It has 5 Academy Awards and boat loads of critical acclaim. It is on more must watch lists than we can count. So of course attempt to do the impossible by remaking Milos Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (1975). We might as well try to climb Mount Everest with our teeth. Who are we to think we can have a better cast than Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, Brad Dourif, Sidney Lassick, and William Redfield? Maybe we should be committed for even trying.
More importantly than trying to remake the film is discussing it. It should be talked about. It is still relevant today and we have a frank discussion about the film, and mental illness. Don't worry, we have some fun as well. It's what we do.
If you have your own suggestions of film classics that we should never ever touch please let us know on:
