Venita Louise has created a hysterical funny comedy in Mixed Nuts. I don’t know how she does it.
Each character is so entriging, so unique, like Frank Beal’s little daughter who wears a hard hat or his savvy son. His son so reminded me of my own son at that age. And that’s the other thing.
With as quirky and unusual as the characters are, solving their neighbor problem using voodoo, hitting snails over the fence for revenge, wearing a kilt and no teeth, somehow, I could find myself in that plot very easily.
Maybe this means that we all have weird kids and quirky relatives and neighbors we are jealous of? I don’t know, I just know that I haven’t had this satisfying a laugh in a LONG time.
