steve voyce (3 out of 10 ) Huh! didn't recognise the script at all, was this the first draft? I was looking forward to reading a transcript of the film with Jack Nicholson - much disappointed. A truly original and magnificent screenplay dumbed down, or the final draft magnificently revised, whatever!
Nick (10 out of 10 ) I have been trying to find out who did the screenplay for Cuckoo. If you know or do find out, please let me know. Your site is very rich in content and is a treasure to the public. Thank you.
Aaron Legg (10 out of 10 ) The best movie of the 70s, I absolutely love it.
Madman (10 out of 10 ) One of the most underrated scripts on this site. One of the greatest films ever made.
fsmithks (10 out of 10 ) The screenplay is missing at least one scene that is critical to the movie. Here's the dialogue of the patient staffing:
I think he's dangerous. He's not crazy... but he's dangerous.
You don't think he's crazy? No, he's not crazy.
I don't think he's overly psychotic. But I still think he's quite sick. -
Do you think he's dangerous? -
Well, John, what do you want to do with him?
I think we've had our turn. I'd like to send him back to the work farm, frankly.
Is there anybody that you have... on your staff, that could... relate to him? Maybe understand him. Help him out with some of these problems?
The funny thing is that the person that he's the closest to... is the one he dislikes the most. That's you, Mildred.
Well, gentlemen, in my opinion, if we send him back to Pendleton or... we send him up to Disturbed... it's just one more way of passing on our problem to somebody else. You know, we don't like to do that. So I'd like to keep him on the ward. I think we can help him.
John (5 out of 10 ) I'd love to see the REAL script. This one bears little resemblance to the final version, which I have seen at least 40 times.
