9 Christmas Movies That Aren’t Actually Christmas Movies

THE REF | 1994 | Own for $5 @ Amazon.com
A burglar (Denis Leary) who’s on the run from the cops breaks into the home of a miserable couple (Kevin Spacey and Judy Davis) on Christmas Eve and takes them hostage. But the joke’s on him when their incessant bickering, conniving son, and dickhead in-laws drive him crazy. So instead of looting the place, he ends up playing Dr. Phil and helping the couple work through their differences. And yes, that sounds like the plot of an awful movie, but it’s actually pretty good.
