The tagline of the movie should have been, 'A family that kills together, stays together'. You're welcome. Anywhos. it was about time Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer got paired up, I mean seriously though. It is a family mob movie, you'd think it would be rated PG-13 considering the premise. But no, it's rated R. Which I find unnecessary, cause then it should just be a serious, gritty, real mob drama.
Anyway, the movie follows mob boss Fred Manzoni(De Niro) and his family who are put into the witness protection program. They are relocated to Normandy, France, where they are trying to keep a low profile. Maggie(Michelle Pfieffer) takes comfort in the church in their new hometown. The kids, Belle(Dianna Agron) and Warren(John D'Leo) have to start a new school. Each of them try to adjust in their own way, but all have some inner rage.
I had an idea of the movie going in, so I wasn't overly disappointed. I figured it would be a bit cheesy and take bits and pieces from the classic mob movies, which is what it did. I couldn't really take Dianna Agron seriously, but it didn't really take away from the movie. Her love interest was a really adorable French guy. He was basically a mixture of Andrew Garfield and Julian Morris.
The best part of the movie was when De Niro refers to his own movie. If you are a fan of his or just familiar with his movies, you'll understand the reference. It was just classic. I love him for doing it. That single handedly made the movie worth it. If you don't take the movie too seriously, it's pretty good.
