Mixed Nuts Reviews

Director/co-scripter Nora Ephron pitches the humor at a cacophonous level and displays the comedic equivalent of two left feet in evolving an absurdist, slapstick yarn.

Ephron's timing and sensitivity have deserted her, leaving behind only the sentimentality.

A title song incorporating the names of nut varieties is only one of the film's desperate ploys.

Is there anything more excruciating than failed farce?

Every character shines with such dazzling intensity and such inexhaustible comic invention that the movie becomes tiresome, like too many clowns.
