De Niro was born to play mobsters, and puts in a great performance. Pfieffer does a good turn too.

Fairly decent comedy, although nothing besides. Lots of things go boom.

Sorry to the viewers who didn't enjoy this movie, but I did! This wasn't in my opinion a hard drama mafia movie, but a dark comedy. I got what I expected from this dark COMEDY movie. So, if you expect a lot of mafia activity, (in my opinion) this movie isn't for you. I just enjoyed it!

Was an ok movie. Had some fun bits but overall wasn't great. Most of the cast was entirely unlikeable and I found myself having an incredibly hard time sympathizing with any of the family, especially the daughter, and thus had a hard time caring about what happened to them. Not a very good movie overall.

I expected way more out of this based on who was starring in it, unfortunately it just wasn't that good. The only part that was funny was the Goodfellas reference.

A clever action farce about a mob family landed in a small French town near Normandy. Soon, each member of the family began to commit their signature crimes to take care of [obstacles], all under watchful FBI agents until a vindictive mafia boss sent his assassins to town ... time to move again.

Drama not a comedy or dramedy. A very lousy drama as well.

Fred, dad: This morning I was worth 20 million dollars. I'm probably worth double that now. I cheated death so many times in my life, I don't even think about it any more. It's like getting caught outside in a storm. You just have to avoid being hit by the lightening.

FBI agent : If I find out that you had anything even remotely to do with this, you're going to go away for a hell of a long time.
Fred: Clam down, I was with *you* all night.
FBI agent: That's the problem, your alibi is too good.
