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' worth of test-tube specimens. There's many a slip-up and betrayal before the three generations can find a common ground. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Three excellent actors and a good story. This movie makes a good choice for movie night if you can get past the language. The characters aren't angels, just real crooks played well by Connery, Hoffman and Broderick even if the latter isn't as believable. Broderick just has such an innocent face, which fits the story by adding the unexpected element. However, as the story unfolds, I never buy the why of it. It was just fun watching them all work. Nice cinematography since it served the story and didn't distract. I waited a long time to see this one and it was worth it.
