One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Another great film I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't seen until now. I very much liked it. Of course, it's a downer. But also quite an achievement. (Won academy award for best picture. best director, best screenplay, best actor, best actress. Of course it's good).

What I didn't expect was how entertaining and funny it was. It was 2 hours and 13 minutes long, but that time flew by. If I told you it might be fun to sit down and watch a film about a person committed to a mental institute and how it involved electric shock treatment and daily therapy and a cruel domineering nurse and a lobotomy, I think you'd say hey that's a film you're not really interested in watching. But actually, enough comedy is injected into this story that not only would you enjoy it, but you'd never get bored.

4 out of 4. You should love this movie.

I'm with you there, I really didn't expect it to be very funny. I've only seen it once, definitely need to watch it again.

P.S. If you ever have the chance to watch Strange Wilderness, don't take that chance.

Jack is fantastic in this film.

I really like him in As Good as it Gets too. Two completely different films.
