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.

This is one of those movies you look at quizzically: What did they think they were doing?

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

As a fan of the original, I'll be kind. The Whole Ten Yards is a bit of a disappointment.

If you find yourself pulled in with the Friday night herd to see the movie, you should be in for a tolerable enough time.

A new director fails to maintain a firm hand on the tiller, so things spin swiftly out of control with uneven acting and misfired physical gags.

None of it is funny, and to make matters worse, writer George Gallo and director Howard Deutch have somehow managed to domesticate out of Jill the goofball sensuality that gave the original its quirky edge.

... an utter disaster.

Ten Yards regathers the cast of quirky killers and neurotic nebbishes and gives them almost nothing to do.

Willis gives head cases a bad name, never quite letting even his fellow actors in on the joke that he took this particular job for the paycheck.

One of the most laughless experiences I've had at a theatre so far this year.

Perry resembles nothing so much as a jittery sitcom character plopped into a big-screen story, out of place and desperate.

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

A plotless, wretched mess that makes no sense whatsoever.

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

So mirthless is this misbegotten enterprise, the sound of fake chucklers busting a gut would at least have given us valuable clues as to when we're supposed to laugh.

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.
