3.0 out of 5 stars Was expecting more, 27 July 2014

This review is from: The Family (DVD)
Disappointed with this film. It's as if it couldn't quite make up its mind what type of film it wanted to be. Some bits of the comedy were good, but these were far too brief for me. The last 15 minutes were by far the best when it really cranked up a gear. Something I found really annoying (and this is typical of the Americans) - Being British and having visited France on holiday on numerous occasions, I can assure everyone that if you meet a French person you have never met before they do not automatically speak English to you as they do in the film. Michelle Pfeiffer's character visited a church and the Priest just came up to her and spoke English. When Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones' characters visited the debate the place of full of French people yet the guy running the debate automatically spoke in English. Now, I understand why they did this, but it did make it very unrealistic. On this subject, the subtitles they did have when some characters spoke French were too small and the wrong colour on the screen making it very difficult to read them.

Of the two actors playing the children - John D'Leo was the best. Dianna Agron looked far too old to be playing a 16-17 year old and I think the brief sex scene between her and the tutor was totally out of sync with the rest of the film.

It was all very stereotypical mafioso when the Mafia arrived to take out the family, but this was probably the best bit of the film for me.
