Your views, which might very well be widely different from those of professional movie critics, need to be supported by evidence from the movie, not the book. Some of those reviews you see online mix the details from the book and the movie which share the title One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest. DO NOT copy ANY PART OF THE QUESTION (points off).
