Editorial Reviews

Diane Lane (Academy Award(r) nominee, 2002 Unfaithful), James LeGros (Lovely & Amazing), Tess Harper (Academy Award(r) nominee, 1986 Crimes of the Heart) and Stephen Collins star in MY NEW GUN, a romantic comedy loaded with sly humor and originality. Debbie Bender (Lane) is a New Jersey housewife whose life is turned upside down when her pompous husband (Collins) gives her a gun for self-protection. But his self-protection plans backfire when their cute but wacky neighbor Skippy (LeGros) "borrow"it. Soon, bullets are flying, strangers and stalkers enter the picture, and a sure-fire, on-targetromantic comedy takes flight.

I have watched the video of "My New Gun" three times, and each time I have discovered more interesting, telling details. The plot doesn't drive the film; instead, it seems to evolve almost by happenstance from the characters themselves. Although there is no "crack-me-up" humor at all, if you think about what is going on as it happens, this movie is hilarious. Diane Lane, James LeGros, and Stephen Collins all shine.

I saw this movie without really knowing what it was about and was completely suprised by how good it is. Diane Lane, who is not only beautiful, but talented, plays a yuppie housewife who is given a gun by her husband. After she gets her neighbor involved, James Legros, they embark on series of strange, and mysterious events. This movie won best picture at the Sundance film festival in 1992, and is worth renting, but don't buy unless it's under $20. Diane Lane is truly underated in Hollywood and "My New Gun" proves why.

I agree with the previous reviewer. Diane Lane is better than most of the actresses out there. She was a gifted child actress and has continued to shine over the years. Please Hollywood, stop casting the same familiar actresses (Roberts, Diaz, Barrymore). There's nothing wrong with them at all, but Diane deserves to be there too!

A debut feature by a very talented young woman, MY NEW GUN, is a real winner. I have watched it times without number, and it always brings a smile to my innards. It's saying a lot, but I doubt that the fabulous Diane Lane has ever been better than she is here. I have a gut feeling she might concur - she acts as perfectly as ever, but somehow I get the impression that she was enjoying every moment!

Kind of a quirky movie that I only bought to see STEPHEN COLLINS. He plays the only normal person in the movie. Diane Lane becomes infatuated with a silly neighbor who has to carry a gun getting into all sorts of difficulties. Silly movie just for fun.

This piece mocks suburban paranoia in the firm of 2 pompous ass MDs who insist that their wives arm themselves---to protect themselves & property. Luckily they shoot themselves in the foot.
