The Whole Nine Yards (2000)
Critic Consensus: Despite a charming cast, The Whole Nine Yards could only tickle half of the critics' funny bones. The other half thought it an underwelming, depressing sitcom.
In this black comedy, a criminal discovers a market for murder in the suburbs. After doing time in prison, mobster Jimmy the Tulip (Bruce Willis) moves to a suburban neighborhood. But Jimmy's new neighbors (Rosanna Arquette and Matthew Perry) soon figure out who he is. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Whole Nine Yards
Almost everybody wants Matthew Perry dead in The Whole Nine Yards. This would be a good thing if it were to stop him from making more movies.
It's like one of those late Blake Edwards comedies in which very little is working, but you have to admire the attempt at some physical humor.
A movie that might have seemed amusing a couple of decades and four or five rewrites ago, but plays like an unsold sitcom in the post-Sopranos world.
The movie relies far too much on killing off characters to tie up loose ends.
Audience Reviews for The Whole Nine Yards
The Whole Nine Yards should have been a far better than what we got. The ingredients were here, but the script lacked to really make it a worthwhile comedy. Some part were funny, but most of the time, the film failed to really take off and be something memorable for film fans. The material was quite interesting, but it should have been reworked to really make it a standout film. I really wanted to enjoy this, but I was disappointed with the result we got. Some parts are funny, but most of the time, the gags falls flat, and halfway through the film, everything just falls apart. I had heard some good things about this one, but overall it fails and it has minimal laughs. This could have been something great given a rewrite or two, but the plot ends up being tiresome and tedious with no sense of how it should conclude in an effective way. Luckily Bruce Willis was interesting in his role, unfortunately the script just didn't deliver on its ideas, and it ended up being a forgettable film not worth your time. This should have been good, but it starts off good, but ends up being a failure. This was a dull film to watch, and it just ended up being a missed opportunity to making something truly worthwhile. I think they had all the necessary ingredients to make this a great comedy, but a few things seemed out of place to really make it stick out a truly funny film the way it should have been. Don't watch this one, you'd be better off watching something else in terms of comedy and The Whole Nine Yards is a bland film definitely not worth your time.
Great cast. Matthew Perry is very funny in this black comedy about a dentist whose wife hires a hit man to kill him. He gots caught up in mob contract killings.
Funny, well though out, and great casting. Worth watching overall.
