WEEKEND SPECIAL: THE CANINE FILM CRITIC REVIEWS "ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST"
For first time readers, Goat Rope covers fairly serious topics during the week, generally accompanied by gratuitous animal pictures.
During the weekend, however, the animals get to speak for themselves.
This weekend, we are pleased to welcome back official Goat Rope Farm film critic Sandor Sege (pronounced Shandor Shegg-AY) who will discuss the classic film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
(We must remind the reader that Mr. Sege suffered a head injury when he crashed into a wall whilst chasing a squeaky toy. As a result, he has been known on occasion to transpose the plots of the movies he discusses. However, we believe that his unique insights into the world of cinema more than compensate for this regrettable shortcoming."
THE CANINE FILM CRITIC EXPLAINS "ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST"
OK, like this movie is about the conflict between people and dogs and authority.
There's like this guy, see, who's in prison but thinks if he gets put in a mental hospital things will be easier. So he goes into one and thinks it will be one big party.
But the thing is, there's this nurse in there who likes to grind everybody down.
Doodus says Moomus is kind of like that nurse. Moomus tells Doodus to shut up or she'll shock him again.
Anyway, the guy and the big nurse and the whole platoon have to go and rescue this private cause all his brothers got killed in the war. It gets pretty bloody and some of the guys get killed but then there's this amazing plot twist.
They wind up at this resort and they're like a family. The guy turns into this girl called Baby who takes dancing lessons and falls for the nurse, who is like a guy now.
They win a contest building this baseball field and everybody comes. Even the dead guys.
That is some heavy social criticism.
If Doodus won't make me some popcorn, I'm going to try to get Moomus to shock him some more.
