Gun Shy (2000) 10/27/18

KL Studio Classics

I had never heard of this comedy-thriller, and the good news is that it’s a pleasant surprise, thoroughly enjoyable. The toughest kind of filmmaking must be making comedy seem effortless, and that’s what Eric Blakeney does in this quirky, near- Screwball take on the done-to-death drug deal undercover thriller. Liam Neeson is sensational, and producer Sandra Bullock is at her most charming. Great work from the underrated Oliver Platt, making an unlikely character into something special. Even the flatulence jokes are funny. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
