Michelle Pfeiffer [L] and Robert De Niro [R] in 'The Family'
How many bad films do you have to be in to wipe away the brilliant reputation your good films brought you? That’s a question Robert De Niro might have to start asking himself soon. Another stuff-it-with-movie-legends-and-see-what-sticks attempt that, like many others of a similar ilk, seems to have failed miserably.
“Despite a promising trailer and a great cast, this French-American comedy-thriller is a complete misfire because Luc Besson seems unclear about how to create a black comedy. He merely mixes silliness and violence, but the script is so lazy that it's neither funny nor suspenseful. With the talent on screen we keep hoping everything will come together at some point, but it never does.”
