The Whole Ten Yards is so unspeakably awful that I swear I felt precious brain cells melting away as my eyes took in the horror.

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

Remember the name George Gallo. Just short of a year from now, he's going to be nominated for a Razzie award for worst original screenplay.

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.

The gang that couldn't shoot straight returns for another mindless round of Three Stooges-meet-The-Sopranos mayhem.

The resources wasted on this violent and unfunny sequel could make a thousand budding filmmakers weep.

A plotless, wretched mess that makes no sense whatsoever.

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.'

The gags are flat, and the plot twists aren't enough to keep the film moving.

Most of this film is over the top and not very funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

April 12, 2004
A slapstick gun comedy, it has few laughs and even fewer imaginative moments. It is directed broadly and badly by Howard Deutch.

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

It's hard to say what the filmmakers' intent is. The characters all feel like concoctions, like synthetic movie people forged in a crucible of Red Bull during late-night meetings at the studio compound.

In watching The Whole Ten Yards, one thing is instantly clear -- the four years between films were not spent hammering out a smart, cleverly-nuanced screenplay.

[The Whole Ten Yards] is a film that doesn't need to exist.

Shot down by hammy performances and a forced plot.
Dustin Putman
April 10, 2004
One of the most embarrassingly unfunny comedies to crawl down the pike in some time.
