Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
It's a good bad... and worth a popcorn matinée. While it's easy to lament what could have been...
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
Honestly it's just one of the best movies I've ever seen. JUST WATCH IT
The 1975 movie, ¨One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest¨ directed by Milos Forman is a moderate movie because of the characters, how it follows the book, and the emotional connection is lacking between the book and the movie. The characters are played well by the actors, but some of the characters changed in the movie. An example of this is that Chief is not a main character. The movie moderately follows the book written by Ken Kesey, but if you have read the book and loved it, then you may be a tad bit disappointed with the movie. You may be asking why? Well, one of the main characters, McMurphy, doesn't have red hair in the movie which is the one of the main reasons why people first notice him. The book makes the characters more memorable than in the movie.
"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (OFOCN) is a movie that was released in 1975; it is based off a book bearing the same name by Ken Kesey and directed by Milos Forman. I would just like to quickly note that I read the book; had I not read the book, I may have thought that "OFOCN" was a good movie, despite the recurrent plot choppiness, but since I read the book, I believe that it is only an okay movie. The movie does not follow the book very well. The main idea of the plot was still there, but there are things that were important in the book, but left out in the movie. The character interpretation left something to be desired. Sure there were good actors- Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Danny DeVito, and Christopher Lloyd- which made the movie better, but the personalities of their characters, especially those of Nicholson and Fletcher, were completely different and altered the plot a little. Another thing that was not close to being accurate was that the entire book was narrated from the main character, Chief Bromden's, point of view, complete with his hallucinations. In the movie, McMurphy is the main character, and Chief isn't even seen for most of the movie. I feel that the director could have done a better job with that; they could have used a voice over, so that chief could still narrate things from his point of view. Also, many of the important events that happened in the book, did not happen in the movie or they switched the characters that were in the events. The book was written to show how people with mental illness live and how they were treated at the time, which was shown in a deep way through the character personalities, the way they interacted, Chief's narration, and the events that happen in the book. Since the movie changed a lot of these things, I believe that the story lost its depth and its underlying meaning; it just became a movie about a sane guy disrupts a bunch of "crazy people". Lastly, the movie jumps around a lot; they leave out some details that leaves you wondering, "What caused this to be happening now?" Overall, I recommend that you either read the book or watch the movie, not both, though I would recommend the book over the movie any day. The movie itself has good actors and a fairly strong plot line, but does not follow the book it is based off of very well. All in all, I would give OFOCN a 5 out of 10.
The movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," director Milos Forman, I would give it a 75% because of the characters, plot, and introduction. The introduction started out in how McMurphy had came into the asylum without being pushed to shower and he never got the shot on his butt. The introduction didn't introduce the black boys giving Chief the mop so he can clean up because he already had it in hand. The characters don't really show the condition they have as in personality wise and why they are there. They do mention in the group the problems of the characters but some characters you can't really figure out what condition they have. The plot of the movie didn't go as planned when they went fishing he never asked if they could go fishing. The doctor and chief were never involved in the fishing trip but chief did help McMurphy up when he wanted to go over the fence. Overall the movie and the book did correlate with each other at the end of the book everything with chief escaping went as planned.
