"Attention. Tonight's movie has been "MASH". Follow the zany antics of our combat surgeons as they cut and stitch their way along the front lines. Operating as bombs... Operating as bombs and bullets burst around them, snatching laughs and love between amputations and penicillin." Cheers, mate. 97/100

I've never been a fan of the television show (although this is nothing like it), and I've never read the book. I'm also not a huge Robert Altman fan, so I had no idea what to expect going into this. It's not bad, Elliott Gould and Donald Sutherland are great as they almost always are and it has a few laughs, but just not quite my cup of tea.

"There's a time and place for everything damnit!" Considered by many as one of the greatest comedies/films in film related lists.

Highlights were the recorded love scene of Major Frank Burns (Robert Duvall) while Captain "Hawkeye" Pierce (Donald Sutherland) insults him after the incident and taking blackmail pictures of the Col. in Japan. The football game just prolonged the film and most of the humor just weren't funny at all. As always, not much of an impact coming from a director which just doesn't make entertaining films though it's impact is everlasting. M*A*S*H may have been one of the best movies/comedies in various list, unfortunately it doesn't …

The staff of a mobile army surgical hospital work and play near the front lines of the Korean war. Robert Altman's satire was released just as the tide of public opinion had began to turn against America's presence in Vietnam and is clearly an analogy for the war, but unlike most other stories rooted in that particular conflict, M*A*S*H doesn't have any real moral message or even plot to get your teeth into. It's a loose collection of sketches in which double act Elliot Gould and Donald Sutherland crack wise, play practical jokes, football and golf in between stints in surgery. And that's it. It's never even particularly funny; more mildly amusing than laugh out loud funny (although Roger Bowen's distinctly unmilitary camp commander did raise a few chuckles from me) but it is always …
