into a big mess at a female mud-wrestling match. They even steal a top secret government vehicle to take some gorgeous female MPs on a date, and wind up behind the Iron Curtain. Stripes is outrageous fun! And that's the fact...Jack!

GHOSTBUSTERS: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis star in this supernatural comedy classic that will have you howling! When the University downsizes the para-psychology department, Doctors Venkman (Murray), Stantz (Aykroyd) and Spengler (Ramis) make the leap from scientists to Ghostbusters. Investigators and exterminators of paranormal pests! When the bewitching Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) discovers her refrigerator has become a portal into the spiritual dimension, our heroes come face to face with an ancient evil force with plans to raise hell in Manhattan!

GROUNDHOG DAY: SPECIAL EDITION: Do you ever have deja vu? Didn't you just ask me that? Bill Murray is at his wry, wisecracking best in this riotous romantic comedy about a weatherman caught in a personal time warp on the worst day of his life. Teamed with a relentlessly cheerful producer (Andie MacDowell) and a smart-aleck cameraman (Chris Elliott), TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is sent to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities. But on his way out of town, Phil is caught in a giant blizzard--which he failed to predict--and finds himself stuck in small-town hell. Just when things couldn't get worse, they get worse; Phil wakes the next morning to find it's Groundhog Day all over again...and again...and again. Cheered by critics as Bill Murray's best movie ever, Groundhog Day is "a comic time warp anyone should be happy to get stuck in." (Richard Corliss, Time Magazine)

Review [Groundhog] ...Clever comedy-fantasy keeps coming up with new twists and turns, even when you're sure there's nowhere else it can go. An ideal vehicle for Murray...

Review [Stripes] Stripes is an anarchic slob movie, a celebration of all that is irreverent, reckless, foolhardy, undisciplined, and occasionally scatological. It's a lot of fun. It comes from some of the same people involved in National Lampoon's Animal House, and could have been titled National Lampoon's Animal Army with little loss of accuracy.

At-A-Glance Film Reviews [Stripes] ...owes a lot to [Bill Murray's] laid back, slightly sneering comedy style...
Gene Shalit, NBC Today Show [Groundhog] ...Bill Murray's best screen performance.
Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle [Ghostbusters] The comedy here is solid gold, Bill Murray is in peak form, and the effects are a lot of fun.
