    Adam Sandler finally has a good excuse: The devil made him do it.

    For a bighearted effort like this one, some patience on the audience's part is not too much to ask. Go ahead. Take a chance.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    The picture, directed by Rick Famuyiwa, becomes a juggling act, contrasting the efforts of the three grown-up buddies to get to a wedding on time, with flashbacks of their youth.

    The specifics of their predicament are well handled -- being thrown in a Third World prison may be every tourist's nightmare -- even if the movie eventually goes soft and squishy.

    Summoning silliness Roman Polanski salutes and spoofs satanic thrillers .

    Solondz should have called this one "So-So Storytelling."
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    There are times when watching this film is like a near-death experience.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    It is well-made in an old-fashioned way, and its straight-arrow lack of cynicism may be old- fashioned as well.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Before it runs off track--it does have some spectacular moments.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    A pleasant myth.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    At least a half monty.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    It's called One, and the hemorrhaging begins with the so-called story, which doesn't quite add up to one.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Wants to be a brightly colored bubble but has trouble getting aloft.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    The movie's gimmick for airing the contents of a woman's head is not unlike that used for the dogs and tots in those "Look Who's Talking" movies.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    This land of sweetness and light may appeal to many, but to some it is going to seem like living hell.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    The glossy ensemble cast is consistently interesting.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Poetry, lesbian sex and murder might be a killer combination if a deadly pace weren't included in the mix.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    For quite of few of The Whole Nine Yards, it appears that the most clever thing in the movie is going to be the opening credits, monstrous close-ups of the morning toothbrushing routine.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    At its most interesting, and a bit frightening, when Moore starts to get a little loony. Too bad they didn't follow through and make this more of a psychological thriller than a melodrama.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    When the film sticks with the eccentric comedy of a highborn woman attracted to a preoccupied genius, it works splendidly. When it strays into melodrama, it is as ill-equipped as Luzhin.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    It's more psychological than a genre movie, and that is the source of both its greatest interest and its biggest problem.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Beat Takeshi fans wouldn't think of missing this one. Moviegoers who hate violence wouldn't be caught dead at it.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Keeps sinking into its own grimness.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    If the movie sometimes seems not to come to much either, it does have something to say to those patient enough to stick with it.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    It's good for a few guffaws and chuckles, but in between the screen has a tendency to stretch at the corners and go flat.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    There is a very good movie stuck somewhere on The Thirteenth Floor trying to get out. Too bad this isn't it.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence are back together and give both of their careers some new life in this sentimental comedy.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    It is maliciously entertaining, up to a point.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Bob Graham
    Rich supplies some eloquent grace notes, and Van Sant uses them to make understated music.
    • 73 Metascore

    It is wonderful to see how Sheedy gives shape to this performance -- her eyes, a photographer's eyes, carefully sizing everything up. [18 June 1998, Daily Notebook, p.E1]
