12 Movies by Nora Ephron

Mixed Nuts (1994)

Steve Martin, one of Ephron's favorite actors, stars in this madcap comedy about a crisis hotline business during the busy holiday season. Late comedy great Madeline Kahn also stars, along with Anthony LaPaglia. Ephron served as writer and director for Mixed Nuts, so when the critics universally panned it, she was doubly to blame, though the film still took in around $6 million.
