Critic Reviews for The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag
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.
Audience Reviews for The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag
A great cast in the service of a silly script.
A girl killed her husband and tries to get off. It had some stuff going for it, but fell short. Kind of boring at times.
I give this one three stars for movie quality, but it's much more endearing to me than that....mainly because of the library connection and the fact that it was filmed in my favorite place in all of Mississippi, Oxford.
