Editorial Reviews

Academy Award r Winners Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones star in this dark actioncomedy from executive producer Martin Scorsese and acclaimed director Luc Besson. A Mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the Witness Protection Program after snitching on the mob. Despite Agent Stansfield's (Jones) best efforts to keep them in line, Fred Blake (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer), and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D'Leo), can't help resorting to old habits by handling their problems the 'family' way. Chaos ensues as their former Mafia cronies try to track them down, and scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings.

It was a good move for Robert DeNiro to return to something mobsterish after his turn in the bottom of my yearly movie list, "The Big Wedding". "The Family" is a comedy/crime drama from well-known action director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Leon: The Professional & Taken). Many American movie actors are going abroad to film their action movies these days and for the most part, they’ve all been pretty terrible; for instance, "Live Free or Die Hard", "Taken 2", "From Paris with Love" and "The Cold Light of Day", two of which Luc Besson had a part in. So, does "The Family" fall into that mold?

DeNiro plays Giovanni Manzoni, a mobster in the witness protection program that turned on his cronies and is now a heavily monitored and frequent mover. His family, Maggie, Belle and Warren are products of their father. They have learned a few things about getting what they want and defending themselves. With their new home in Normandy, France, they struggle to hide their nature.

The movie trailer plays into the movies comedy and the description of the movie leads with the word comedy. While I found a lot of the movie pretty funny, I think it is important to not go into the movie expecting to be humored like one of our American version crude comedies. Go into "The Family" not knowing what to expect and you’ll find that it tackles many genres of film and has a good range of comedy, action, drama, and to top it off, some quality suspense.

To be honest, some of Luc Besson’s earlier films are some of my favorite movies I’ve ever seen because those movies had amazing characters and great personality.

Don't let other reviews dissuade you from watching this film. If you enjoy movies like, Meet the Parents, or Analyze This you'll love this film. De Niro played his classic Mobster role, but with a twist of trying to be a good family man. The role of the wife and kids where a perfect family combination. We loved this movie simply put.

My wife and I enjoyed this movie. It is a typical dysfunctional family plot, with the twist of them being psychotic mob characters, which make it very funny.

I'll agree with some of the other reviews in saying that this was definitely promoted as a comedy when it is not really. That's not to say it isn't funny in some parts; it's actually quite hysterical, though I'd say it leans more toward drama, or dark comedy at the very least. None of that takes away from enjoying the film; just don't go into it expecting "Analyze This."

The cast is great, the story line not half bad, and the tension and drama are not lacking. The film pays homage to De Niro's past roles a few times, which made me laugh. The comedy isn't so much spoken as it is in the action, and the actors did very well in communicating it.

This isn't your typical mobster flick. Go in expecting nothing and you'll find yourself enjoying it.

The Family
“The Family” brings together an outstanding cast following the lead of writer/director Luc Besson. This might not be up to the very best of Besson’s work but I found it funny and entertaining. Besson also both wrote and directed “The Fifth Element” which we love so much at our house that our cat is named after one of the characters. He also wrote and directed “La Femme Nikita” a truly exciting thriller. Besson has a touch so deft and light that he has made a completely satisfying comedic film-no matter that the characters include a psychopath Mafia gangster, his loving wife, daughter and son, killers all.
It helps any movie if your leading man is Robert De Niro. It also helps if your leading lady is Machelle Pfeiffer. De Niro portrays a Mafia goon who has sold out his friends to the FBI. Pfeiffer plays his wife with her very best Brooklyn accent, something she has saved up from her role in “Married to the Mob” just for this film. She keeps us in stitches. After selling out his pals, the mobster and his family are imbedded in the Witness Protection Program. They hilariously have trouble adapting to ordinary life and end up in a small town in Normandy, France. Delicious.
“The Family” is very much R rated for bad words and casual violence. The Burke family just cannot seem to change their ways. The scenes of the teenagers adapting to their new life I found particularly funny. Not that the situations would be considered funny but because the actors and the writer/director made them funny.
Martin Scorsese is among the producers of “The Family”. He and his fellows allowed Besson a mere $30 million to make the film. This is a small, clever film of no great importance but it is leagues ahead of most of what we have seen since early summer.

It was a pretty good movie. Not as fast paced and gory as other mob movies. I liked how the kids just took care of business like the parents.
