Preceded by The Whole Nine Yards

The Whole Ten Yards (2004) is a sequel to the 2000 film The Whole Nine Yards. Like the original it stars Bruce Willis, Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet, and Natasha Henstridge.



Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by his former neighbor Nicholas "Oz" Ozeransky (Matthew Perry), retired hitman Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) now spends his days compulsively cleaning his house and perfecting his culinary skills with his wife, Jill (Amanda Peet), a purported assassin who has yet to pull off a "clean" hit (everyone she is hired to kill dies in bizarre accidents before she can kill them). Suddenly, an uninvited and unwelcome connection to their past unexpectedly shows up on Jimmy and Jill's doorstep: it's Oz, and he's begging them to help him rescue his wife Cynthia (Natasha Henstridge) from the Hungarian mob. To complicate matters even further, the men who are out to get Oz are led by Lazlo Gogolak (Kevin Pollak), a father figure of Jimmy's. Oz, Jimmy and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards—and then some—to manage the mounting Mafioso mayhem.





The Whole Ten Yards received generally negative reviews from Western critics. The review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported that 5% of critics gave the film positive reviews, based on 110 reviews.[2] Metacritic reported the film had an average score of 24 out of 100, based on 27 reviews.[3]

Box office

The Whole Ten Yards did not earn as much money as the first film, only bringing in $16,328,471 domestically and $9,827,310 internationally, for a worldwide total of $26,155,781, less than one-quarter the gross of the original. The film did not recoup its $30,000,000 budget.[1]
