Movie Info

You've probably already guessed that the Family Business in this all-star melodrama is the business of crime. Adapted from a novel by Vincent Patrick, the film stars Sean Connery as Jessie McMullen, the patriarch of a family of career criminals, including his son Vito (Dustin Hoffman) and grandson Adam (Matthew Broderick). Vito has gone legit, but college-educated Adam remains loyal to his grandfather. Reluctantly, Vito joins his father and son on a big-time heist involving millions of dollars'

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

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!

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.

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.
