    Synopsis


    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    With an insane asylum standing in for everyday society, Milos Forman's 1975 film adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel is a comically sharp indictment of the Establishment urge to conform. Playing crazy to avoid prison work detail, manic free spirit Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) is sent to the state mental hospital for evaluation. There he encounters a motley crew of mostly voluntary inmates, including cowed mama's boy Billy (Brad Dourif) and silent Native American Chief Bromden (Will Sampson), presided over by the icy Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher). Ratched and McMurphy recognize that each is the other's worst enemy: an authority figure who equates sanity with correct behavior, and a misfit who is charismatic enough to dismantle the system simply by living as he pleases. McMurphy proceeds to instigate group insurrections large and small, ranging from a restorative basketball game to an unfettered afternoon boat trip and a tragic after-hours party with hookers and booze. Nurse Ratched, however, has the machinery of power on her side to ensure that McMurphy will not defeat her. Still, McMurphy's message to live free or die is ultimately not lost on one inmate, revealing that escape is still possible even from the most oppressive conditions. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi

      This classic is a MUST have for any moviegoers home collection. It's classic Nicholson at his best, and most psychotic! For those who have never seen the film (seriously???), this is where the famous "Nurse Ratched" is found in all her glory, played beautifully by Louise Fletcher. This film also has other famous names like Danny Devito, Christopher Lloyd, and Brad Dourif are also in there. You really , really, really need this film. It's an old classic so you won't find any political correctness in it. I highly recommend getting this, watching this, owning this, whatever, just see it!

      Beautifully written and convincing this movie will haunt you long after you've watched it. One of the greatest drama movies ever that thrust Jack Nicholson and his surrounding cast into stardom. A national treasure. Must own.

      This film displays some of Jack Nicholson's best work, as well as a superb supporting cast. 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' is one picture I highly recommend seeing. Widescreen, but fans may want to go the extra mile and buy the special edition, that has a ton of bonus material not offered on this dvd.

      I'm sure this is a good movie, But I'll likely have to watch it a second time to appreciate its greatness. It has a ton of great reviews but it didn't keep my attention. I DO believe it deserves another chance from me. It was only a few dollars. Check it out. Jack Nicholson rarely disappoints.

      Jack Nicholson is one awesome actor. In this movie he makes you laugh, he makes you sad, he commands any scene he is in. If you are a Nicholson fan this is a must have. The writing, the story, and the supporting cast is also top notch. It's a shame what happens to him but I suppose it could happen.

      Cuckoo's Nest is, in my opinion, the best film of the 70's. It is a must watch for everybody. Nicholson is as good as it gets (pun intended) in this film. It's top shelf all the way. This blu-ray transfer looks really, really nice too!

      This movie is a classic by the late Milos Forman. I love the way Will Sampson acted in this film; the ending, no. There’s a lot of well known actors in the film and they were YOUNG!!!
