Audience Reviews for Article 99


Wasnt bad, I thought it would be alot better considering the cast. Loved when Keifer donned the floppy hat as his father did in M.A.S.H

A very entertaining film about the innovative means by which doctors in a veterans hospital try and actually help the patients,while being thwarted by bureaucratic red tape at every turn.
