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.

Customer Reviews

It was a good movie with a great cast.
christine16
Didn't like the movie, not funny, kind of boring, thought it was going to be hilariously funny.
Belinda McCain
The plot rambles a bit and there isn't enough character development.

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.

This movie is truly a little gem... it is packed with humor REAL HUMOR not teenagers smoking pot and looking up teachers dresses... it is about a MOB family who needs to be protected after I guess rating on mob leaders... they go to France... and the world they create and live in makes them tough and so far ahead of the 'normally' slow intellect of others... it's got to be hilarious! It does have one or two dramatic moments like the last 15 minutes or so of the film when their cover gets blown... but it is entertaining... and Michelle does an amazing job as does the mater actor... De Niro. Worth owning, worth watching more than once. loved it. Didn't give it five because it obviously was not a major movie or release. But you'll love it if you still have managed to keep a sense of humor after life has kicked your ass enough times... LOL!

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.

Format: DVD
Fred Blake / Giovanni Manzoni (Robert De Niro) and family are in the witness protection program. The mafia has a $20 million price tag on their heads. They have just moved into Normandy. Tommy Lee Jones is their FBI contact. The movie plays light Italian music to induce us into thinking it is a comedy. There are numerous humorous moments, but it is far from a knee slapper. The characters are stereotyped, as is the mafia, minus the token character named Fat Tony...they use Fat Willie instead.

The family has to endure the snobbish French, all the while desiring to smash their faces, which sometimes they do. The writing was lackluster and flat. As contradictory as this sounds, the film relies heavily on stereotypes, yet at the same time fails to exploit the stereotypes to create a smart comedy. If you are going to do one, you have to do the other.

The kids at school scene begins as if it is going to be a smart comedy, but then fizzles. The affection Belle (Dianna Agron) develops for her math tutor was a complete bore and waste of time. Both De Niro's character and his wife Michelle Pfeiffer were poorly utilized outside of a few scenes.

Makes for a decent rental. Wait for a price crash to own.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, brief sex scene, no nudity.
