In this Christmas episode of The Rewatch Podcast, Cory and Nathan are looking for something sweet but find something salty as they discuss “Mixed Nuts.”

Mixed Nuts Trailer:

Our Favourite Trivia:

Liev Schreiber’s theatrical film debut. His first credited role was in Janek: The Silent Betrayal (1994), which premiered on television the day before this movie opened in theaters.

When Dr. Kinsky (Rob Reiner) is complaining about Vanessa (Michele Singer) to Philip (Steve Martin), he mentions that she has twelve pillows, in all sorts of shapes, and at night, before they go to bed, they have to take all twelve pillows, and then in the morning they have to replace all the pillows, for no real purpose. This is the same routine that Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston go through in Along Came Polly (2004).

Mrs. Munchnik (Madeline Kahn) reads an issue of “Distress Magazine”. In Santa Claus Is a Stinker (1982), the suicide prevention hotline was called “SOS Distress”.

What’s Up Next?:

A tradition is born as Cory and Nathan rewatch a new year’s horror, this time it’ll be a “Bloody New Year”.
