Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In earlier scene in the class, Warren Blake wrote on the notebook:"If it's good enough for you, it's godunov for me." Later, when it was printed on the newspaper, it said:" If it's godunov for you, it's good enough for me."See more »
Quotes:
Maggie Blake:The human body was not designed to combat saturated fat like that. The butter impregnates the tissues, and then it hardens and settles like silt. It makes your aorta stiffer than a hockey stick. Whereas olive oil - caresses your insides, leaving nothing behind but its scent.
Caputo:That's right. Oil is in the Bible.

Enjoyable Enough, 28 December 2013
Author: utgard14 from USA

Mafia boss Robert DeNiro and his family are in the witness protection program. They are relocated to France, where they have trouble with the locals. Enjoyable crime comedy but overlong. I felt like some of the characters were poorly written as well. DeNiro and the son (John D'Leo) were written best. The mother and daughter not so much. Michelle Pfeiffer is the mom and aside from one act of vengeance early on where she felt insulted by some French people in a grocery store, her character has little to do the rest of the film. The daughter (Dianna Agron) had a storyline that didn't feel authentic to me. Let's just say the early scenes establishing her character didn't fit with her storyline later in the movie. Also, and this is admittedly a huge nitpick on my part, I find it hard to believe the FBI would assign someone Tommy Lee Jones' age to any kind of field work that might be dangerous. Still, despite these complaints, it's not a bad movie. It's entertaining enough but speeding things up to get to the predictable climax would have helped a lot.
