The Whole Ten Yards

Theatrical Release: April 9, 2004
The Whole Ten Yards


This comedy is a continuation of The Whole Nine Yards, in which a mild-mannered dentist, Nicholas “Oz” Oseransky (Matthew Perry), moved next door to hit man Jimmy “The Tulip” Tudeski (Bruce Willis). Nicholas is now married to Jimmy’s ex-wife, Cynthia (Natasha Henstridge), and Jimmy is married to Nicholas’s former dental assistant, Jill St. Claire (Amanda Peet). When Hungarian mob boss Laxlo Gogolak (Kevin Pollak) is released from prison, he is looking to avenge the death of his son. Although his son was killed by Jimmy “The Tulip,” Laxlo also blames Nicholas and kidnaps his wife. When Nicholas seeks the help of Jimmy and Jill, who are now living a domestic life in Mexico away from crime, he inadvertently leads the gang directly to them. Though Jimmy is reluctant to get involved, he has little choice now that his secret hideaway has been exposed and shot full of bullet holes.

Dove Review

In this occasionally funny movie of frequent slapstick humor, a gangster boss hits his dimwitted goon in the face whenever he questions him. Violence is used many times for comedic effect. There are several instances of sexual content: a man’s hand is on a woman’s bare breast, a couple is heard moaning after entering a room for the purpose of sex, and two men are in bed together unclothed with sexual contact implied. There is also sexually suggestive dialog, and bad language is frequent. Due to these elements and the overall lack of morality or redeeming values, Dove cannot award the Dove Seal to The Whole Ten Yards.
