A new film, Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?, depicts women withholding sex until men agree to get rid of their guns.
Is That a Gun was written, directed and produced by Matt Cooper, and it stars Andrea Anders (Modern Family), Matt Passmore (The Glades), Cloris Leachman (The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Horatio Sanz (Wreck-It Ralph), John Michael Higgins (Couples Retreat), and Jon Heard (NCIS Los Angeles), among others.
The film’s trailer announces: “Finally a comedy that takes aim at America’s greatest obsessions.” It includes scenes of women in the fictional town of Rockford, Texas, banding together to deny their men sex until their men get rid of their guns.
There are scenes of the town’s women meeting to launch the sexual boycott of the town’s men, assuring one another that the men will crack and give in soon enough, and of the women doubling down by looking and acting as sexy as possible to drive the men into submission.
The film turns on an accidental firearm discharge at a school, after which one mother encourages other mothers to give up on guns.
The plot is evident from the film’s synopsis:
If there’s one thing the men of Rockford, Texas love as much as their women, it’s their guns. But life in this idyllic town is turned upside-down when a gun incident at a neighborhood school spurs stay-at-home mom Jenna (Andrea Anders) to rethink Rockford’s obsessive gun culture. Much to the chagrin of her husband Glenn (Matt Passmore), Jenna ignites a movement by convincing the women to withhold sex from the men until every gun in town is vanquished. A wild and hilarious showdown ensues between the sexes. As tensions—and libidos—rise, the men and women of Rockford must decide what’s really important: keeping the peace or getting a piece.
Because the film is a comedy, it may not contain a serious gun control push. But it does, the gist of the film is undercut by the fact that women — rather than men — have emerged as one of the strongest demographics for firearm purchases in recent years. Moreover, a Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) study shows that twice as many women as men have obtained concealed carry permits during Obama’s second term.
