THE FAMILY @ Landmark, Sunday, 9/15, 4:50 PM

Synopsis:

In the off-beat 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 the best efforts of Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert DeNiro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) can't help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings in this darkly funny film by Luc Besson (Taken, Transporter).

    With such stellar stars, I was disappointed,alittle cartoonish for me
    it zigged and zagged.

    Sold as a comedy of sorts, this movie is compromised by very graphic violence that seems gratuitous and out of place, muting the laughter. Violent black comedies can work (Seven Psychopaths comes to mind), but the timing is off here, and the narrative mood changes from comedy to drama inconsistently...great cast, though...:)

    a combo between dark humor and violence.

    It was certainly off----the beaten path movie.

    Thank goodness for the dinner after the movie. It was fantastic, meeting such wonderful people. My expectation for the movie turned out to be disappointing....what a waste of fine acting talent.

    No, it wasn't a quality movie..More like sit com with angst. It helped to eat popcorn. I liked the acting, though, and it was great to see Michelle.

    I know that the violence was deliberately over the top and cartoonish but what really got to me was the killing of families and the scenes of kids beating up other kids. And the non-violent scenes just weren't funny. I kept trying to find something to smile about and couldn't. Definitely not in a class with, for instance, Prizzi's Honor or The Sopranos. Not close.

    I thought it was a great summer movie and didn't take the violence seriously.

    You didn't flake, Beth. I have walked out of movies that I couldn't stand, and I know what that feels like!

    My apologies for flaking out on all of you! I found the film to be so egregiously violent and otherwise wit-less, that I had to leave. I haven't walked out on a movie in many years but I couldn't take any more of it!
