  • M*A*S*H (1970) Comedy PG

    With the release of Robert Altman's M*A*S*H in 1970, a new form of comedy was brought to the big screen that would forever change the face of cinema. Altman's insistence on overlapping the characters' dialogue, photographing the film with fog filters and sloppy zooms, and a frank combination of jarringly graphic surgery footage with cynical humor, resulted in a timeless comedy that reflects the American counterculture's growing distrust of religion and government in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Politics aside, M*A*S*H is a classic motion picture that skyrocketed Altman to the upper ranks of Hollywood directors. Based on the novel by Richard Hooker, M*A*S*H follows a group of Mobile Army Surgical Hospital officers as they perform surgery and pass the time just miles from the front lines of the Korean Conflict. Led by the sardonic Captains "Hawkeye" Pierce (Donald Sutherland) and "Trapper" John McIntyre (Elliott Gould), the film has the feel of an absurd three-ring circus, and is composed of a series of vignettes rather than a traditionally unfolding narrative, creating that freewheeling feel so unique to early-'70s cinema.

    Starring Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould, Tom Skerritt, Sally Kellerman, Robert Duvall, Gary Burghoff, Jo Anne Pflug

    Directed by Robert Altman

  • Meet the Parents (2000) Comedy PG-13

    Review: by Dustin Putman

    A Jewish male nurse (Ben Stiller) plans to ask his live-in girl friend (Teri Polo) to marry him. However, he learns that her strict father (Robert DeNiro) expects to be asked for his daughter's hand before she can accept. Thus begins the visit from Hell as the two travel to meet Mom (Blythe Danner) and Dad, who turns out to be former CIA with a lie detector in the basement. Coincidentally, a sister (Nicole DeHuff) also has announced her wedding to a young doctor (Thomas McCarthy). Of course everything that can go wrong, does, including the disappearance of Dad's beloved Himalayan cat, Jinxie.
