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.'

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.

The Whole Nine Yards was only about a yard short of being a worthwhile comedy back in 2000, but its sequel, The Whole Ten Yards, doesn't even manage to get onto the playing field.

If [The Whole Nine Yards] should not have worked, then the sequel definitely shouldn't work, either. But, once again, it kind of does.

A mostly funny film with occasional dead spots that does best letting the caricatures say exactly what you'd thought they'd say in next week's episode.

Ten Yards' collection of sight gags and silliness never gels into anything more than a desperate attempt to wring laughs out of a tapped-out premise.

If The Whole Nine Yards was a by-product of the hit man genre of dark comedies launched by Quentin Tarantino and Pulp Fiction, Ten Yards is just a copy of a copy.

The sequel to The Whole Nine Yards is more afterthought than accomplishment, a cocktail made with orange juice and Champale instead of actual bubbly.

The strain needed to extend The Whole Ten Yards a yard -- and to feature length -- is so evident it breaks new pic's comedy spirit, making it a dubious member of the Sequel Hall of Shame.

Where the first pic breezed along with gags and gunplay, this forced follow-up is artificial to the hilt -- fueled on a kind of trying-too-hard hilarity that makes even good actors look bad.

Perry is good at physical comedy. But there are only so many times Oz can take pratfalls before we start to feel embarrassed for Perry for having to milk laughs from such feeble fodder.

Marginally better directed and better written than the original Nine Yards, it's still a big, empty picture full of star turns, artificial energy and jokes that don't quite work, even if stars Willis and Perry do their best to slam them across.

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.
