edit About The Book
One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest is a factual novel by Ken Kesey. Its main character is a very tall Indian hired by the Indian Mafia, and although he was not the tallest mobster in the world, he was the tallest mobster in Sequim, Washington. The book was endorsed by the APA as part of their scared sane program.

Amazed by the fact that the book was about a tall Indian, some people decided to make a movie based on the book. Jack Nicholson plays the most important character, and his name in the movie is probably John or Michael or something along those lines. There is also an Indian there but his name is unknown as he doesn't talk so he can't introduce himself.
The plot of the movie is mainly like this: The Joker (played by Jack Nicholson) comes to a mental institution and the very tall Indian is already there. Jack tries to say "hi" to the Indian, but the Indian can't respond because he can't talk. After that Jack gets very angry at the Indian and does a lot of crazy things to punish the Indian. He steals a bus and drives off with all the people there and he even invites some girls to go along. The Indian is of course not invited. Then he jumps on the Indian and sits on him for a while and makes the Indian run around. After that the Indian tells Jack that he can in fact talk. Then the crazy thing happens. The Indian simply kills him as some sort of revenge! Following that the Indian runs away and there the story ends.
Oh yes there are themes in this novel. The first is birds, obviously, which is a reoccurring motif throughout the book, starting with the title, and is mentioned a total of one other time in the book, where the tall Indian decides the motif is fast becoming non-reoccurring. He then decides to add geese into the mix by mentioning how his (sane) dad taped his dead grandma to a tree and scared off some nosy white people by talking about geese that didn't exist. As if there weren't enough only-once-mentioned-in-the-entire-novel characters in that section, another character is introduced to simply laugh at the geese... that still don't exist.
Females is the second, because a lot of women have a lot to say against this book, because of the absence of insane women in the crazy house, except the nurse who has really big breasts that become a reoccurring motif throughout the book, when the character who is The Joker-but-not persistently questions her about her bra size and gets no reply. He eventually lets curiosity get the better of him and rips her shirt off, and although everyone is certain she would have appreciated the little lace number he picked out for her, being the tease she is, she gets him back for his public display of affection by cheekily lopping his brain off while he sleeps. It turns out Nicholson was only ever a figment of the Indians imagination that the staff pantomimed the medical torture of as part of his treatment. After smothering his imaginary friend with a pillow the tall Indian is now officially sane; with nothing left to tie him there, he busts down the wall of the institute by throwing a sink, like he was Kool-aid man on PCP, and walks away.
