Synopsis Pfeiffer's presence brings to mind her roles from MARRIED TO THE MOB and SCARFACE...[D]eliberately off-kilter, cheerfully violent...with just enough moments of inspiration to warrant a recommendation...THE FAMILY is a fish-out-of-water/buddy comedy/Mob flick.Mr. De Niro gives a surprisingly nuanced performance of a monster offering a long list of bogus reasons to excuse his evil.It’s at its best in the brief moments when Besson plunges into complete, comic-book-panel unreality...An American ex-Mafia boss and his family are transplanted to France through the Witness Protection Program, but draw the attention of underworld figures who are determined to see them dead in this darkly humorous action comedy starring Robert De Niro, and directed by Luc Besson. Brooklyn kingpin Giovanni Manzoni (De Niro) had it all until the day he became a snitch. Now no matter how many times Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) relocates Giovanni and his family, danger is never far behind. When they blow their cover once again, Giovanni, his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer), and their two kids Warren (John D'Leo) and Belle (Dianna Agron) are shipped off to a sleepy village in France. It seems like the perfect place to escape the long arm of the lawless until the criminally inclined family resorts to their treacherous old ways, once again becoming a blip on the syndicate radar. Now the thugs are moving in, and they mean business. As the Manzonis use their unique set of skills to survive the relentless storm of bullets, bombs, and rockets, the citizens of this peaceful French village suddenly find themselves in the middle of an all-out Mafia war zone.
