I think he's talking about the style of film making

Since the book is more impressionistic (it gets downright surrealistic at times, like when McMurphy and The Chief are taken to get electroshock or some of The Chief's narrative tangents) some folks seem to object to the relative realism of the film and complain that watching a bunch of inmates wasting away in an asylum is inherently boring without stylistic filmmaking flourishes. I understand the complaint but don't agree with it. Another common complaint is the sequence where McMurphy takes the inmates out to go fishing, which wasn't in the book. Again, I understand the complaint and will admit that it's probably the film's main flaw but still think the sequence is basically redeemed by what follows.
