The Whole Nine Yards: Friday February 18, 1999

Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky (MATTHEW PERRY) is a nice dentist living in suburban Montreal. His new next door neighbor, Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (BRUCE WILLIS), is a hit man hiding out from a dangerous Chicago crime family. Despite their differences, Oz and Jimmy have one thing in common: someone's trying to kill them both. For Jimmy, avoiding a couple of hired killers is child's play. But for Oz, it's a whole new ball game.
To stay alive, they're going to have to stick together - Jimmy with his cunning and cold-blooded accuracy and Oz with his dental tools.
2000 Warner Bros.

 The People's Review of The Whole Nine Yards 


score = None
This film was incredibly flawed and worthy of some serious analyses in a large number of contexts.  Did the writer(s) of the screenplay truly believe that the following cinematic sins would make for a successful film??:
All of the characters never eat food, sleep, confirm where their unlimited funds for buying shoes, furs, and renting adjoining hotel rooms and residences comes from.  For example, where does Ashley Judd's character get her spending money from, the money for Issey Miyake shoes and boots, fur coats, airline and traine tickets to anywhere, etc.  Basically, the film was conceptually and logistically inconceivably impossible.  If I had the chance, I would contact each cast member to find out why they found the film was worthwhile, based solely upon the debacle of a script.

score = 60 
The movie is pretty funny, I give it credit for that but I would like to know what the budget was, it seemed really... poor. Especially to me since I am from Montreal and it seemed like it was a local film made by some no name guy. I really like Bruce Willis and that's what made me watch the movie, Matthew Perry was really funny too, so I guess its worth seeing once.


score = 100 
It's just too funny don't miss out on this one, worth the price

This movie was incredibly funny, Matthew Perry did a great job. Bruce Willis played his sexy role as usual. I give this movie 2 thumbs up.


score = 90 
Despite being a comedy it isn't quite. Instead of cracking jokes at every possible moment, there are only a few, but those few are timed perfect and when understood, are perfect! The storyline is pretty basic with a few twists (Jill was a hired hitman). You can't help but feel sympathy for "Oz" at certain points, and there's a little part of everyone of us in him. A terrific Movie!!

Okay, I guess it's up to me to write what the other home-reviewers have not.  This movie was good, however i felt that it lacked.... something. Matthew Perry is a very funny guy, on Friends.  Bruce Willis almost seemed to "big" to be in this movie.  I thought it progressed to an increasingly cheesy state and was relieved when the ending came.

I love this comedy!  It just had me cracking up my ass so hard.  I favorite scene was that when Oz (Matthew Perry) got in his car, and he hitted himself of the steering wheel that I could hear the horn bebbing!  Go see the movie, any kids who are at least 9 year old should watch this movie without a parent!
