  • 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...
McMurphy
Which one of you nuts has got any guts?
McMurphy
That's right, Mr. Martini. There is an Easter Bunny.
McMurphy
Get out of my way son, you're usin' my oxygen.
McMurphy
Goddamn it Chief, you about as big as a damn mountain!
Chief Bromden
[last lines]Mac... they said you escaped. I knew you wouldn't leave without me. I was waiting for you. Now we can make it, Mac; I feel 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.
