Whether in Betty Lou's original demure guise or her subsequent glamorous transformation, Miller is convincing even when the movie isn't.
July 11, 2014
The movie resorts to a mundane shoot-'em-up finale that leaves the viewer feeling cheated and betrays the movie's PG-13 rating.
July 11, 2014
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'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.

There is definitely a gun in Betty Lou's handbag, but is there a brain in Betty Lou's head?
August 20, 2012
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 clever premise that ends up being as bland as its put-upon title character.

So darn innocuous it almost disappears.

It's a bit like finding a severed head in an Easter basket.

Stupid title, stupid movie, but not without its saving graces.
