At the end of this takeoff on the bumbling hitman-gangster formula, Matthew Perry keeps repeating how confused he's been because he wasn't let in on The Plan. Who was?

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

This is the kind of farce Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis churned out when they teamed up for The Great Race and Peter Falk and Alan Arkin gave us in The In-Laws.

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.

Though still fun, silly and occasionally very funny, the sequel falls a few inches short of 'The Whole Nine Yards.'

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.

Please, please, please. I'm begging you, Hollywood: Don't even think about making The Whole Eleven Yards.
