Movie Info

Two Mafia gunmen give new meaning to the phrase "keeping it in the family" in this offbeat comedy. Danny (Christopher Gartin) and Stephen (Greg Lauren) are a pair of mob enforcers who see to it that no one crosses the Family and lives to tell about it. However, Danny and Stephen are hit men with a difference -- they're also lovers; and while they know how to get rid of troublemakers, little things like cooking and sewing are not their strong suits. They find themselves thrown for a loop when Stephen's parents (Frank Pellegrino and Beth Fowler) stop by for an unexpected visit, which leaves them with a bit of explaining to do, about their occupations and their lifestyle. Friends and Family also features Tony Lo Bianco, Tovah Feldshuh, and Anna Maria Alberghetti.

Critic Reviews for Friends and Family

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Which is worse? Lame jokes about gays or lame jokes about the mob?

December 26, 2003 | Rating: 1/5

There's no rhythm or style to any of it, just the dismal feeling that the filmmakers have seen La Cage Aux Folles and The Godfather too many times.

October 3, 2003 | Rating: 1/5

An overloaded, slow-moving series of predictable jokes and forced situations.

October 2, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

First-timer Coury's fast pace can't outrun Joseph Triebwasser's predictable script, saddled with mobster clichés and queer stereotypes.

September 30, 2003 | Full Review…

Predictable fun, but fun all the same.

June 19, 2003 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Painless, sweet comedy.
