Decades after its release, Ivan Reitman has revisited the military comedy Stripes with an extended cut of the film adding twenty minutes to the runtime thanks to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Bill Murray stars as John Winger who loses his job, his car, his apartment and his girlfriend – all in one day. His solution to the desolation of his life is to hitch up with the Army, talking his friend Russell (Harold Ramis) into enlisting with him. John convinces Russell that they’ll get in shape, travel the world, and, most importantly, meet girls.
The DVD will be presented in widescreen and will contain a new audio commentary by director Ivan Reitman. The DVD also contains a new documentary and six deleted scenes.
The DVD will arrive at the barracks on June 7th and carry a $19.94 suggested list price.
