Sarah Jessica Parker,
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

Bruce Willis acting like Martha Stewart is not funny. When the MPAA tamed down the sequel to PG-13 ('The Whole Nine Yards' was R), they lost all the humor too. The first one was surprisingly good (Amanda Peet stole the movie). Matthew Perry was funnier in the original (like Chandler in the first few seasons of 'Friends') but in the sequel, he is lame and unfunny (like Chandler after he gets married). Speaking of 'lame', the bad guy in this movie is incredibly annoying. I generally like Kevin Pollak, but he was unwatchable here...and so was the rest of the movie. I haven't seen such an unnecessary sequel in quite a while...
