Product Description

When hitman Jimmy 'The Tulip' (Bruce Willis) hides out from the mob in a quiet Montreal suburb fate conspires to interwine his path with that of his dentist neighbour Oz Oseransky (Matthew Perry). Oz's wife Sophie (Rosanna Arquette) persuades Oz to travel to Chicago and reveal Jimmy's whereabouts to the mob, then in order to keep the anticipated reward money all for herself, takes out a contract on Oz's life. However, when Oz returns to Montreal he finds himself thrown together with Jimmy - they both have contracts on their lives and, in order to stay alive, have to work together.


Have a little patience with The Whole Nine Yards, an agreeably convoluted caper, and in the end you'll find it a modestly entertaining yarn. But forbearance is necessary because, truthfully, the first half-hour of the movie promises a train wreck of epic proportions.

Matthew Perry stars as a mild-mannered Montreal dentist, married to a French-Canadian shrew (Rosanna Arquette), whose new next-door neighbour (Bruce Willis) just happens to be a notorious mob hit-man out on parole. The wife, catching the whiff of easy money and probably just hoping to put hubby in harms way, orders her hen pecked spouse to rat out the gunman to his former employers, who have many compelling reasons to want him dead. Needless to say, complications--and plenty of them--ensue.

Perry is serviceably harried as the beleaguered Everyman whom, as nice as everyone around him agrees that he is the person, just about everyone, wants to kill. Willis, much as he did in The Sixth Sense, gets better mileage out of not trying so hard; his irksome smirk is almost held in check. Amanda Peet has some funny scenes as a hit-man groupie—it's when her true role in the proceedings is revealed that the film finally kicks into comic gear. Michael Clarke Duncan is fine as yet another hit man to cross Perry's path; however, Arquette seems to be in a contest with Kevin Pollak (playing a mob boss) to see who can uncork both the most ludicrous accent and the most obvious performance. That kind of unevenness ensures that the pleasures that do exist within The Whole Nine Yards remain fairly minor. --David Kronke, --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funncy Farce 20 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great film. A laugh a minute that really fits the actors roles well. Bruce Willis, the stero-typical hard man, plays the hard but surprisingly friendly new neighbour to Matthew Perry of Friends fame.
Matthew plays the one role he knows well, slightly witless, funny american. Although his performance is very much like that of Three to Tango, you should find this very paletable.
My biggest complaint about this film is Matthew's screen wife's terrible French accent, but considering how painful your sides will be after laughing for an hour thirty you can put up with it.
A worthwell buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFULLY FUNNY FILM... 1 Dec 2002
Format:VHS Tape
When this movie first came out, I passed on it, mistakenly believing it to be a football film. Was I ever wrong! It is a terrific black comedy, with wonderful performances by Matthew Perry, the ever cool Bruce Willis, Michael Clarke Duncan, and a break out performance by Amanda Peet. Quite frankly, the movie is just plain hilarious, and a little gem of a film which one could happily see again and again, as I already have, and laugh each and every time.
Matthew Perry is wonderful as the hapless everyman, a dentist who finds himself living in Canada with his witchy and shrewish French-Canadian wife, played by Rosanna Arquette with a French accent that is over the top and ao bad as to be laughable. Decidedly no longer in love with her husband, she wants to have her husband bumped off for insurance money.
As luck would have it, a notorious Chicago based hit man, with a mob contract out on his own life, just happens to move in next door to the unhappily married duo. This hit man, cooly played to perfection by Bruce Willis, meets his neighbor, Matthew, who also happens to originate from Chicago. Bruce looks familiar to Matthew, who ultimately recognizes him for who he is. While initially unnerved by Bruce, they somehow hit it off.
Matthew, however, foolishly tells his wife that he believes the neighbor to be a hit man with a price on his head, and the games begin. She sends Matthew to Chicago to have him give up their neighbor, the hit man, for the contract money. Matthew goes, mainly to appease her, as he really has no intention of giving up his new found friend.
Meanwhile, no sooner does he leave, than she herself goes to the neighbor to give her husband up in hopes that he will get rid of her husband for her.

This movie starts off with Perry absolutely sick of his life, his wife and his job(hes a dentist by the way). His life is made even worse whe JimmyThe Tulip, a known seial killer, moves in next door. His life improves though when he starts to get freindly with jimmy. Then to put his life on downhill again his wife makes him go and rat on jimmy, to a rival gang, and get a big some of money for doing this. Perry also does not know that his wife is trying to get him whacked!!A Brilliant movie with lots of twists, and great performences from Perry and Willis. A must see comedy.

Noisy and meaningless, supposedly funny, but I didn't enjoy it. It is a movie genre that I simply do not enjoy, allbeit with many good actors.

1st part of a duology that sets the scene as well as giving you a great ride. One of Bruce Willis' best roles 'Yimmy the Tulip Tudeski' I have to say. Worth buying and watching and find Whole 10 Yards too. I pray for a 3rd :D

4.0 out of 5 stars In the heart of suburbia, a hit man with heart has just moved in
This movie is not a laugh a minute. But it is without a doubt a giggle a minute with a few fall down laughs. It is cute and funny and somehow makes hitmen lovable. Read more
