The Whole Nine Yards

New York Daily News
It provides the first genuine laughs I've had at the movies in this young year.
A funny, frenetic and surprising comedy.
F. X. Feeney
Well-tuned wisecracks and clever plot twists.
You're entitled to ask for more than that in a comedy, but these days you're often obliged to settle for a lot less.
The New York Times
Underwhelming, amusing only in fits and starts.
A pedestrian movie with a predictable romance at its heart.
Wacky and heartless, bloody and silly -- and it ends in a flourish of grotesque sentimentality.
A comedy without much zing but with an occasional zing-er that enables the film to pick up . . . well, if not nine yards, maybe an inch or two on the gridiron.
Bruce Willis's marvelous performance as a contract killer only makes everything else about this comedy seem more pathetic.
Stupid, empty and -- worst of all -- fantastically boring.
