Critic Reviews of "The Ref"Seattle TimesDecember 06, 2013
It's miraculous casting, and the Australian Davis -- for my money the finest actress around, bar none -- is simply uncanny in her command of East Coast gentility combined with razor-sharp timing and comedic expression.Los Angeles TimesDecember 06, 2013
The Ref benefits from having actor's actors like Davis and Spacey in the leads.Chicago TribuneDecember 06, 2013
It's not a bad idea, but it's not a good movie, either.Philadelphia InquirerDecember 06, 2013
Whether it's a function of sloppy editing or sloppy writing, few of these supporting players and their accompanying subplots pay off.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 07, 2011
A foulmouthed sitcom of a film.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
The Ref works virtually none of the miracles of [Richard LaGravenese's screenplay for The Fisher King,] his previous mix 'n' match effort.FlavorwireJanuary 04, 2017
It's not just a Denis Leary vehicle. It's a real movie, with drama and grace and intelligence (and slapstick and drunk Santa gags and crude laughs).Cinema CrazedDecember 29, 2013
A genuinely hysterical anti-holiday comedy.Christian Science MonitorDecember 06, 2013
This is a funny idea, but the movie is too thinly written to build any real credibility, and the cast rarely seems in tune with the vapid vulgarities that dominate the dialogue.South Florida Sun-SentinelDecember 06, 2013
The Ref is a powerfully funny adult comedy. It skewers marriage, suburban values and the trendy belief that everyone is a victim of something.Baltimore SunDecember 06, 2013
The trouble with The Ref is that it keeps running out of steam, so it seems to develop a new plot wrinkle every seven minutes. Typically, it'll run through the new idea until it runs out of steam again, then invents yet another one.People MagazineDecember 06, 2013
While director Ted Demme seems to be trying to impose a Home Alone tone, he only succeeds in lending an air of desperation, with lame subplots blundering into the picture.
