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.

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.

Walking out of the neighborhood super market, I spotted this DVD in a bin offered for 6 bucks. With Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert DeNiro, I figured, what have I got to lose? It turned out to be about the best money I've ever spent on a gangster flick. DeNiro, of course, is a natural to portray a mobster; Pfeiffer, after her role as an innocent in "Married to the Mob," changes chameleon-like to a typical hard edged and supporting mob wife. Dianna Agron and John D'Leo, who play their teen children, are perfect in their chosen roles. And of course, the mobsters tasked with rubbing out the entire family, are dark and truly scary. Further, kudos to those who chose the musical score to add mood and color for each scene; an added factor in rounding out this thriller as one of the best for my money.

This film could also be titled,"The F-Word Movie," as it is used so often throughout the film. However, it is not offensive (to me at least) but shows the many meanings that crude expression can have from what was originally intended; its constant variety of uses is what makes this flick so darned funny. Plus, the last four words scripted for DeNiro to speak at the end left me doubled up with laughter. Buy it; borrow it; or steal it from your neighbor, and then thank Martin Scorsese for yet another great movie.

This film is both humorous and at the same time, very serious. This mafia clan is clearly unrepentant, and resents their exile in Europe. Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer play these two rolls so well. De Niro may be on the run, but he still yearns for his former life. Pfeiffer is dreading their next move, wanting to find some semblence of home, even if it is in a foreign land. The kids are the real victims in this film, they are reaping the results of their parents actions. The latter half of the film brings this fact to light, with a brutal sense of reality. The early parts of this film are very funny, if one can get by De Niro's reliance on mafia justice in his dealings with the locals. I recommend this film, both for its humor, but even more so for its reality. JRV
