The Whole Nine Yards

A nice dentist living in suburban Montreal has a new next door neighbour, a hit man hiding out from a dangerous Chicago crime family. Despite their differences, the two have one thing in common: someone's trying to kill them both. For the gangster, avoiding a couple of hired killers is child's play. But for the dentist, it's a whole new ball game.
To stay alive, they're going to have to stick together - combining gangster cunning and cold-blooded accuracy with dental tools.

Shaun Myburg (21): A really funny, clever comedy. My favourite Friends stars teams up with my favourite action star, so I was hoping not to be disappointed, and I wasn't. This kind of reminded me of the classic Bruce Willis comedy ''Blind Date'', Matthew Perry plays the clumsy nice guy this time and pulls off the slapstick with great effect. Added to the mix are Natasha Henstridge (mmmmm) and newcomer Amanda Peet. Also good performaces by Michael Clark Duncan, Kevin Pollak and Rosanna Arquette. This one is worth seeing especially since it only opened last week in the states, so we haven't been drowned by all the previews. GOOD FUN!!

Justin Paulsen (20): I Found This Movie, Funny, Interesting And It Kept Me Glued To The Screen The Whole Way Through ... Bruce Willis Is Still The Macho Man He Has Always Been...

Rob Fisher (43): Mathew Perry is hysterical! With both Bruce Willis and Mathew Perry in a movie it HAS to be good and I wasn't disappointed!

Belinda Burns (32): It was quite a pleasant surprise to find that the trailor did not give away the story line for once. The almost ''accidental'' slap stick comedy was good and the whole movie was most enjoyable.

Erin Otto (16): It was very funny, I laughed through the whole movie, I was also glad it had a happy ending.

Esre Duvenhage (22): I thought it was excellent! What a combination Bruce Willis & Mathew Perry makes. A Classic!!

Jacob Gossage (12): This movie was the best I've ever seen!!

Salem Duessi (17): I thought this movie was really good. It had some surprises in it that were not expected so it stayed very interesting throughout the movie. It was also very funny. Must see!
