Show description: It is 6pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high-strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinnie, find themselves in need of a hide-out and pick the home of the Douglases as guests begin to arrive. The pair attempt to turn Christmas Eve into a hostage situation with hilarious results!
