Just another private eye movie-but for the theme music....
30 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those films you watch it to listen to the music.Henry Mancini's thumping theme music and jazz score, and a couple of standard nightclub songs give the film a flavour its somewhat dowdy accompaniment desperately needs. That is a contradiction in terms, I know,watching a film to listen to the music, but really, in this movie, nothing much happens that is not expected plot-wise and plot-development-wise, except for one wonderful moment when our hero - the eponymous Mr.Gunn -finds himself in his apartment with three dames, two bodies and two cops and everybody talking at once.
