Robert De Niro parodies his macho image in another Mob comedy, but unlike
he doesn't look like he's having any fun here. French writer/director Luc Besson clearly failed to inspire the actor, who gives a drowsy performance as a Mafia hood relocated from Brooklyn to Normandy with his wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) and kids in a wildly extravagant scheme by the Witness Protection Program. Pfeiffer at least makes the most of her part as the brash American "broad" and John D'Leo has his moments as her son (and chip off the old block) who turns the tables on the school bullies, but
star Dianna Agron gives an utterly vacant portrayal of the lovesick daughter with homicidal tendencies. Besson mocks his compatriots with little good humour, often using extreme violence where there should have been a sly punch line. Italian-Americans may not be too flattered either, though Besson fawns over his star, alluding to his work with Martin Scorsese in the build-up to an explosive finale. Generally, though, the visuals are as cheap as the jokes in a movie that's as stale as yesterday's baguette.
A gangster testifies against his partners in crime, before he and his family are relocated to rural France under the witness protection program. Despite their FBI handler's efforts to keep them under control, they soon return to their criminal ways - while the mobsters they betrayed are soon on their trail. Comedy thriller, with Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones.
