‘The Family’ Movie Review [VIDEO]
A family that is supposed to be under the witness protection program but they don’t help the FBI out much keeping them protected.I suppose once in the mob,basically you’re always in the mob. The ‘BOSS’ and his goons will always be trying to hunt you down. Giovanni (Robert De Niro) and his family are just that, on the run with the help of the FBI (Tommy Lee Jones).
The mom has a fetish of blowing things up, the dad is always sneaking around after being told to stay put, do not leave the yard (do you think he’d listen), the daughter is looking for her first true love and has a mean streak if you get on her bad side and the son is a swindler.
The family settles in Normandy, thinking and hoping this is their last move, yet they have a hard time keeping their noses clean. After the son puts an article in the local paper, the mob that is after them gets wind of their location and the craziness begins involving the family versus De Niro’s ex-clan as they want him and his family dead.
I give the film a 3.5 out of 5, I liked the fact it was an unusual storyline and off the beaten path from your normal comedies.
Parental Guide: It does have a lot of profanity (F-bomb) is thrown out there left and right, a brief sex scene with the daughter, some alcohol use, and it’s a gangster film so there is plenty of violence.
Now showing at the Parkwood Cinemas in Waite Park, click the link for showtimes, the film is rated ‘R’ and runs 110 minutes.
