User ReviewsA perfect mixture of entertainment and drama.6 August 2005 | by Boba_Fett1138 (Groningen, The Netherlands) See all my reviewsCzech director Milos Forman seems to be obsessed with rebellious characters that don't like to go with the flow. Just think about Larry FlyntFemale Villains in theAmerican FilmInstitute's Top 50 ...See more polls Getting Started | Contributor Zone Edit page Write reviewin "The People vs. Larry Flynt" or Andy Kaufman in "Man on the Moon", in the two most recent movies of Forman. The central character in"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" played by Jack Nicholson is also one of those characters, that wants to break the routine and evenstarts a revolt against the staff and nurse Ratchett in particular, in a mental institution.The movie is perhaps more comedy and entertainment than heavy drama. Still that doesn't mean that the movie isn't filled with somepowerful emotional sequences. The tension between the patients and the staff gets more and more notable and grows throughout themovie, which eventually leads to a 'wonderful' ending which I'm not going to spoil.Yes, Jack Nicholson is truly splendid in his role and it seemed like he was improvising all his lines and actions during the entire movie. It was areally Oscar worthy performances, which he also received. Another Oscar winner for her performance was Louise Fletcher, which in myopinion is a bit too much credit. She plays her role well but nothing more than that. She did not deeply impressed me or anything. This moviealso marks the debut for some today well known actors such as Danny DeVito (he looked so young and different!), Christopher Lloyd andBrad Dourif, who also received an Oscar nomination.Really one of those movies that you must have seen at least once in your life.9/10 of 124 people found this review helpful.
