Based on the trailer I expected this to be a comedy, however, while it did have some comedic moments it definitely wasn't a comedy in the traditional sense. Overall the movie was okay, but not one I would recommend to anyone. I expected a lot more from Luc Besson.

Funny, violent, slightly ridiculous and good entertainment. Robert De Niro's acting is wonderful. The rest of the family follows in the father's footsteps.

“The Family” is predictable and ultimately, not very interesting. Perhaps it needed to include more of the family’s background, their lives prior to entering the witness protection program. Also, there’s no clear protagonist; each member vies for the position at one point or another.

It's fun to watch a family of witness-protection-program folks try to fit in to a small Normandy village. Or, rather, how they use their Mafia skills to impose their will on the locals.

Besson, Scorsese, De Niro, Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones, all in a thoroughly enjoyable dark comedy.

You need to treat this as a dark comedy and then it’s not so bad. The scene with Goodfellas is brilliant!! Overall an OK movie, worth the watch.

Comfortable mob based family comedy. DeNiro is great as usual and their is a real funny reference to his earlier movie work that I think you might like.

If we have a family at all based on love or lust,this is an example of how our elite slave masters would brainwash them to be.That's the real purpose of why they allowed this film to be made and released,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

De Niro was born to play mobsters, and puts in a great performance. Pfieffer does a good turn too.

Fred, dad: This morning I was worth 20 million dollars. I'm probably worth double that now. I cheated death so many times in my life, I don't even think about it any more. It's like getting caught outside in a storm. You just have to avoid being hit by the lightening.

FBI agent : If I find out that you had anything even remotely to do with this, you're going to go away for a hell of a long time.
Fred: Clam down, I was with *you* all night.
FBI agent: That's the problem, your alibi is too good.
