The Whole Nine Yards | 2000 | R | - 7.6.5

Matthew Perry stars as a dentist whose life takes a turn for the worst when a mobster hit-man (Bruce Willis) moves in next door. Also with Rosanna Arquette, Michael Duncan, Natasha Henstridge, Amanda Peet and Kevin Pollak. [1:41]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots of sexual innuendo and lots of passionate kissing. We see a woman straddling a man during intercourse with movement and moaning (she's wearing a bra) and a couple in bed together (they're covered by a sheet but bare from the shoulders up). We hear a woman unzip a man's pants and see her put her head in his lap; later, we see her wipe off her mouth. A woman taps a man's clothed genitals, a man grabs his clothed genitals and a woman touches a man's bare chest while licking her lips. We see three extended shots of a woman's bare breasts and a brief side shot of a naked woman (only her breasts are visible though). Lots of cleavage; in one scene, we see the cleavage of a nude but sheet-covered woman sitting up in bed.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - In two different scenes, a person is shot in the chest (one is shot repeatedly, then falls into water and drowns); also, two other people are shot and killed (we see bullet marks on their backs with a little blood). A man punches another in the gut repeatedly. A man pulls a tooth out of a corpse's mouth; we see a close-up of the bloody extracted tooth. We see a corpse on a surgery table and a close-up of a corpse getting zipped into a body bag. We see a woman with cuts and nicks all over her body and face. Two bodies are put into a car, doused with gasoline and torched; the car blows up. A man vomits and a man catches a fly, seems to swallow it and then spits it back out. Threatening with guns.

LANGUAGE 5 - 2 F-words, some anatomical and scatological references, several mild obscenities and many insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
