Chicago Sun-Times
A subtle but unmistakable aura of jolliness sneaks from the screen.

Boston Globe
Light on its feet and reveling in its deviousness, it stays one step ahead of us .

New York Daily News
It provides the first genuine laughs I've had at the movies in this young year.

New York Post
An offer you shouldn't refuse: It's laugh-out-loud, side-splitting funny.

San Francisco Examiner
It's not easy to wrench belly laughs out of contract killing, but Nine Yards does just that.

A sometimes clever, sometimes clumsy movie.

Rolling Stone
The film falls short; only Peet goes the whole nine yards.

San Francisco Chronicle
For quite of few of The Whole Nine Yards, it appears that the most clever thing in the movie is going to be the opening credits, monstrous close-ups of the morning toothbrushing routine.
50
USA Today
A comedy without much zing but with an occasional zing-er that enables the film to pick up . . . well, if not nine yards, maybe an inch or two on the gridiron.

Mr. Showbiz
It's so plot heavy it never finds its nimble comic rhythm.
25
Entertainment Weekly
A convoluted ''dweeb meets the Mob'' farce in which everyone is trying to kill everyone else, but it's the movie that's the real corpse -- albeit a busy, twitching one.
