If you were once a teen girl, or teen boy—screw gender norms— MASH was the game you played with your friends to decide what your future would be like. The initials stood for Mansion Apartment Shack and House and decided who you were going to marry, what car you would have. The important things. Anyway, Robert Altman’s 1970 movie of the same name has nothing to do with that. The film, is a satirical take on war, set during the Korean War, but released in the midst of Vietnam.
The film stars Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt, Elliott Gould and Robert Duvall, among others, as members of a medical unit who get into all sort of shenanigans too funny for the seriousness of war. One of the gags includes a surgery performed while drunk. Like a game of Operation gone horribly horribly wrong.
