Review: I was informed that there is an old Eskimo custom where the guest in an Eskimo couple’s home has to sleep with the wife as a sign of gratitude for the hospitality. “Caught” puts Joe and Betty, a Hispanic couple, in the same situation with the exception that Joe neither knows of or allowed for his guest Nick to show that kind of gratitude for the hospitality offered through his servitude at the couple’s fish market and home. If a stray is cute enough, a family member will fall in love with it enough to keep it at home. Joe is much the business traditionalist by his rebuffing of corporate takeover requests pressured on him, but this hurts his marriage, giving his newest and prospective employee a new perspective. He’s the son they always wanted to replace the son they wanted to replace, Danny. Betty still gazes at Danny’s video past to expect a good future, much as she does for Joe’s pastime despite his heart condition. Gazes are what occurs with Nick and Betty that slowly leads to the affair that lifts Betty spirits after Nick coerces Joe into selling the business for a fishing business venture. Sure enough, Danny returns with a wife and child for a surprise visit. The reality of the new living arrangements, Nick in Danny’s old room, pushes Danny to the realization of his replacement. Now, a thorn has been added to the side of Nick, Betty, and Joe. It takes a good deed by Nick against Danny as well as the knowledge of Nick’s affair that causes Danny to spiral down, even with part of the money Betty gave to help Danny, which is used against her when Joe gets the news broken to him. By the end, all four never see their futures. Half die suddenly while the other half die extremely slowly and sadly. Counting the number of holes in Olmos’ face of checking out Alonzo’s firm contours and sensuality also helps in viewing this movie but the story is plotted well despite the reality that someone would have beaten the hell out of Danny for his annoying behavior.
