It's not surprising that Robert De Niro returns to gangster roles. James Cagney return to his gangster roots in 1948 with "White Heat." De Niro played a former gangster who he and his family are relocated in France under the Witness Protection Program. "The amily" is a enjoyable movie, although it not as good as some of the better gangster movies. De Niro is fine, Michelle Pfeiffer is aldo good. I'm glad that she's back on the big screen again. Her role reminds me of the part she played inb "Married to the Mob" which came out in 1988. Their kids are allright as well. Dianna Agron gave a appealing perfromance. She deserves to be on the big screen. One of the best scenes in the movie is that whe the Robert DeNiro character uses a typewriter. That's unusual for audiences who are getting use to people writing stuff on the computer.

The movie careens from comedy to suspense thriller in an illogical way. There is way too much senseless mob killing, and two guys get graphically beat nearly to death - and the latter is in the comedy part! Finally, the f-word becomes a recurring theme in the movie.

I love DeNiro, but I walked away from this one shaking my head - and wishing I had my money back.
