Storyline

Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by his former neighbor Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky (Matthew Perry), retired hit man Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) 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 (Kevin Pollak), a childhood rival of Jimmy's and another notorious hit man. Oz, Jimmy and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards--and then some--to manage the mounting Mafioso mayhem. Written by Sujit R. Varma

The whole ten yards... no good
10 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
