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

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.

Gun Shy is worth at least a shot at a matinee.
January 1, 2000
Not only is the script incomprehensible, the film wasn't edited or directed -- it was crammed into a Cuisinart.
