About the Movie
MTV's Denis Leary stars in one of the year's most outrageous and highly acclaimed comedy hits. Leary plays an unfortunate cat burglar who becomes trapped in a fate worse than jail when he takes a bickering couple (Kevin Spacey, Judy Davis) and their annoying relatives hostage. Before long, they're driving him nuts, and the line between who is whose hostage begins to blur. His only hope for survival is to act as their referee and resolve their differences - or its going to mean instant insanity for everyone! Spend a hysterically funny evening with The Ref - you're sure to experience an irreverent and fun-filled time!

Fresh: Staying clear of any mean-spirited attitudes, The Ref is a film to warm the hearts and touch the nerves of dysfunctional families everywhere.
Rotten: A foulmouthed sitcom of a film.
Fresh: Demme brings out the comic ease in Leary.
Fresh: The Ref benefits from having actor's actors like Davis and Spacey in the leads.
Hilarious Beginning to End.
This was an excellent movie and the only surprise for me is that it is only here for rent. If you like a comedy with classic Denis Leary style humor then you will love this movie. The acting is solid from Kevin Spacey and Judy Davis.
