The Whole Ten Yards

2006-03-30 12:32

Retired hit man Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) is enjoying the quiet life in a beachfront bungalow in Mexico.

Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by onetime neighbour Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky, (Matthew Perry) at the end of The Whole Nine Yards, Jimmy double-crossed the Gogolak gang and escaped the Feds by faking his own death. Now, secure in his Baja hideaway, Jimmy has traded in his shotgun for a dust buster and is learning to channel his natural intensity into more domestic pursuits like cleaning, decorating and perfecting his culinary skills.

The Oz shows up on their doorstep, breathless and desperate, begging them to help rescue his wife, Cynthia (Natasha Henstridge), who has been kidnapped by the Gogolaks.

Jimmy couldn't be less interested. It's not his job anymore. But before he can toss Oz out on his ear, more gate-crashers arrive. Newly paroled mob boss Lazlo Gogolak (Kevin Pollak) and his goons have followed Oz down from L.A. and right into Jimmy's front yard. Now Jimmy, Oz and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards - and then some - to save Cynthia and teach Lazlo a lesson.

What the critics are saying:

"...overestimates both our affection for and patience with its largely unpleasant protagonists."
- Neil Smith, BBCi Films

"This is one of those movies you look at quizzically: What did they think they were doing?"
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Hollywood hackwork even by the standards of Grumpier Old Men director Howard Deutch, Ten Yards is a labor of greed that reeks of contempt for the audience."
- Jonathan Foreman, New York Post

If you enjoyed "The Whole Nine Yards" do yourself a favour and avoid this empty and irritating sequel - it will only ruin any good memories of the mildly amusing original.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

2016-10-14 07:38

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
