Its dialogue, cliched and lacking subtlety, constantly threatens to reduce the whole production to cheap melodrama.

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.

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.

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.

Nuts never equals the sum of its parts. There's never a doubt the moxie lady-of-the-night at the center of the film is anything but sane, and it takes a good deal of the edge off the movie.

A surprisingly compelling courtroom drama, which only lapses into Hollywood gloss at the end when Streisand delivers a mannered, close-up monologue.
May 20, 2003
The film is almost entirely adrift.

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