From director Robert Altman comes this fresh and funny comedy about a bunch of surgeons in the Korean War. There isn't much of a plot to speak of; it's more like a bunch of skits strung together of the same theme that are often-times hilarious! The film does seem to get off track toward the end, but thinking twice, there was never a track in the first place. It picks up its pace at the end during the pivotal inter-army football game, which is the funniest part. Already a classic comedy favorite that inspired an extremely popular television series. Despite the newly acquired PG rating on the movie, it's not for kids.
