Shaggy, formless, amiable comedy – less a coherent movie than a series of droll, anarchic vignettes.  Young Donald Sutherland has got to be the most charming son-of-a-bitch on record, and as cheerfully defiant antiheroes go, his Hawkeye Pierce is one for the books.  M*A*S*H doesn’t really go anywhere, but it sure has a lot of fun getting there – and I guess that’s probably enough.
