Story


In the dark action comedy "The Family", 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 (Tommy Lee Jones) best efforts to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (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, in this subversively funny film by Luc Besson.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie has holes galore. It has abrupt tonal shifts, an incoherent back story and abandoned subplots. It doesn't even try for basic credibility..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
“..instead of the print of "Some Came Running" with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, they are mis-shipped a copy of, well, something else..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
“..most of all, it's a missed opportunity..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
