Not much to say about this one. It glistens with well developed characters and painfully funny comedy. It's simply MARVELOUS in it's writing and never looses a laugh. Well executed, well filmed for a comedy I guess it's one of those rare comedies that makes itself worthy of the money you pay to see it in the theaters. I'm already waiting for it to come out on VHS... it was THAT good!!
The Best!!! (by FMorgana)
This is one if not the one of my favorite movies. I just loved it, it has an excellent plot, perfect acting from most of the actors, specially Matthew Perry... and it's just great when you can find a movie nowadays where you can't predict the ending cause everything is possible to happen.It's very funny It's enjoyable It's a pleasure to watch, alone or even better with friends You're gonna be in for a real treat...Although, if you like this one, don't get your hopes up too high... Cause the second one "The Whole Ten Yards", is faaaaaar from this <more>
" Everybody dies Oz... Tulip?" (by Sirus_the_Virus)
The Whole nine yards is a fantastic comedy that goes the whole nine yards. I thought that was a good joke too. It's a clever comedy from director Jonathan Lynn Who did the fantastic comedy My Cousin Vinney . I didn't quite think this was as good as My Cousin Vinney, but it was still a genius comedy. Bruce Willis is actually very funny as a mobster. But, as we've seen in previous films, Bruce Willis can do anything. The Whole nine yards has tons of fantastic performances by Matthew Perry, Michael Clarke Duncan, and an actress who I will never forget. Amanda Peet. Amanda Peet is a <more>
great actress and is really funny in tons of her films. I liked The Whole nine yards because it's one of those comedies that you may not see that much of. Something different that just blows your mind. It blew mine. The best performances in the film are from Bruce Willis and Amanda Peet. Though I forgot about Rosanna Arquette, who plays Oz's Matthew Perry wife. Who has a French Canadian accent going on. The Whole nine yards is a hilarious and genius film that I will never forget.The Plot: Oz is a dentist living in Suberbia living with his wife who he hates. One day, he realizes that a mobster named Jimmy The Tulip has arrived next door and is moving in. It turns out that a lot of people want him dead. So his wife forces him to go down to Chicago to find the people that want him dead, this way she can give him a divorce.
One of my two favorite movies of the year 2000 so far! (by Xophianic)
This is my favorite movie so far of the year 2000, along with SCREAM 3 or just a little better. I have always liked Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry, and I also quite like Michael Duncan and Amanda Peet. And of course, I love a good comedy. So I was pretty excited to see THE WHOLE NINE YARDS. It did not live up to my expectations it soared past them.A resident of Canada, Oz Osercansky Matthew Perry is a dentist who is living with a wife Rosanna Arquette who he hates and she hates him, but they don't get a divorce for money reasons. When a hit man named Jimmy "the Tulip" <more>
Tudeski Bruce Willis moves in next door, Oz finds out his wife is trying to find hit men that will kill him. Jimmy, who takes a liking to Oz, doesn't agree to kill Oz, but seeks Oz's help in getting Jimmy's wife, Cynthia Natasha Henstridge , and his enemy, Yanni Kevin Pollak , together so he can kill them. Oz, along with another hit man named Frankie Figs Michael Duncan finds himself unwittingly helping, but he starts to fall in love with Cynthia and won't let her die.My plot description sounds quite bad, but the movie is very good and funny. The collection of actors in this movie are superb. Bruce Willis is good as the loveable murderer. Matthew Perry does a great comedic job as usual. Michael Duncan fit the part of the really big and scary hit man pretty well too. The adorable Amanda Peet was really good too as the hit-woman wannabe.I saw ANALYZE THIS a few days before I saw this, and I thought this one blew it away. The actors are better, the characters are cooler, the jokes are funnier I was laughing out loud on many occasions and the mixture of crime and comedy is pulled off a lot better in this movie, which is strange because there is more crime in this one than in ANALYZE THIS. Both the comedy and the crime are pulled off terrifically. Go see this movie now, you'll love it.
The problem I have with this movie, which is the only reason I give it a 9 instead of a 10, is that it's only funny once. The jokes are hysterical the first time, but each time you watch it again, they become predicted and give at most an internal chuckle. Matthew Perry does a fantastic job as a character absolutely out of his mind with fear trying to get out of the situation that he has landed himself in. Bruce Willis plays the part of an ex-mafia hit-man decent enough. I don't exactly believe he would be interested in tomatoes, but that doesn't make the punchline of that <more>
scenario any less funny. The writing of the story line is fluid and cohesive, making an enjoyable one-time viewing.
Still one of my favorites (by Michael_A_Campbell5856)
Bruce Willis and Mathew Perry should work together more. Funny movie.
Effective Screwball Comedy (by noralee)
"The Whole Nine Yards" is surprisingly effective screwball comedy that reminds me of such classics as "Bringing Up Baby" though with way higher amoral body count. At first the actors seem to be each in a parallel movie, with Matthew Perry doing physical slapstick comedy, Bruce Willis deadly serious, Rosanna Arquette just nasty, Amanda Peet being her "Jack and Jill" character one of my TV guilty pleasures and Natasha being like a super-model.Then something clicks in and it just gets funny and I couldn't help laughing and laughing.I hope Michael Clarke Duncan <more>
gets to keep those fancy suits, because it must be hard to get ones to fit him; with "Green Mile," this performance impressively shows his range. originally written 3/19/2000
Actually very funny and entertaining, with a great cast. *** out of four (by Movie-12)
THE WHOLE NINE YARDS / 2000 *** out of four Matthew Perry plays Oz, a down-on-his-luck suburban dentist whose wife, Sophie Rosanna Arquette , a spoiled French Canadian, wants him dead. She has already hired a hitman, the secretary at his office, Jill Amanda Peet , but she got to liking Oz and ended up permanently working for him. Bruce Willis is one of the nations most nitrous professional hitmen, named Jimmy. He moves in next door to Oz, conspires with Oz's spouse, and that leaves Oz in Chicago to find Jimmy's arch enemy, Ganni Gogolak Kevin Pollak , and his estranged but <more>
beautiful wife, Cynthia Natasha Henstridge over legal issues.Other important characters include Frankie Figgs Michael Clarke Duncan , a huge, bear-like individual who takes Oz to meet Janni. There is also "Rocketman" star Harland Williams as a local undercover cop who becomes involved with the devious doings of Sophie. What do all of these characters want? Jimmy, Cynthia, and Janni are after a ten million dollar prize on each other's heads; Jill wants to become a professional hitman; Frankie wants to kill people and please his leaders, and Oz just wants out of the entire mess. "The Whole Nine Yards" has an engrossingly entertaining setup, even without thorough character introduction. This kind of movie does not need character development as long as we can enjoy the premise. The comical atmosphere makes up for the few holes in the writing; the story moves along smoothly. Although we have seen this kind of material before in "Grosse Point Blank" and "Analyze This," never has it been this imaginatively zany and hilariously inventive. What makes this movie so effective is the array of perfectly cast characters. Matthew Perry is hilarious in a reactive, clumsy role that clearly fits his personality. Rosanna Arquette is also flawless in an annoying, biting character. Bruce Willis is stunningly suave in a portrayal that, for the first time in a long while, creates a calm, cool, and collected character. Amanda Peet "Whipped" and Natasha Richardson "Species" are both immensely beautiful; all they really need to do present themselves on screen for audiences to enjoy their presence. The labyrinthine plot in "The Whole Nine Yards" becomes more complicated than many viewers might expect. Bruce Willis eventually becomes more of an underlying tone in the film to propel the story along, and a lot of active material is discarded rather than performed. There is a cute little romantic subplot, also, but it does not feel like much in a plot where so much transpires, and the important story nuggets are scattered all over the board. Because of this, the third act suffers from a mild case of the hiccups when the initial conflict is completely resolved, only for the writers to build for yet another climax. This is an unusual structure...but this is an unusual movie. "The Whole Nine Yards" is not a terrific movie, but it is a funny and amusing one. Compare this comedy caper to other so-called parodies released within the past year and you will see why it is such an achievement when a comedy comes around that actually fits the definition of a comedy.
Now here is a rare breed: a mainstream movie that works at just about every level without dumbing anything down or making the average viewer think too hard. "The Whole Nine Yards" is a great movie to simply sit back and enjoy.Nicholas "Oz" Ozeransky Matthew Perry is a mild-mannered dentist whose stuck with a wife who hates him Rosanna Arquette in a hilariously over-the-top performance and a huge debt that his partner his father-in-law left him when he kicked the bucket. Then his new neighbor moves in. This neighbor, much to Oz's horror, is none other than Jimmy <more>
"The Tulip" Tudeski Bruce Willis , the infamous hit-man for the Gogolak gang. Oz's wife tells him that they should rat Jimmy out to the Gogolaks to get a "finder's fee." Oz obviously refuses, but agrees to go when his wife agrees that if he does this, she'll give him a divorce. Thus begins a hilarious story of double crosses, new romances, and hamburgers with mayonnaise.The cast is first rate. Matthew Perry is in full panic-mode, and his reactions to the situations he finds himself in and their resulting consequences are hilarious. Bruce Willis is perfectly cast as Jimmy. It's a typecast role, but Willis plays him with a slight tongue-in-cheek. It works wonderfully. While it allows for plenty of laughs, it also gives him an air of menace, which adds another layer to the humor. We are aware of Jimmy's capacity for violence, but the way Willis plays it results in moments of laughter mixed with suspense. Natasha Henstridge radiates a cool sexuality mixed with vulnerability as Jimmy's ex-wife who falls for Oz. Michael Clarke Duncan is also well-cast as Jimmy's fellow hit-man, Frankie. Kevin Pollack and Rosanna Arquette are so over-the-top that their performances must be seen to be believed.But as good as this cast is, and it's great, the film is stolen from all of them by newcomer Amanda Peet. It takes a great performer to steal scenes with actors at the top of their game. But Peet didn't just steal her scenes, she walked away with the whole movie. Peet is positively delightful as Oz's ditzy receptionist, who has more of a part to play in this than anyone realizes. Peet is hysterical; her performance should have at least gotten her an Oscar nod, if not a win."The Whole Nine Yards" is a mix of film-noir and screwball comedy. Director Jonathan Lynn has a lot of fun with the conventions of each genre, including mixing and matching the character traits of the femme-fatale and the "good girl" you'll see what I mean when you watch the movie . What I really liked is that the humor of the movie is not over-the-top exaggeration humor like The Farrelly Brothers . This is more about timing and dialogue; it's like a 1930's screwball comedy without the Hays Code. To be sure, the film does not leave out the trademark of the noir genre: the twisty plot. "The Whole Nine Yards" boasts plenty of surprises, and quite a bit of suspense. Just because this is a comedy doesn't mean you can tell where it's going.Mixing these two genres would seem impossible because more often than not, one would dilute the other. But Lynn manages to walk the line between the two opposite genres and play them both equally well. The film is well-paced, and the timing on the jokes is perfect. There are no over-the-top visual effects, and that's a good thing."The Whole Nine Yards" may not be classic film material, but it's highly entertaining. And with a movie like this, that's just about all that one could ask for.
