I'm going to take a stab, and say that it is "The Ref", with Denis Leary and Kevin Spacey, released in 1994. It's about a criminal that gets stuck in a house with a dysfunctional family at Christmas, and it is actually a very funny dark comedy.

It's not a perfect match for your description, but this sounds a lot like Three Men and a Baby, an American film from 1987 directed by Leonard Nimoy.
