The story is about a man who may not really be insane is admitted to an institution. He plays tricks on the nurse and rounds up the other trouble patients for a healthy dose of fun. Jack Nicholson in this film was brilliant and the all film is crazy but so full of joy until the end comes and if you have seen the film you know what I mean.

Jack Nicholson was amazing! This movie is very good. It has light humor and a dramatic ending. I really liked it. I don't know what else to say except it was good. I'd recommend

In a fairly faithful adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel, Jack Nicholson leads the charge for a discovery of self within a stringent mental institution The film is wonderfully life affirming, while also still clinging to the tragic air of the novel. Nicholson's persona finds the right line between totally unhinged and courageous and the film's heart lies with his performance.

Jack Nicholson's finest performance in an intelligent, touching and ultimately tragic tale of a petty criminal trying to evade prison by feigning insanity. A classic.

An intelligent, funny and somewhat emotional drama. All of the actors are superb and each creates a memorable character. There are many great scenes here. I absolutely enjoyed it.

Best ensemble cast ever. Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd went on to TV and movie stardom. Scatman Crothers, William Redfield and other veterans got a showcase. Jack Nicholson had a field day as R.P. McMurphy. And whatever happened to Brad Dourif?

A cinematic as well as a literary classic, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is a driven film, asking the audience to believe in a world of sanity when all there is around you is insanity. A brilliant performance (one of almost every single one) by Jack Nicholson, as well as a wonderful supporting cast brings about some of cinema's most memorable moments. What strikes me so plaintively about this film is the fact that even the villain has redemptive qualities and much of the film is spent in dealing with the fact that both protagonist and antagonist positions are held by both leading characters. A wonderful gem of a flick.

Terrific film about the effects of institutionalization. All of the characters are well written and 3 dimensional. The dynamic between the patients is well done and every scene is interesting in some way. It is a very human story because it wants to treat all the patients as humans. The power struggle between the patients completely lead by McMurphy well played by Jack Nicholson and the head nurse. Every scene in this movie really does work and it gets to an effective conclusion.
