Moviegoers are used to seeing Robert De Niro as a kingpin in the mob, but what happens when he gets knocked down? That's the question the upcoming comedy The Family answers. De Niro plays a mobster who turns his back on the mafia; after squealing on his allies, he's forced into witness protection with his wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) and two children (Glee's Dianna Agron and John D'Leo). After a series of relocations, they wind up in France, but it's hard to make new friends when you're a fish out of the mafia.
Honestly, I love De Niro as a mobster in any context, and I get a kick out of Pfeiffer returning to her Married to the Mob roots, too. The premise is corny, but there's something about this that seems genuinely funny. I'm also looking forward to seeing Agron beat someone up with a tennis racket. The movie opens on Sept. 20, so until then, check out the trailer after the jump.
