"Weird exercise in toilet humor."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Gun Shy is worth at least a shot at a matinee."
‑ Kevin Maynard, Mr. Showbiz
"Sure it falls apart right at the end--but up until that point it's a gem of an underrated comedy."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"I'd rather be shot then have to see this again ."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"Gun Shy is also likely to be a bad career move for producer/co-star Sandra Bullock."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Not only is the script incomprehensible, the film wasn't edited or directed -- it was crammed into a Cuisinart."
‑ Paul Clinton (,
"The movie is marred by an overreliance on unfunny bathroom gags."
‑ Eric Harrison, Los Angeles Times
"[Gun Shy is] not boring as much as it's...forgettable."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews

‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"It's a shame everything is so discombobulated, because some sparkling moments get lost in the mess."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A half hour in and still, the plot, tone, and setting are incomprehensible."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Gun Shy can't rise on wobbly legs."
‑ Tom Keogh,
"A quirky comedy about middle-aged burnout."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Movies this badly botched are seldom released in theaters."
‑ Dave Kehr, Citysearch
"Not exactly what I'd call hilarious."
‑ Michael Dequina,
