THE WHOLE TEN YARDS

The hit-happy gang from The Whole Nine Yards is back, but unfortunately the cheesy slapstick that made the 2000 mob comedy a dirty pleasure isnít. Contract killers Jimmy the Tulip (Bruce Willis) and Jill (Amanda Peet) are now cozied away in a beachfront bungalow in Mexico. Heís turned in his guns for Martha Stewart home living; and as Jill informs us, heís also lost the killer instinct in the boudoir. Oz (Matthew Perry), meanwhile, has married Jimmyís ex, Cynthia (Natasha Henstridge), and built a prodigious dental practice in Los Angeles. Shit happens when Hungarian mobster Lazlo Gogolak, the father of Janni Gogolak, the heavy in Nine Yards (both roles played by Kevin Pollak, and the grating accent hasnít improved), gets released from jail. Cynthia gets abducted, Oz runs around like Jerry Lewis on barbiturates, Jimmy threatens to kill everyone, including his wife, and the two male leads wind up in bed together, naked. None of it is funny, and to make matters worse, writer George Gallo and director Howard Deutch have somehow managed to domesticate out of Jill the goofball sensuality that gave the original its quirky edge. (99 minutes)
