A mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of CIA Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D'Leo) can't help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the "family" way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings. Written by
In the movie, the personnel guarding the family are FBI agents. In actuality, the Witness Security Program is operated by the U.S. Marshalls Service, not the FBI. See more »
Can't you just sit down and relax and enjoy it? No offense, but this is our first ever guy's night out.
Yeah. I mean, you're probably the guy I hate the most in this whole fuckin' world. We've known each other, what, 19 years already? My theme is based on the deep respect that I have for you.
Explain how that works. How can we have a friendship when you hate me?
It works out just fine. We're best friends. I killed them all.

At the beginning, the words "father", "mother", "son" and "daughter" are shown and intersected. Some of the letters vanish, and the remaining ones spell the film's title. See more »

Not the bet movie ever, but not bad either. Whoever said it's a good family movie should define that next time. The F word is used regularly, there are some cold blooded killings and one short steamy sex scene. I guess you get that in almost any movie these days, but that does not constitute a family movie to me.
That being said, I enjoyed the movie. There were a few chuckles and not a bad storyline. I feel the storyline could have explored more though, but then again, the way it was done opens it up to a sequel or two. De Niro and Pheifer are pros and the "kids" also did a decent job of it. Additionally, it was nice to see a couple of familiar mobster faces.
