Nuts is essentially just a futile exercise in courtroom cliches, surrounding a good performance that doesn't fit.

Other Ritt films have been manipulative, but at least they have been so in good cause.

The actors mostly acquit themselves, but let's face it - the material itself should have been condemned.

Misfire with Streisand doesn't know if it's funny or pitiful. But it IS depressing.

It wants to be a movie with a message, but in the end it's just a melodrama.

Leslie Nielsen in his panties is more engaging than the entire remainder of this horrid bore.

All of the secondary roles are well cast, and Martin Ritt's direction is as good as it can be, considering the script's limitations.

Streisand produced, developed the script, and composed most of the music for this showpiece, and her efforts, as usual, pay off, above all in her angry and lively performance.

Nuts is a gutsy movie about a woman who refuses to submit to the purposes, fantasies or needs of others.

A surprisingly compelling courtroom drama, which only lapses into Hollywood gloss at the end when Streisand delivers a mannered, close-up monologue.
