Was an ok movie. Had some fun bits but overall wasn't great. Most of the cast was entirely unlikeable and I found myself having an incredibly hard time sympathizing with any of the family, especially the daughter, and thus had a hard time caring about what happened to them. Not a very good movie overall.

I expected way more out of this based on who was starring in it, unfortunately it just wasn't that good. The only part that was funny was the Goodfellas reference.

A clever action farce about a mob family landed in a small French town near Normandy. Soon, each member of the family began to commit their signature crimes to take care of [obstacles], all under watchful FBI agents until a vindictive mafia boss sent his assassins to town ... time to move again.

Watch "Married to the Mob" instead.

This is about as Italiano as you can get? This were most of humour is based on?

Disappointing,.. especially considering the caliber of the talent employed ! The preview made it look better than it delivered.

Definitely overrated. The trailer, which is what interested in this movie, made it look like a comical parody of mob life, etc. However, the funny scenes in the trailer were out of context and not nearly as comical in the movie. Overall, the movie was depressing and a bit sad.

Average gangster family action comedy. Too ridiculous for me. Seemed to be trying to maintain a sort of credibility, even with such an over the top premise. Some funny parts, but just not enough to keep my interest. The graphic violence seemed out of place but done well.

Fred, dad: This morning I was worth 20 million dollars. I'm probably worth double that now. I cheated death so many times in my life, I don't even think about it any more. It's like getting caught outside in a storm. You just have to avoid being hit by the lightening.

FBI agent : If I find out that you had anything even remotely to do with this, you're going to go away for a hell of a long time.
Fred: Clam down, I was with *you* all night.
FBI agent: That's the problem, your alibi is too good.
