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
I watched this almost expecting to be disappointed.
I ended up watching it twice.
After a few times of "things" happening they came to be expected. But I still couldn't help laughing. And really the only time I didn't laugh was because the script decided to have a couple serious moments.
Don't get me wrong. This isn't just stupid laughs. There is a plot, there is acting, there is everything that makes a great movie.
I think the only way this could have been funnier is if Joe Pesci had been in it also.
This movie literally defines "wise-guy".
