She seems to be playacting rather than truly exploring the subtle depths of her character.
Roland E. Zwick
It's a pretty short movie, which surprised me, but it is just the right length where you wouldn't get bored with pointless scenes and are able to watch it again.
Bridget
This movie was actually surprisingly funny with a good cast including Matthew Perry, Bruce Willis, Michael Clarke Duncan and Amanda Peet.

The Whole Nine Yards is one of the funniest films I have recently seen, and I can't wait for the video release.
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!

The Whole Nine Yards is about an unhappy Dentist, Dr. Nicholas Oseransky (Mathew Perry), whose married to a horrid wife, Sophie (Rosanna Arquette), whose new neighbor, Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis), is a hit man, who just got out of prison. What Nick doesn't know is that almost everyone wants someone dead, including him.
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.

Ever get the feeling that someone wants to kill you? If you have, you're sharing your paranoia (or maybe not, he he he), with dentist Nick Oseransky (played by the bumbling and adorably clumsy Matthew Perry). He has an awful wife (played by Roseanna Arquette) who chain smokes and plans absurd ways to make money. Suddenly, who moves in next door then Timmy 'the Tulip' Tedeski (played by the anyman actor Bruce Willis). Timmy used to be a contract killer for a Hungarian crime mob and this, as you can imagine, makes Nick a little nervous. But there's more, a lot more! I don't want to give any more away, I'll just say that there are great performances by Amanda Peet as a wanna-be contract killer, Micheal Clark Duncan as Freddie Friggs, one scary big guy, and Kevin Pollack as Vinny, another one of the guys invovled with getting 'the whole nine yards'. The thing that makes this movie great is great performances. I've never seen Matthew Perry better then here(except maybe on 'Friends, but that's another story)and as one of Amanda Peet's first movie roles, I thought she was pretty funny too. But still I say again that the stand-out was Matthew Perry. He's really a guy to watch. He reminded me a little of Kramer from 'Seinfeld'. Rent this movie and try it out. Keep in mind, it's not 'Godfather' or 'Goodfellas'. But it's definately a fun movie!

"The Whole Nine Yards" is pure comedy. It's such a crazed, in your face story that you can't help but laugh out loud every time you watch it. I think the funniest thing about this movie has gotta be Rosanna Arquette's ludicrous accent. It was as bad as her acting. Bruce Willis was adorable as Jimmy "The Tulip." He's a hitman who just wants a little happiness but gets mixed up with his neighbor. And I don't think I have ever seen Bruce look hotter than when he did when he wore that wife beater with silver crucifix. Matthew Perry (as Oz) was the perfect vinegar to Bruce's oil because the man was the total reverse as Jimmy. If you don't take everything so seriously and don't mind a few random shootings mixed with lots of laughs than this movie is for you.

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 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.
