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.

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.

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.
