Rita Wilson updated her Instagram feed with a sweet tribute to the 1994 American Christmas comedy film, ‘Mixed Nuts.’
Wilson, who beat Covid-19 with husband Tom Hanks a few months ago, uploaded a photo from the film that she described as one of the classic Christmas features, and call out fans to remember it. In the caption section, the actor paid credit to the entire cast and crew while informed her fans and followers about the names contributed to the film, which is the well-known Liev Schreiber‘s first.
The 64-year-old star first paid tribute to the late actor Madeline Kahn, who portrayed ‘Mrs. Blanche Munchnik’ in the film, by saying that she was one of the kindest women. Then Wilson referred to Steve Martin (‘Philip’), Juliette Lewis (‘Gracie’), Adam Sandler (‘Louie Capshaw’), Anthony LaPaglia (‘Felix’) and said that they made the set super fun with their endless energy. She has more to say about Sandler:
“Adam kept us in stitches with the filthiest jokes you’d ever hear on a set during six weeks of night shoots in Venice, CA.”
In the final part of her caption, Wilson wrote that during the whole filming, she had felt so blessed to be part of ‘Mixed Nuts’ and to work with incredible actors, including Robert Klein, Rob Reiner, Liev Schreiber, Garry Shandling, Parker Posey and Jon Stewart. Before thanking the fans of the film, who understand its weird tone, she made a confession:
“I almost never watch my own movies once I have seen them. I don’t think I have seen this since it came out. I may have to watch it.”
‘Mixed Nuts,’ based on a French film called ‘Le Pere Noel est Un Ordure‘ released theatrically on December 21, 1994. Contrary to Wilson’s opinion, Nora Ephron‘s film became critically and commercially unsuccessful during its run.
