  • Robert De Niro – wait for it – in the role of a mobster. Now there's an original idea. show more

  • The Family is a film at once strange and intriguing. It can't seem to settle on a tone. The early eruptions of violence are treated as slapstick when they are most assuredly not. But the climactic showdown, which fairly cries out for a touch of humor, is played as a tense and grim action sequence. show more

  • Their inside jape is unfortunately not as much fun for the audience as it may have been for the filmmakers, though it does have its piquant moments. But it’s not consistently entertaining enough either as a spoof or as a thriller. show more

    Fine performances, but what could have been a good black comedy was taken down by graphic violence and an ending that completely fell apart.
