This classic American comedy blends together military incompetence and Cold War politics. Hard-luck cabbie John Winger (Bill Murray) – directionless after being fired from his job and dumped by his girlfriend – enlists in the U.S. Army with his close friend, Russell Ziskey (Harold Ramis). After his barely satisfactory performance in basic training, the irreverent Winger emerges as the figurehead for a ragtag band of Army misfits. However, he threatens to cause an international scandal when he inadvertently commandeers a military assault vehicle behind enemy lines in Czechoslovakia, that almost sets off World War III.
