Comfortable mob based family comedy. DeNiro is great as usual and their is a real funny reference to his earlier movie work that I think you might like.

If we have a family at all based on love or lust,this is an example of how our elite slave masters would brainwash them to be.That's the real purpose of why they allowed this film to be made and released,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

De Niro was born to play mobsters, and puts in a great performance. Pfieffer does a good turn too.

Fairly decent comedy, although nothing besides. Lots of things go boom.

Sorry to the viewers who didn't enjoy this movie, but I did! This wasn't in my opinion a hard drama mafia movie, but a dark comedy. I got what I expected from this dark COMEDY movie. So, if you expect a lot of mafia activity, (in my opinion) this movie isn't for you. I just enjoyed it!

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.

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.
