    This is a comedy that´s not funny, enjoyable or, at least, entertaining. That´s the reason why, "The Whole Nine Yards" is just a movie that tries to copy all the forced cliches of the Mob genre. If that´s the intention of director Lynn (to make a farce or a parody of the genre), the result is mediocre. As a comedy, this movie sucks.

If that´s the intention of director Lynn (to make a farce or a parody of the genre), the result is mediocre. As a comedy, this movie sucks. Contains all the pathetic cliches of the mobsters comedy, and, worst of all, doesn´t provoke any laugh or any smile; all looks tired, forced, with the kind of Matthew Perry comedy (slapstick and a lot of stupidity) and a really annoying accent from Roxanna Arquette. "The Whole Nine Yards" worth just for the macabre humor (Amanda Peet steals the show), but as a whole is just a few inches. Collapse

    Stupid, empty and -- worst of all -- fantastically boring.

    A funny, frenetic and surprising comedy.
  3. It provides the first genuine laughs I've had at the movies in this young year.
