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.

Judging from the dull light that pervades every scene, The Whole Nine Yards wasn't just all shot in the same place, it was all shot on the same day.

Though the comedy often goes flat, Peet busts loose in a terrific comic performance, while the icily beautiful Henstridge adds class.

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

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.
