- This film got a clean sweep of the 5 most prestigous awards at the Oscars. Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Picture. It's a must see, need we say more?!
A nice rest in a state mental hospital beats a stretch in the pen, right? Randle P. McMurphy (Nicholson), a free-spirited con with lightning 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 shuffled 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 film history. At stake is the fate of every patient on the ward...
Which one of you nuts has got any guts?
That's right, Mr. Martini. There is an Easter Bunny.
Get out of my way son, you're usin' my oxygen.
Goddamn it Chief, you about as big as a damn mountain!
[he suddenly sees the lobotomy scars]Oh, no...
[embracing McMurphy]I'm not goin' without you, Mac. I wouldn't leave you this way... You're coming with me.
[laying him down]Let's go.
