Hysterical comedy that features excellent performances from a great cast. Directed by Ted Demme (Jonathan’s nephew), it stars Denis Leary as a house burglar who breaks into the posh house of an unhappy couple (Judy Davis, Kevin Spacey). Although he succeeds in tying them up and making for the silverware, he has no idea what’s in store for him when they start unleashing their marital troubles all over him. Witty dialogue and marvelous characterizations, good for a lot of laughs.
