Critic Reviews for Family Business
The pleasure is watching Connery shine as a roguish criminal in a story line that never gels.
A terrific seriocomic crime caper that nobody knew how to sell. Often feels like a 1970s movie that somehow ended up in 1989.
a bit of a mess
Utterly forgettable, even with its great cast
Star-studded cliched rubbish
Just barely worth checking out, and even then, it's only for the actors.
Audience Reviews for Family Business
A great cast but not a great film. Falls short of its potential but still worth a watch if it?s on TV!More
Three generations of robbers, played by top actors, creates an interesting chemistry and chance for fun scenes. The relationship between the grandson (Matthew Broderick) and his grandfather (Sean Connery) is cool; the spike is with the daddy Dustin Hoffman. There's some sadness to be expected with the fun, however.More
Bloody dull drama about a three-generation crime family and this is one of my worst Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman and Matthew Broderick's movie.More
