Overview

Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry reprise their roles as a killer for hire and a dentist with a bad case of nerves in this sequel to the comedy hit The Whole Nine Yards. Former hitman Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski Bruce Willis has retired from his life of crime and is living a quiet life of cooking and housekeeping in Mexico, despite the fact his wife, Jill Amanda Peet, a would-be hired killer, still wants to keep her hand in the business. Tudeski has been able to convince the authorities he's dead thanks to dental records falsified by his former neighbor Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky Matthew Perry, who lives in Los Angeles. But Oseransky discovers that not everyone is fooled by Tudeski's handiwork when his wife, Cynthia Natasha Henstridge, is kidnapped by Lazlo Gogolak Kevin Pollak and his goons. Gogolak is a high-ranking member of the Hungarian mafia, and Tudeski previously murdered his son, so he's abducted Cynthia in order to get Oseransky to reveal the hired killer's current whereabouts. But Tudeski has come to like the quiet life, and isn't so sure he wants to face Gogolak and his crew for the sake of a jittery dentist who once did him a favor. Most of the principle cast of The Whole Nine Yards returned for this sequel, though director Howard Deutch stepped in to replace Jonathan Lynn, who was working on The Fighting Temptations when The Whole Ten Yards went into production.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The unlikely teaming of action hero Bruce Willis and sitcom star Matthew Perry helped make the farcical black comedy The Whole Nine Yards a surprise comedy hit in 2000, and the boys are together again in this equally funny sequel. Perpetually fearful dentist Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky Perry has good reason to be afraid after Hungarian mobsters kidnap his beautiful wife, Cynthia Natasha Henstridge. Too scared to get aid from the police, Oz turns to his old nemesis, former hit man Jimmy the Tulip Willis, for help. But the now-retired Jimmy and his wife, Jill Amanda Peet, have their own problems: Mobster Lazlo Gogolak Kevin Pollak, eager to settle an old score, has found out where they're living. Director Howard Deutch weaves these seemingly disparate plot threads into a comedic quilt. Perry once again demonstrates a flair for physical comedy that complements his facile line delivery, and Willis shows a willingness to send up his post-Die Hard image as a tough guy. The only complaint is that the ravishing Henstridge isn't on screen as much as her costars, although she makes the most of her relatively few opportunities to score laughs. The denouement is a little silly, and some of the verbal gags fall flat, but overall The Whole Ten Yards can be depended upon for a rollicking good time.

    Definitely Kevin Pollak's movie

    I remember watching Stop with the Kicking on HBO and instantly becoming a fan of Kevin Pollak. Finally someone gives him a chance to steal the show from a headlining star or stars. Matt Perry went overboard with the pratfalls, Willis was okay, but couldn't fall in love with the role.

    A Run-on That Strays Too Far

    The tempo of Whole Nine Yards was never rush and the humor was ingenious. By the time Whole Ten Yards came around, the story seemed pieced together from unordered scraps and snapshots (the poorly recorded commentary would agree). The humor in the original romantic comedy was lost; replacing it are the slapstick gags which aren't really funny at all. If you want to see the Whole Ten Yards because you liked the Whole Nine Yards, this investment will be a disappointment.

    Follows the sequel is not as good rule.

    Just OK. Rent it at a discount. It is not as good as the first one but is not awful, just OK.
