VERDICT – 1/5
1) Idiosyncratic adventures of an outlandish army medical unit during the Korean War.
2) The fumbling P.A. announcements at regular intervals are the only funny part of the entire movie.
1) This writing is nowhere like Catch-22 (1970) which is a far better black-comedy with a military backdrop.
2) Robert Altman’s direction is sloppy and the poor-quality Panavision cinematography is not helping either.
