Neither one nor the other,
This review is from: The Family [DVD] (DVD)
This film from Luc Besson purports to be a black comedy and it starts promisingly enough but ends up being an all out action flick. The story is about a mafia family in witness protection hiding in France but unable to escape their own nature which eventually reveals them to their pursuers.
The acting is all good though De Niro and Pfeiffer could do this with their eyes closed and it could have been a very funny film but somewhere it gets lost between the two genres and never hits either mark satisfactorily.
That said its not a bad film and not a total waste of time to watch.
