The movie that inspired a generation of young women to fake a mental illness in order to get attention. Who the fuck cares.

Is it too much to ask for a Winona on Angelina lesbian scene? I mean honestly, a movie about chicks in an asylum/prison without one in this day and age?

Winona goes after an Oscar but it went to Jolie instead. She should give it back. This is a by the numbers Cuckoo's Nest that is mostly style and no substance. Very overrated in my opinion.

Not a favorite of mine but it's nice to see a movie that both passes the Bechdel Test and holds my interest. The predominantly female cast is given every opportunity to shine with characters that are not one-dimensional and most of the actresses do a good job. My one complaint is that the entire story seemed to take place while they all simultaneously had their periods.

Some good moments, but at its heart a sensationalized portrayal of women at a mental institution. And yeah, even with her bad hair, this movie couldn't fool me: Angelina's still hot. Hollywood just could not resist the urge to display "cRaZy chicks!" in all their sexy-hot dramatic glory.

While I can't exactly say that Girl, Interrupted was a great movie, it was a very good one that made me care deeply for its main character, while showing the inner workings of a mental institution. It shows us in great detail the psyche of Susanna, while leaving enough room for its secondary characters as well. It sometimes slips into melodrama territory, but I didn't mind that much because of how involved I felt with the story.

A movie that starts out with a passably clear focus, yet turns into a maddening spiral of downwards instability and insanity, which manages to perfectly capture the essence of Jolie's well-acted, tortured soul - eventually, the cycle becomes predictable, exhausting, and over-long.

Well intentioned CUCKOO'S NEST derivation has a terrific support cast (highlighted by Goldberg and Jolie) offsetting an uncommonly dull and listless performance by Ryder - possibly deliberate, but it makes her character an unsatisfying focus for the plot. Like its forebearer, the notion that "the system" is the problem, rather than very real mental disorders, makes the drama feel largely manipulative and unconvincing, muffling some of the reasonable points about mental health care, then and now.

Critics praise Angelina Jolie's intense performance, but overall they say the movie suffers from flatness of storyline, inability to bring the true spirit of the book to screen, and a diminuative performance by Ryder.

A pale shadow of Cuckoo's Nest, also this might sound misogynistic but whatever: I found everyone annoying especially Jolie. Ryder works well as a supporting actor but when she's the lead it doesn't land well, apart from Heathers.

The acting was pretty damned good and I really loved Ryder and Jolie in this. The story itself is interesting and touching, but a bit uneven. Some elements seemed to be thrown in there just for the added drama. Which brings me to the major gripe that keeps this from being a really good movie: it feels too emotionally manipulative at times. One more thing: One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest may be a brilliant film, but it doesn't hold exclusive rights to stories placed in mental institutions.

This is so much like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest that it's damned distracting. The major difference is where Cuckoo's Nest was anti-authoritarian, Girl, interrupted sides with the authoritarians. This left me more confused than anything else. Now, that being said, it was still a good movie. But I don't think it's humanly possible to watch the movie and not think of Cuckoo's Nest. I also don't think it's humanly possible to not think about how much better Cuckoo's Nest is in comparison.

Angelina Jolie is very good in this film and Ryder, whom I normally find as nothing special, is actually captivating. Whoopi Goldberg as well plays her part very well. The movie on a whole, however, doesn't manage to make itself very memorable. It's good but just not great.

Definitely something that stays with you after watching. It does tend to play to certain stereotypes about mental illness, but especially considering that this was made in the late nineties I think it still holds up well. Very gripping plot and characters that felt real - truly a must-watch.

Winona is so handsome & Angela's crumbling self assurance so well done, that the music video montage segments are the only real slumps in what amounts to a decent mental story. If one is looking for clues or clarity in how to return to sanity, there is little insight. The secondary characters are oft times the life of the movie.
