The Ref (1994) live action, movie – USA

ref
comedy, crime, drama
director: Ted Demme
writers: Marie Weiss, Richard LaGravenese
starring: Denis Leary, Judy Davis, Kevin Spacey

A cat burglar takes a dysfunctional couple hostage to hide out from the cops after something goes wrong. He then is forced to play the part of referee and marriage counselor.

I wish they would have showed more about what happened after all of this happened. I wanted to know more about what was going to happen with the old lady. But overall, it was funny (although it could have been a bit funnier), but there were some funny-ish quotes. There were also a couple other pretty good quotes (of course coming from the thief). Plus, who doesn’t love a dysfunctional family, as long as it isn’t your own?

Anyway, it’s a good movie so I’d say it’s worth watching. It’s also good for December as it’s set during xmas eve.
