The Family

Item Details

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 best efforts to keep them in line, Fred Blake and his family 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.

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.

Skip this one or read the book. You've already seen the funny parts about and out-of-place angry mafia family in the witness protection program in a town in France. The humor comes from the variety of ways the f'word is inserted in to the script and the variety of ways the family punishes individuals and the local community for not mindlessly following along.

Must See - De Niro and supporting cast are great in this dark comedy; though a little too violent.

Much better than I expected. I wasn't expecting much, but it was a well done movie. Very good film editing that is noticeable throughout. The scene when DeNiro's character is watching the movie "Goodfellas" with the town residents is funny in it's irony.
