  • Gus is a pretty clever cat burglar, but he's having a really bad Christmas Eve. He just stole precious gems from a wealthy amusement park owner. But his plan to escape has gone awry. So he ducks into Lloyd and Caroline's house only to find himself caught in the middle of a marriage from hell. Lloyd and Caroline are possibly the most dysfunctional pair in the world. To make matters worse, the unhappy twosome are expecting their in-laws for dinner. Once the guests arrive, Gus -- who has already taken their son hostage -- makes Lloyd and Caroline agree to pretend he's their marriage counselor.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Hallelujah!..." - Recommended

    "...Gleeful irreverence, dark wit and cynicism....[Leary] is unexpectedly terrific....A grown-up film..."
    New York Times

    "...The sharpest dialogue heard in a Hollywood flick since the heyday of Hecht and MacArthur....The performances are uniformly excellent..." -- Rating: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...Enthusiastically mean-spirited....It has as much fun being malicious as Snow White did being squeaky clean..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...[Leary] creates an entertaining character. And Davis and Spacey, both naturally verbal, develop a manic counterpoint in their arguments that elevates them to a sort of art form..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
