Quotes

Fulvio Nesstra: I'm very good at reading what's in a person's eyes.
Charlie: That's nice.
Fulvio Nesstra: I'm reading yours right now.
Charlie: Yeah? What do they say?
Fulvio Nesstra: They say you're sleepy. But I can't figure out is it's too much drugs sleepy, too much work sleepy or I'm so fucking bored sleepy. Maybe you've got that weird fucking sleepy disease. Narco-sleepy. Something sleepy.

Within the great adversities of life, this flick wittingly demonstrates that good film making will get you to laugh under the most dire of circumstances!
5 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gun Shy is apt title! This underrated comedy, will put a smile on your face,despite any insanities we'd project as insurmountable odds that you & I may sometime end up facing! I found it well written, with appropriate zingers that I find myself quoting, as certain situations arise! It contains great casting,an interesting plot,& the interaction of all the charismatic characters kept me glued as to what they'd say & do from one moment to the next! The spontaneous actions,style & quips of this zany grand insanity of unusual lifestyles & eclectic characters being thrust into an quite unusual situation,under the intense pressure of a bunch of grandiose yet charismatic lunatics,kept me constantly yearning for more of that unique chemistry,prolific dialog & unforeseen situations that earmarked this film as an all time favorite of mine! PS: A Sugestion, place your brain on the shelf & don't knitpick,just enjoy a "feel good, about feeling bad", kind of movie! ...And for Heavens sake, smile, as you may have the misfortune of being one of those dysfunctional, yet incredibly lovable, misfits!
