Some very funny moments, but not for kids.

There are a number of genuinely clever twists and ideas that it's unfortunate that someone decided to muck it up with cheap slapstick.

Comes as close as a movie can to being a successful comedy without making it.

Matthew Perry acaba revelando-se um protagonista carismático e divertido.

Perry saves the day with his inspired fish-out-of-water silliness.

Nothing more than standard lowbrow fare featuring a little bathroom humor, lots of pratfalls, and an awfully silly army of hackneyed bumblers, plotters, wimps and Jezebels.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

The infrequent laughs are forced, and the movie feels as stale as a month-old focaccia.

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.

Perry makes the slapstick humor work with a limber body and good timing, but he can't do much with the stale jokes.

Uun ejemplo más de que en Hollywood siguen haciendo falta las buenas ideas y, sobretodo, quien las lleve a cabo
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

There's precious little that's funny about [Perry's] frantic stab at farce--and, since that's the primary commodity of The Whole Nine Yards, it makes a long haul.

It starts much too slowly, and there are some unfortunate R-rated tendencies that seem excessive, in spite of the already dark material.

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.

I would crawl the whole nine yards over broken glass to get away from ever having to see this picture again.

If Willis gives you the willies, just say no.

The more frenzied the action gets, the duller the film becomes.

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 Whole Nine Yards does not go the distance.
