A guns-and-sex comedy that fires blanks on all fronts.
Good intentions and a decent cast can't save a film this painfully unfunny.
Most of the time ... the movie is too busy being saucy or sappy to even look at its target.
Everybody involved with the awful comedy "Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?..." owes Aristophanes an apology.
To call this feeble comedy a misfire would be to give it more credit than it's due.
Is That a Gun in Your Pocket? gets all its tropes, beats, and characters from ghastly sitcoms of the 1990s - long-running trash like Full House, Home Improvement, Family Matters, and The Nanny.
If I hadn't committed to writing a review of Is That A Gun In Your Pocket?, I likely wouldn't have had to convince myself to sit through the second half of it.
That sound you hear in the distance might be Aristophanes rolling in his grave.
This tepid war-of-the-sexes comedy doesn't have much bite, despite its timely topic.
Bogus gun stats. Limp jokes. Gender cliches that went out with the '70s. Is That a Gun in Your Pocket? has 'em all!
A timely but generally toothless "Lysistrata" take on the gun control debate.
