Afterthoughts on 'Mixed Nuts'
20 January 2005 | by (montana) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a few times when it first came out on video. I enjoyed that it was not all 'cheery and light' as much of the films (not all - thank goodness) with the name 'Ephron' attached to them.

People have commented on what a horrible movie this was. OK, fine this was not the standard cookie cutter romantic comedy and was rather flip about sensitive topics. It was even beyond borderline over the top. Thus, why I enjoyed it.

So why comment now? I was reminded of this movie as a watched the remake of the Manchurian Candidate. I knew as the drag queen titter, clad in his lovely black shawl, that he had that something to make it. Liev Schreiber has done just that with grace and an interesting body of work. It is always exciting to see that happen. I had that same feeling when I saw a performance in the Australian film called "Romper Stomper." Although Russell Crowe's fists have got almost as many headlines as his brilliant performances have.
