Nuts Reviews

August 29, 2019
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.

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

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.

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.

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