While I guess that it's nigh on impossible to encapsulate all the goodness of Joseph Heller's book into a two hour movie, IMO, Mike Nichols and Buck Henry do a pretty good job with this adaptation. It's weird, funny, and poignant and captures the thrust of the novel. While I thought Alan Arkin (who usually annoys me) was perfect for the role of Yossarian, his performance was not consistently above par. There are also a few holes that could have been better patched up.

Well worth the watch.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Absolute classic and a must watch.

Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble, give a whistle,
And this'll help things turn out for the best, and...

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show,
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
