Blu-ray Review: The Family

The Family (DeNiro)

An above-average cast can’t save this mob comedy from French director Luc Besson.  Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer star as husband and wife in a witness protection program.  They, and their two kids, are hiding from a mafia don sent to prison along with many of his confederates thanks to the testimony of DeNiro’s character.  Film critic Paul Chambers reviews “The Family.”
