  • Summary: Retired hitman Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Willis) is living the quiet life in a beachfront bungalow in Mexico, miles away from his former life. Suddenly, an uninvited and most unwelcome connection to their past shows up on the Tudeskis' doorstep. It's Oz (Perry), their former neighbor, breathless and desperate, begging them to help rescue his wife, Cynthia (Henstridge), from the Hungarian mob. (Warner Bros.) Expand

  1. Things spin swiftly out of control with uneven acting and misfired physical gags.

    The obvious problem with The Whole Ten Yards is that it begins with the wrong kidnapping. Instead of taking Oz's wife, the criminals should have grabbed the authors of the original movie.

    An anemic attempt at Coen-style bodies-and-bowling deadpan, The Whole Nine Yards compensated for its comic shortcomings with a casual, uncharacteristically likable performance by Bruce Willis.
  4. An excruciating rehash that has virtually none of the wit and charm of the original.
  5. 25
    A fog of gloom lowers over The Whole Ten Yards, as actors who know they're in a turkey try their best to prevail.
  6. Lacks the clever twists and turns that made the original such fun. The sequel has exactly one twist, and it's not very clever.
  7. 10
    Leaden, laugh-free, lacking anything resembling a heart, mind or soul.

    Everything that was enjoyable and funny about The Whole Nine Yards was reattempted in this sequel that fell flat on its face from the word "Go." While by no means a terrible film, The Whole Ten Yards holds none of the original quirkiness, fun of the first, while also trying to work around an absurd plot that makes absolutely no sense. While somewhat funny, the film really isn't worth the watch. Expand
