I always thought Stripes was a jailhouse movie.
I’ve seen the movie but in bits & pieces. I did get to play golf @ Industry Hills golf course where the movie was filmed.
WOW John! What a scathing review!! Almost scalded my eyeballs reading it.
Personally, I loved the movie! It can’t have been 30 years though. I thought it was a good ensemble cast and Bill Murray and his brother Brian Doyle Murray were great! Brian actually wrote the script.
THE BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!
the one liners were never ending;
“thats the worst hat ever,if you buy this they must give you a bowl of soup,but it looks good on you though”
“the world needs ditch diggers too”
“don’t belittle yourself judge’ you’re a hell of a slouch”
“hey whitey, wheres your hat?”
“you must have been something before electricity”
they go on & on
30 years—-i can’t believe it—30 long years
I sure am glad they don’t make mirrors that laugh.
Joe—-stop killing gophers all ready—–licence or no licence.
There is no money (lira/euro, whatever) in it. Go peddle
some windows and doors—-that’s where the big bucks
will be found.
Glad to hear your OK Chips, I had started to worry about you, actually for the past year or so—glad your Ok though.
This steak still has the marks where the jockey whipped it.
Stripes is one of my other favorite movies. It was the very first one that I bought on DVD. I didn’t join the digital age until 2002.
Most famous golf scene from a movie——-
Old, Old Barry Fitzgerald is the Parish Paster who is talked into
going golfing with Bing Crosby and Frank McHugh—2 young priests–
They trick him into taking a shot from a sand trap—from a cloud of
flying sand Crosby lobs a ball up onto the green where McHugh kicks
it into the hole———–
Fitzgerald jumps up and down screamng “It’s in the hole, it’s in the hole”.
No, I’m getting me all mixed up, ignore this paragraph..
Crosby turns to Fitzgerald and says you did it Father you holed out—-and Fitzgerald says, with that impish grin of his, “And, it’s the first time I ever had a caddy in my hand”.———X-rated stuff in Oscar winning “Going My Way”.
Sister Mary Theresa, God rest her soul, must have had good reason John, you must have been a terror.
“License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit – ever. They’re like the Viet Cong – Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that’s all she wrote.”
Sorry, I am already an addict. I didn’t pick up the game until I was in my 30’s but at 45 I am still attracted by those fleeting bouts of greatness. A birdie or par here and again. Mostly I score 8,8,8,4,8,8,3,8,8,8,8,5,8,8,8,3,8. My last scorecard. A grand total of 116 strokes for a par 72 course. LOL
Well I’m alright and don’t nobody worry about me.
Michael—you gotta get out to Blockbuster, rent the movie and
sit back and enjoy. If you don’t like it send me the bill and the letter from your attorney. I will see what I can do to make it up to you. How could you live all these years and not see Caddy Shack ?? It’s a puzzlement !!!!!
CTF—-Frank Sinatra once tipped me $5 (a fin back then—-1944) for delivering some candy to him. Had to fight my way through a hundred bobby-sockers to get to him, but it was worth it. And just to think—–those cute, lovely, pretty, adorable, bobby-soxers are all grouchy old grandmas now. It doesn’t seem fair.
Too Phat—me too.
Bill Murray came into my place, by pure chanch, a few months after I opened in 2002, he was a really funny and nice as could be, left the waitress a $50.00 tip.
I loved Caddy Shack when it first came out and still do. Anytime I catch it on I watch it.
