Not watched this in some years now and felt the urge to see it again. Very funny film.
I think "The Ref" is the american title for this film - it was Hostile Hostages over here and i think this is a much better title.
On the hut it says aspect ratio Aspect Ratio 1.85:1 as it does on Play.
I got my copy from selectcheaper a bit dearer a few weeks ago and its 4:3.
An idyllic Christmas Eve turns into a night of comic nastiness when Gus, a cat burglar with a short fuse, takes the obnoxious Chasseur family hostage after a botched burglary. The burglary is a mistake, but the Chasseurs are a disaster. Caroline and Lloyd have a marriage made in hell, an evil spawn in son Jesse and a flock of appalling relatives. You'll laugh. You'll wince. You'll be glad this family isn't yours. THE REF is a furiously funny film you don't want to miss.
