The Family Movie Review

The trouble with this "family flick" is that at nearly two hours, it's a good hour too short.
Like when have you heard the Movie Slut say that before? Like never.

It's not a comedy that will have you doubled over with hilarity, but one that maintains a gleefully zany plot and superb comedic action from start to too-soon finish.

But these jokes, tickling as they are, are secondary to the sociopathic antics of these goodfellas and gals.

Robert de Niro, as the head of the psycho family, nailed it. And Michelle Pfeiffer, who's already been Married to the Mob, more than reprises her role.

Give thanks each day that they're not the folks next door. But do meet them at the multiplex.
