Storyline Heading
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, his wife Maggie and their children, Belle and Warren, 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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy (Dark) Action - While billed as an action comedy, there's actually very little action until the very end, most of the film being a dark fish-out-of-water comedy. Violence, constant language, and some adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids. Fans of the stars should be pleased, but out of the recognizable faces, Tommy Lee Jones has a fairly small supporting role.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The Family moves along breezily with a fast pace and light tone.

USA Today Full Review
Average A bland and bloody comedy that doesn't make good enough use of its premise, setting or impressive cast.

Washington Post Full Review
Poor Little to laugh about in dark comedy 'The Family'

NY Post Full Review
Poor Robert De Niro bores in 'The Family'.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 77 moviegoers:
TEENS:The two males loved "The Family."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Two males rated it above average and one rated it average. Only one of the four females enjoyed it very much. The other three only rated it average.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very similar. About a third loved it with close to another third rating it above average. Unfortunately, better than a third rated it average, which indicates an enjoyable, but not memorable, movie and is a bit on the low side. A few even rated it below average.
