Set at a suicide hotline during Christmas, Nora Ephron’s dim farce is enough to leave you depressed. In Mixed Nuts, Steve Martin and Madeline Kahn play counselors so inept that callers hang up, defeated. Meanwhile, at the door is a mixture of ”nuts,” including a lonely transvestite and a serial killer. Rob Reiner and Robert Klein, among others, suffer through shrill repartee and clunky slapstick, which is probably why this yuletide release (inexplicably out on video for the summer) was gone before the Christmas trees came down.
