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.

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

Bruce Willis leads an excellent cast in this funny US comedy about a hapless, long wife suffering Dentist who stumbles into the World of gangsters & hit-men. There's a great treat in the film for us guys ...... but say no more! Worth buying it just for that!
