  • Mixed Nuts, opening today at Bay Area movie theaters, is laced generously with chuckles, though it neglects one little detail that helps make movies satisfying: a plot. [21 Dec 1994, p.E1] show more

  • The oddballs of Mixed Nuts are oddly lackluster -- starting with Mr. Martin, who ambles through the movie with a stunned look on his face. [22 Dec 1994, p.A12] show more

  • It's hard to create snap-crackling languor or laid-back frenzy. And there's also something condescending in the entire conception of Mixed Nuts. [21 Dec 1994, p.7] show more

    I love this movie, and my family looks forward to seeing it every year as one of our "Christmas" movies. It's wacky but everyone is so good in it! It has an all star line up, just look. Adam Sandler shines in this and who wouldn't love the dance? Very funny. Check it out.
