Cool black comedy - don't expect anything artful or serious and you're in for a fun ride.

I just watched "The Family" and I for one have had a very good time. This movie is gleefully dark, wickedly funny and offers great acting from all the stars involved, (who really seem to relish their parts). I was shocked when I checked IMDb and found so many comments and reviews from disappointed film fans. How can anyone complain about the violence in this dark comedy and at the same time love films like "Fargo" (or practically anything by the Coen Brothers, for that matter)? I came to the conclusion that the main reason behind all the negative reviews is that people expected something more akin to "Leon", "Goodfellas" or "The Godfather" (where the violence isn't played for laughs), when in fact this is something completely different: This is a black comedy about a group of predators who have to hide among - unbearably arrogant - sheep. You can imagine how well that will turn out (for the sheep). Anyway, I admit that with other actors involved, this would probably just have been an average mob comedy, but with the kind of talent you get here, it's hard not to have a blast. My rating: 7 out of 10.

Combines brutal visual violence with Hee Haw and pies in the face.

OK, the film really isn't as bad as Hee Haw it is actually worse. Instead of whipped cream pies in the face---baseball bats and tennis racquets are broken over heads--and every other character is shot in cold blood.

Yes, yes, black humor, gallows humor...this type humor can be very funny if done right with a lot of dryness to it. Actually witnessing violence in absurd unbelievable manners is not funny to non sadists. Maybe I am too old for this movie--somebody cracking open other people's heads with tennis rackets is not funny to me. Some things just are not funny even in make believe such as cruelty to animals.

But what do I know? The movie cost $30 million and grossed $86 million.

I watched the movie because Luc Besson was recommended in another IMDb review. Also I am a fan of De Niro whose talent is wasted here....ditto Pfieffer....Tommy Lee Jones is too old for the role.

I won't poke holes in the plot as it is too inane to bother...why would someone in the witness protection program invite the whole town to a barbecue?....blend in doesn't mean run for office.

Watch Hee Haw instead.

Don't Recommend

"F**k" is a great way to describe this one

Wow, I just left the movie theater and I am shocked about the amount of bad reviews this movie had. I am a kind of huge fan of Tommy Lee Jones and Robert De Niro so perhaps my opinion about this movie is a bit influenced by that. Despite that, I must confess I truly enjoyed this movie. It was funny and it was very interesting to see how the family get used to an all new identity every time they had to move in. The plot is basically about a family, the Mazonis, that was relocated to Normandy under the witness protection program. So they had basically to try fitting in soon to avoid being caught by the mafia members who were trying to kill them. Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro were really great playing their characters and despite not being an excellent movie, "The Family" is enjoyable and is another great addition to Luc Besson's career.
