Robert De Niro,
Jeffrey Dean Morgan,
A mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of FBI Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D'Leo) can't help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the "family" way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings.Written by
The school attended by Belle and Warren is the "lycée Jules Vallès" (i.e. Jules Vallès High School). Jules Vallès was a French journalist and writer during the nineteenth century. There is no real "lycée Jules Vallès". The school, "collège Jean Moulin in Gacé", was transformed into the school for the film. See more »
Maggie keeps looking for peanut butter as "beurre de cacahuetes"-this is not the correct French translation which is beurre d'arachide. See more »
Can't you just sit down and relax and enjoy it? In our long friendship, this is our first ever guys' night out.
Yeah. I mean, you're probably the guy I hate the most in this whole fuckin' world, but we've known each other what, nine, ten years already? My freedom is based on the deep respect that I have for you.
Explain how that works. How can we have a friendship when you hate me?
It works just fine. Look at my best friends, I killed them all.

At the beginning, the words "father", "mother", "son" and "daughter" are shown and intersected. Some of the letters vanish, and the remaining ones spell the film's title. See more »
I watched this almost expecting to be disappointed.
I ended up watching it twice.
After a few times of "things" happening they came to be expected. But I still couldn't help laughing. And really the only time I didn't laugh was because the script decided to have a couple serious moments.
Don't get me wrong. This isn't just stupid laughs. There is a plot, there is acting, there is everything that makes a great movie.
I think the only way this could have been funnier is if Joe Pesci had been in it also.
This movie literally defines "wise-guy".
