Betty Lou is a librarian in a very small town. Her husband, Alex, is a police detective who takes her for granted. She is the ultimate mouse. After a gangland figure is mysteriously murdered in town, she finds the murder weapon, but can't get anyone's attention to tell them (we're talking very mousy, here). Finally in a fit of frustration she fires it in a restroom and when taken to the police station insists she is the murderer. It has the desired effect, people do pay attention to her. With hints at social graces from the hookers in her cell block, she's on her way. Written by

Betty Lou Perkins:
Why is it so hard to believe, that I might be exciting to other men? People have affairs. People have lovers. Why not me, Alex?
Cause I never did. I never had anyone but you.
Betty Lou Perkins:
You had everyone but me. You had Frank, and the boys, and the force and the bars and the games.

I beg to differ with the previous reviewer. On the contrary, this film does have a plot and is funny, with a rewarding ending. It is a light comedy, true. What I liked about it is that it is not just another cookie-cutter formula Hollywood movie. The plot is unique and believable, the writing is intelligent, the acting is adequate, the conclusion is appropriate to the plot. The two main characters, Betty Lou and Alex, grow and mature from their initial portrayal.
It is not a major film, but it is rewarding in its own way, an enjoyable way to spend 89 minutes. Lots of fun.
