Sure it falls apart right at the end--but up until that point it's a gem of an underrated comedy.

The supporting cast is comical, and anyone enjoying the misadventures of dumb lawbreakers should get a kick out of this movie.

By the middle of the film, however, this cross between the original Bob Newhart Show and the James Bond films has hit it's stride and we can sit back and enjoy a really comfortable movie.

Gun Shy is the kind of movie that makes you laugh; then, as you think about it afterward, you feel ashamed you enjoyed it.
