Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by his former neighbor Nicholas Oz Oseransky, retired hitman Jimmy The Tulip Tudeski now spends his days compulsively cleaning his house and perfecting his culinary skills with his wife, Jill, a purported assassin who has yet to pull off a clean hit. Suddenly, an uninvited and unwelcome connection to their past unexpectedly shows up on Jimmy and Jill's doorstep: it's Oz, and he's begging them to help him rescue his wife from the Hungarian mob. To complicate matters even further, the men, who are out to get Oz, are led by Lazlo Gogolak, a childhood rival of Jimmy's and another notorious hitman. Oz, Jimmy and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards--and then some--to manage the mounting Mafioso mayhem. Written by

At the beginning of the film, when Jill is describing her attempted hit at the hotel and the things that went wrong, the camera cuts back and forth between Jimmy/Jill and flashbacks of the attempted hit. In all the flashbacks, Jill is shown to have brought a shotgun along as her weapon, but in one very brief cut, she turns around and is holding a semi-auto handgun in both hands, and then less than a second later, she's holding the shotgun again.

Where did he get, Oz?
Nicholas 'Oz' Oseransky:
I don't know.
[in a flash, Jill is holding the point of a knife to his Adam's Apple]
Nicholas 'Oz' Oseransky:
It's Cynthia's; she got it from her grandmother when she was a child, and Cynthia gave it to Jimmy for good luck on hits.

You say you're not a squealer! Huh?

The Whole Nine Yards was one of my favorite movies of all time! Absolutely hilarious. However, this movie was really a downfall. The characters were horrible. Bruce Willis' character becomes entirely too false. The new mobster group just irritated me every time I saw them on the screen. Matthew Perry is the only one to deliver a true performance. He's great! The plot line of this story is no good. It's incredibly dull, and not really fun. There were, as expected, a few really great parts to make the film alright. I did laugh here, and there, but I did regret renting the film. What a bummer. If you're looking for a movie that has nothing, you found it. However... But I, very regretfully..., would not recommend this movie.
