Lazy Rendition of Mobster Movie.

This movie was fragmented and corny at best. Deniro trying to be a writer in the movie was a tease which never panned out. The son wanting to bail to Paris to become a mobster was a good idea and should have been elaborated. The love story between Belle and the Math teacher was enticing yet never delivered. If anything a little more love in this movie could have made up for it's drought. Michele Pheiffer crawling on the floor was ridiculous! I found the frequent references to supposed incredible italian food being eaten to be quite annoying because they never showed any of it. What a rip-off to have '*****' from the Sopranos in the movie. It was obvious the director tried a little too hard to revere the movie as 'gangster' when Good Fellows was screened by Deniro. The ending although good and suspenseful was too short-lived. A better alternative ending would have been they all cross-fired one another and died because none of the characters fully developed.

Dianna Agron is the best thing about this movie she is spectacular! I loved it, it was funny interesting and exciting. I can't wait to buy it when it comes out on DVD. It's got Deniro, Pheifer, Agron and Jones what else could you ask for. LOVED IT!

Mildly Entertaining Flick

This movie was a waste of a good cast. There was too much over-the-top violence without much redeeming humor or plot. OK if you have nothing else to do.

Great story, Great Action. Great Cast. The movie kept me guessing the entire time. Ya gotta see this ... it is funny and serious at the same time.

Coulda/Shoulda Been Better

When there is an all star cast, and a top notch producer in Martin Scorcese, the bar is raised significantly and expectations are higher. Unfortunately, The Family did not meet these expectations. The story was not developed well at all and there were several dry areas in the film. All the punchlines were in the commercials, so there was nothing new. I went to see this movie based solely on the cast, but I was very disappointed.
