Gun Shy is a zany mobster/comedy film about a lawman who is suffering from anxiety attacks and is in need of seeing a shrink.

A half hour in and still, the plot, tone, and setting are incomprehensible.

Not only is the script incomprehensible, the film wasn't edited or directed -- it was crammed into a Cuisinart.

[Gun Shy is] not boring as much as it's...forgettable.

Compuserve

Neither romantic nor dark, neither humorous nor satiric, Gun Shy tries to be Bob Newhart, Goodfellas, Mickey Blue Eyes and Forces of Nature and succeeds at none of the above.

It is not funny enough to be the spoof it wants to be, not exciting or suspenseful enough to support the action scenes.
