Movie Info

Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry reprise their roles as a killer for hire and a dentist with a bad case of nerves in this sequel to the comedy hit The Whole Nine Yards. Former hitman Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) has retired from his life of crime and is living a quiet life of cooking and housekeeping in Mexico, despite the fact his wife, Jill (Amanda Peet), a would-be hired killer, still wants to keep her hand in the business. Tudeski has been able to convince the authorities he's dead

Every joke is stretched to the breaking point, and no one seems to be having any fun.

Inconsistencies in tone are minor when compared to the confusion created by the editor's butchery.

A heavily made up Kevin Pollak -- (over)playing a Hungarian gangster -- best sums up the mood: 'Thees ees reminding me of my favoreet soup opera.'

Leaden, laugh-free, lacking anything resembling a heart, mind or soul.

This appalling mess of a movie just isn't funny.

December 29, 2010 Full Review Source: Common Sense Media
Common Sense Media

Unfunny, badly acted, and made solely for the purposes of big paychecks this film is just utterly embarrassing and nonsensical. This is mindless drivel, without being able to call itself a guilty pleasure.

Proof that most sequels should be avoided, "The Whole Ten Yards" vaporizes the humor of its superior 1999 precursor.

April 19, 2009 Full Review Source:

Mostly overacted and overblown, the script tries to make 'outlandish' into outrageous but hardly ever manages it. Missing is the element of some discernible sense of reality that is essential to black comedy.

The script is so bland it barely musters a whole ten laughs.

While most sequels have nowhere to go, this sequel has nowhere it wants to go, and while most movie failures are unoriginal, this mess is simply uninspired.

One must ask why sequels such as this come to be.

Através de uma edição ligeira, procura nos convencer de que algo engraçado está acontecendo e que há uma dinâmica autêntica entre seus personagens. Não há e não está.

Please, please, please. I'm begging you, Hollywood: Don't even think about making The Whole Eleven Yards.

98 minutes of mirth-free entertainment.

Utterly pointless sequel that fails to generate even a single laugh.

Somehow I doubt we'll be seeing 'The Whole Eleven Yards'.

Nowhere near as good as the first film, and that one wasn't too brilliant either.

Film Threat

A lazy, dumb, irrelevant sequel to 2000's "The Whole Nine Yards." It gathers together most of its predecessor's cast and puts out a contract on their careers.

Because the cast is having so much fun, it's hard to blame them when the film becomes almost persistently unfunny.

April 24, 2004 Full Review Source:

Disoriented by characters always shooting and yelling at him, Chandler spends the film tripping over furniture and slamming into doors.

Audience Reviews for The Whole Ten Yards

The gang get together again to get more money. Not as interesting as first movie but still quite funny. Good cast.

I actually preferred the sequel to the original. It's not a great film but some of the spiel between the two leads is very funny. Kevin Pollak was quite funny too and points for being unpredictable!

They missed each other. This time, their aim is better.
