Great TV Movie, Sally Struthers has never been better!
30 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good argument against gun control. It's hard watching an actress we grew up with (Sally Struthers) being humiliated by home invaders. Sally should have won an emmy for her performance in this flick. She goes through all the emotions as she is arrested for shooting one of the scumbags who breaks into her house. This movie proves that most District Attorney's have their head up their @#$ !!!

The ending does provide some satisfaction, I won't elaborate on details, just sit back and watch and enjoy old time entertainment that doesn't rely on computer-generated action, just plain ole' good acting.
