    We laugh, that we may not cry. But none of this philosophy comes close to the insane logic of "M*A*S*H," which is achieved through a peculiar marriage of cinematography, acting, directing, and writing.
  2. Clever camera setups, Altman's patented overlapping dialogue, wonderful sight gags and situations, and universally fine ensemble performances combine to make this one the most enjoyable war-themed films ever.

    M.A.S.H., one of America's funniest bloody films, is also one of its bloodiest funny films.

    Bitterly funny with perfect set-piece after perfect set-piece.
  5. A somewhat adolescent if stylish antiauthoritarian romp about an irreverent U.S. medical unit during the Korean war

    In the end M.A.S.H. succeeds, in spite of its glaring faults, because Gould, Sutherland, Skerritt, Jo Ann Pflug as the delicious Lt. Dish, and Roger Bowen, as the goof-off commanding officer who is bright enough to recognize his junior officers' medical competence and stay out of their way, are all believable and bitingly funny in their casual disdain for the Army.
  7. Although it is impudent, bold, and often very funny, it lacks the sense of order (even in the midst of disorder) that seems the special province of successful comedy.

I enjoy a wide range of comedies, from all kinds of different film eras, but MASH is absolute garbage. About half way through the movie, I hadn't laughed once, not even a forced laugh. The last half an hour of the film is the only funny part, so I'd suggest just skipping the absolute mess that is the first hour or so and watching the end. I really don't understand why this is recommended by almost everyone that has watched it. It just isn't funny. Full Review »

    Bold, funny, and filled with talent, the movie 'MASH' profits from the improvisation of the cast and the skill of director Robert Altman.

The antics of the surgeons seldom doesn't result in a laugh from me. I enjoyed this movie for its wit, style, and cinematography. Full Review »
