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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Why do movies like this happen?
