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.
Streisand's a star, which means your complicity is on call at all times. In the shade, Dreyfuss is terrific, banking down his natural cockiness.
The film is almost entirely adrift.
It's Hollywood manipulation at its best.
It wants to be a movie with a message, but in the end it's just a melodrama.
Nuts is essentially just a futile exercise in courtroom cliches, surrounding a good performance that doesn't fit.
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.
Misfire with Streisand doesn't know if it's funny or pitiful. But it IS depressing.
Underated movie with great performances by Streisand and Dreyfuss.
Nuts is a gutsy movie about a woman who refuses to submit to the purposes, fantasies or needs of others.
Leslie Nielsen in his panties is more engaging than the entire remainder of this horrid bore.
The actors mostly acquit themselves, but let's face it - the material itself should have been condemned.
It was slightly unbelievable for me since if I'd such a client to defend who is not willing to co-operate the least, I don't think I'd touch that case. Or else give up easily. Then again, I ain't no lawyer!!! They show her crossing the limits so many times that it becomes hard to digest it that she ain't a nut. Leaving aside this minor problem, the movie works fine as a courtroom drama.
Really powerful and intelligent film based on Tom Topor's Broadway play as this is a highly charged drama that raises some uneasy questions.
This is a film that deserves more attention then it originally received, it is honest, though-provoking, and features a brilliant performance from Barbra Streisand as real-life defender Claudia Draper.
Richard Dreyfuss also turns in his usual skilled performance as a lawyer who becomes more passionate about the case the longer he is involved with it. His eventual concern for Claudia is touching.
And Karl Malden, Maureen Stapleton, James Whitmore, and Leslie Nielsen all play excellent supporting roles.
