One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest vs. Chinatown



No comments on this one yet? Two fantastic Jack Nicholson Oscar nominated performances. Chinatown is great but One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is on another level.


Chinatown is fantastic but his performance in Cuckoo's Nest is better.

No. Freaking. Way. Chinatown FTW.

This is a very hard matchup. Nicholson's performance is superior in Cuckoo's Nest, but Chinatown's story is so encapsulating. I think I might go with Cuckoo's Nest by a little bit.

Chinatown all day long.

Cuckoo's Nest it is. Chinatown has never impressed me...

I'd say Jack Nicholson was equally good in these two movies, but One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is the better film here.

Cuckoo's Nest is more enjoyable.

Chinatown! Cuckoo's Nest is a bit overrated and not top 20 in my opinion. Chinatown has the better story but not the main performance (Jack Nicholson is still great in Chinatown though).

Cuckoo's Nest is far better.

Both are legends in their own right. Chinatown's story is much richer though, and I prefer it over Cuckoo.

The 70's is loaded with great movies! I prefer Chinatown in this matchup.

Both amazing Nicholson performances but Cuckoo's Nest is number two on my all time list, it just a better movie than Chinatown, Chinatown actually got a little boring at parts but a was still an amazing movie. Cuckoo's Nest will stand the test of time, and is my second favorite movie, it's just a way better movie.

Two fabulous Nicholson films here. I prefer Chinatown over Cuckoo.

When One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is pretty bad, highly overrated, Chinatown is great and powerful

Very close but I'm going with Chinatown

Cuckoo's Nest is wayyyy better


Jack's performance in 'cuckoo's nest' was one of the best in cinema history...i found 'chinatown' a little boring

Cuckoo's Nest gets the slight nod over CT, though it is close

Chinatown might be a better film technically speaking but my love for Cuckoo's Nest surpasses it. OFOTCN is the ultimate feel good movie.

One flew over the cuckoos nest is powerful but isn’t an enjoyable watch for me. Chinatown for me
