"...[The director] knows how to make offbeat characters engaging..."
Betty Lou Perkins, a shy librarian, confesses to a murder she didn't commit just to get attention. Her confession has uproarious consequences as a new, sexy Betty Lu finds herself capturing headlines, dancing in nightclubs, outwitting the mob, and being cheered by the town.
Betty Lou, a mousy, small-town librarian who is being ignored by her detective-husband, stumbles upon a handgun and finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. Not taken seriously by her family and friends, she confesses to the crime and uses it as an opportunity to transform her life.
