For me, M*A*S*H contains as much depression as humor.

It's the first real film of the 1970s.

This is still watchable for the verve of the ensemble acting and dovetailing direction, but some of the crassness leaves a sour aftertaste.

In the end M.A.S.H. succeeds, in spite of its glaring faults.

It shows Altman's stylistic signature in embryonic form.

One of the reasons M*A*S*H is so funny is that it's so desperate.

Although it is impudent, bold, and often very funny, it lacks the sense of order (even in the midst of disorder) that seems the special province of successful comedy.
