Movie Reviews

  • unfortunately not as much fun for the audience
    by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • tries to exploit novelistic devices that don't translate well to film
    2 of 4 by Adam Mazmanian [The Washington Times ]
  • this unexciting, unfunny would-be action satire is filled with Italian-American stereotypes, decades-old TV-style Mafia cliches
    1 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News ]
  • 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 ]
  • the actors, especially Pfeiffer, give the script more than it deserves. But Besson's leaden touch works against light and airy. The Family is a comic souffle that never rises
    2 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • most of all, it's a missed opportunity
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • 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 ]
  • Besson knows his way around an action film, he's not as adept at comedy. The result is an often-violent, occasionally amusing fish-out-of-eau tale that plunks a family of wise guys in the French countryside with predictable results
    2 of 4 by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star ]
