A nice rest in a state mental hospital beats a stretch in a pen, right? Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a free-spirited con with lightening in his veins and glib on his tongue, fakes insanity and moves in with what he calls the `nuts`.
Immediately, his contagious sense of disorder runs up against numbing routine. No way should guys pickled on sedatives shuffle around in bathrobes when the World Series is on. This means war! On one side is McMurphy. On the other is soft-spoken Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), among the most coldly monstrous villains in history. At stake is the fate of every patient in the ward.
Based on Ken Kesey`s acclaimed bestseller, `One Flew Over The Cuckoo`s Nest` swept all five major 1975 Academy Awards(r): Best Picture (produced by Saul Zaentz and Michael Douglas), Actor (Nicholson), Actress (Fletcher), Director (Milos Forman), and Adapted Screenplay (Lawrence Hauben and Bo Goldman). Raucous, searing and with a superb cast that includes Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd in his film debut, this one soars.
