The dog was good

**Spoiler**

The dog was the best actor in the film. Had all the best lines but never hogged the scenes. He delivered his lines with style, feeling and perfect diction. His role demanded a harmonious interaction with the other actors.

Everybody else? You've got to be kidding. Their lines came right off a cereal box, their characters were despicable. Setting a family of illiterate gangsters in rural France where all the French people speak near-perfect English -- even in school -- was insulting. The audience is supposed to buy into this bull?

I've come to the conclusion that certain 'actors' are rotated thru on a cycle, repeating their signature performances for audiences more interested in killing time than in being entertained. The audiences are as typecast as the actors.

The dog was good.

"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.

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.
