An aging alcoholic cop is assigned the task of escorting a witness from police custody to a courthouse 16 blocks away. There are, however, chaotic forces at work that prevent them from making it in one piece.
When a family is held hostage, former hostage negotiator Jeff Talley arrives at the scene. Talley's own family is kidnapped and Talley must decide which is more important: saving a family he doesn't even know or saving his own family.

Coming from a police family, Tom Hardy ends up fighting his uncle after the murder of his father. Tom believes the killer is another cop and goes on the record with his allegations. Demoted then to river duty, the killer taunts Tom.
Sarah Jessica Parker,
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

I really liked the Whole Nine Yards. Perhaps a little overdone, but very enjoyable. And Natasha Henstridge was gorgeous! The Whole Ten Yards was a disappointment. The plot was a retread, and the chemistry between Jimmy and Oz was watered down from the first movie. And as others have pointed out, Bruce Willis' crying was both poorly done and poorly conceived. Also, Jimmy's rotten behavior towards Oz and his wife was so out of character from what was established in the first movie, and his bizarre behavior in the beginning was inadequately justified. Furthermore, Kevin Pollack was more incomprehensible in this movie than in the previous one, which is saying something. I actually regretted seeing this movie, because it to some extent spoiled the nice feeling I got from watching the first one.
