Despite some brilliant direction, as always with Altman, M.A.S.H just isn’t that funny. I’m as down for offensive humor as the next guy, but snickering along with the bullies is one dimensional to me. This felt like an irreverent frat party, featuring one hazing after another, wanting you to enjoy it unironically.
I enjoyed the bumbling depiction of the army as a metaphor for American pointless recklessness overseas, but that’s about where my enjoyment ended. The humor is too “nudge wink” for me.
