The Family

Another movie that we rented a few weeks ago was called The Family.

The Family

Director: Luc Besson

Stars: Robert De NiroMichelle Pfeiffer, and  Dianna Agron

Runtime: 1 hour 51 minutes

Plot Summary: (from IMDb) 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 CIA Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) 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 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.

Rating: On Demand

This was a really cute little movie… I love Tommy Lee Jones and he played his typical character (hello lawman). Dianna Agron was awesome as Belle – she had some serious anger issues and had a great way of “resolving” them. Each character had their little piece of mafia that they just couldn’t give up. If you’re expecting some sort of cinematic masterpiece, this isn’t the movie for you. If you want a funny, entertaining movie for the evening, rent away!

Ratings Explanation:

  • Theater: This means the movie is awesome. Go see this movie in the theater – well worth the $100 you’ll spend for a night out to see it on the big screen!
  • On Demand: Since no one actually rents movies anymore, this category has changed to On Demand. This means it’s a great movie, but it is as good at home as it is in the theater and worth seeing a little sooner.
  • TV: This means the movie is ok. Wait for it to show up on HBO and see it for free.
  • Skip It: Movie sucks, don’t waste your time.
