Worth a look for Gail
A young woman (the luscious Gail O'Grady) returns home after receiving a cryptic letter from her estranged father. She's greeted by her hostile mother and oddball uncle, but her father is nowhere to be found. Despite the hostility directed towards her, she sticks around to unravel the mystery of where daddy disappeared to.

Mediocre DTV flick is very predictable. There is also more melodrama than anything. Still, there are a few effective scenes, as well as two or three bits of unintentional amusement. The "moment" between Gail and her potential boyfriend as they sit parked in a secluded spot is one such example. Really, Gail was the main draw. I love her!
