"Lady, your husband ain't dead. He's hiding!"



I know, very pleasant thought for Christmas...but if you've seen The Ref, you'll understand. This movie is ancient, and I know I fell asleep the first time I saw it...but in my defense I had been up since 3 and spent the day in NYC...so I was entitled to want some shut eye!

I think my favorite person right now is
Denis Leary. As my friend Linda would say: "he's mint." I hope you all caught his Christmas special on Comedy Central...it will be highlighted in a later Christmas rant! But for right now you have to deal with The Ref because I'm frigging exhausted.

Basically, Leary takes a family hostage at Christmas, and soon learns to regret it as the family, like most, is not without drama. What's supposed to be a simple heist turns into a night where the bad guy becomes the therapist to the family...but it's Leary...so he could give a high holy crap. His one liners, per usual, are priceless....his interaction with the mother in-law is especially captivating. So enjoy, there's no
Lenny Clarke...but B.D. Wong is in it...so it's a win win!!

This is one of my mom's favorite movies... she laughed for hours after seeing it. Seriously, good pick, Mo!
