| Rebecca DeMornay is underrated and underused!
Rebecca DeMornay is a talented and beautiful actress. She is highly under utilized in the film world. In this film, she plays a gun loving and carrying mother of an adult daughter. When Jenna bails on her life at home, mother goes to find her in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Jenna is happy and living there with roommates and a boyfriend. When her mother finds, she is determined to make her come home to America and get a gun. Without a gun, she feels naked. Canada has different rules for foreigners buying guns. She will try to buy a gun legally and illegally. The cast is fine but not familiar to me. I would have loved more location shots though since the city is beautiful. The script could have been better. The ending is abrupt.
