An early role for Kevin Sacey as he and his wife are held hostage in their middle class suburban home by cynical crook Dennis Leary and inevitable life lessons ensue. Some of the sniping and bickering is pretty funny, as is the increasingly exasperated Leary. Makes a nice change from the usual saccharine-soaked christmas mush.

A very funny, slightly dark comedy that plays off of dysfunctional family situations quite well. All three of the main players are equally good.

Crook takes hostages and gets taken hostage (so to speak). Screwed-up family has a crook as the at-first-reluctant referee in their battles and scrimmages, which continue during their time as hostages. Cops are closing in on the crook. Will his interventions bring the family together? Will he escape and leave the hostages unharmed? Will the Stockholm Syndrome rule? Denis Leary raw.
