Whether in Betty Lou's original demure guise or her subsequent glamorous transformation, Miller is convincing even when the movie isn't.
There's nothing wrong with The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag that isn't wrong with about a thousand other commercially homogenized comedies of its kind.
It just sort of limps along under the late-summer sun until, at last, its forced whimsy expires.
A clever premise that ends up being as bland as its put-upon title character.
It's a bit like finding a severed head in an Easter basket.
The movie's a handbag full of formulaic fluff.
The movie resorts to a mundane shoot-'em-up finale that leaves the viewer feeling cheated and betrays the movie's PG-13 rating.
Penelope Ann Miller transcends her material in The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag, a half-baked Disney comedy that also half-benefits (the first half, to be exact) from the sly, subversive direction of Allen Moyle.
There is definitely a gun in Betty Lou's handbag, but is there a brain in Betty Lou's head?
A terrible picture, absent rhythm and purpose, straining hard to remain charismatic and mysterious while it engages in pure nonsense, crudely arranged by Moyle in a career-killing feature.
A little bit overrated, but fairly fun comedy.
So darn innocuous it almost disappears.
A great cast in the service of a silly script.
