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

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 »

A waste of actors, infantile storyline, confusing, full of clichés! The longest 2 hours of my life. The dialog is so unoriginal, some lines I've heard a thousand times before. The teenagers of the movie seemed like cartoons. The makeup looks like a plaster. The mobsters looked like coming our of a Dick Tracy movie. A waste of scenery. Save your 11 dollars. I guess Michelle Pfiffer was desperate to work. But DeNiro? I don't understand why would he let his name be part of this fiasco. I don't think this movie will last more than a week. Please spread the word and let's save other people the torture. It is also in my list of worst of the decade. They should pay viewers to see this movie.
