The film is about an unhappily married, underpaid dentist (Matthew Perry) whose next door neighbor is no other than Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis), an infamous contract killer out on parole. During the course of the film, everyone wants to kill someone, and no one can be trusted. There are some interesting twists, which makes the film unpredictable.
The acting is great. The comic treat in this film is Matthew Perry; he's very funny and charismatic. Bruce Willis's acting, however, is a little restrained, but his powerful stage presence is more than enough; his portrayal of Tudeski is excellent. Amanda Peet is a scene-stealer in the film; her comic timing is precise. I also enjoyed Michael Clarke Duncan and Kevin Pollack in their supporting roles. The only blemish in the film is Roseanna Arquette -- what's with the phony French accent?
Great film. A must-see!
Bruce Willis, like in the Sixth Sense gives a great performance, without doing much. Mathew Perry is the best as the comic Dentist, and his reaction faces are very believable. Michael Clarke Duncan (Who started filming shortly after The Green Mile) gives another perfect performance as Frankie Figs, another hit man in the way. Amanda Peet has some great scene as a hit man wannabe. In fact there are no slackers in this cast. The film comes off great and I really enjoyed it. It was much better than I expected
The Whole Nine Yards is a very clever and entertaining film, with a great score. It's a real winner. I was happy to add it to my DVD collection. I recommend you see it.
Matthew Perry is wonderful as the hapless everyman, a dentist who finds himself living in Canada with his witchy French-Canadian wife who is, decidedly, not in love with him. His shrewish wife, played by Rosanna Arquette with a French accent which is over the top and laughable, 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, coolly played to perfection by Bruce Willis, meets his neighbor, Matthew, who also happens to be 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.Read more ›
