The first time I watched this movie, I was about 13 years old, and I loved it. Over the years I have watched this movie on more than one occasion and I still loved it. It inspired me to read the book, I watched it again, and guess what, I still loved it.

The movie like the book has a non-linear time line which may confuse some people, but if you concentrate you will have no problems following the story (even on the first viewing). The structure of the film is what gives it such a high re-watch value, each time you watch you'll find something new about it.

The stellar cast, give performances which vary in quality, with some of the smallest roles being extremely entertaining, but overall the ensemble delivers the goods. The direction is tight given the complex structure and the amount of material covered in the book.

This film always gets compared to *M*A*S*H*, which is also a good film, but I find Catch-22 provides more laughs while delivering, the more serious, anti-war message.

If you haven't watched this movie yet, I highly recommend it.
