  • Richard Dreyfuss is amazing as Levinsky, who gets drawn into Draper's world and becomes fascinated by it
  • I have to say that as I think back at this movie, it makes my smile, not because it's light and fluffy, because it's not

      Nuts has too much profanity in it for my taste, but otherwise, Nuts is a wonderful movie. Never assume because your assumptions may be all wrong. People wanted to judge Claudia Draper, a woman accused of murder. She was a high priced call girl, and that’s as far as anyone wanted to go, until Aaron Levinsky became her lawyer. He should have left the courtroom the moment he had the chance,

      but he lingered and found him having to make a quick defense for the very difficult Draper. As much as Levinsky battles the district attorney, he battles his client, and that’s the joy of this film - the relationship between lawyer and client. It’s awesome.

      Nuts has a marvelous cast. Barbra Streisand is Draper, a very independent and confident woman who isn’t the least bit ashamed of her profession. Richard Dreyfuss is amazing ...


      • as Levinsky, who gets drawn into Draper’s world and becomes fascinated by it. They make an odd pair, and while there isn’t a romance, there’s a lot of teasing, and it works.

        Karl Malden and Maureen Stapleton play Draper’s upright parents, the epitome of righteous parenting, except all is not what it seems. Their acting is terrific, and the scenes with these two in court are chilling. Stapleton especially gives a magnificent performance.

        Then there’s Leslie Nielsen, Eli Wallach, Robert Webber, William Prince, and James Whitmore, all superb actors who all gave superb performances.

        Nuts is fantastic. The last scene is incredibly wonderful and free-feeling. I have to say that as I think back at this movie, it makes my smile, not because it’s light and fluffy, because it’s not; rather, it’s just such a good film with Dreyfuss extremely surprising as Streisand’s equal. See it!
