The Whole Ten Yards | 2004 | R | - 5.5.5

Sequel to "The Whole Nine Yards," with Matthew Perry reprising his role as a mild-mannered dentist who becomes an unlikely friend to a likable hitman played by Bruce Willis. The dentist is now married to the hitman's ex-wife (Natasha Henstridge), who's been kidnapped by the Hungarian mob, and the hitman, who's married to the dentist's former dental assistant (Amanda Peet), comes to the dentist's aid. Also with Kevin Pollak and Clara Bellar. Directed by Howard Deutch. [1:39]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman (husband and wife) kiss passionately, the man picks her up and carries her into the next room and we hear panting, rhythmic moaning and sounds of climaxing. A man and a woman (husband and wife) kiss several times in several scenes. Two men wake up in bed together (one man kisses the other on the head before realizing who he is), one man gets out of bed (we see his bare buttocks and both are bare-chested) and the other reacts when the man turns toward him (they were drunk, and it is not clear whether they have had sex; one man is worried that they have). A woman wearing bra and panties (revealing cleavage and bare abdomen) invites a man (not her husband) into her room, he looks at her, she caresses herself and moans while he watches her, she asks him to smell her perfume, she removes her bra (we see her bare back), she places his hand on her bare breast, they hug and are interrupted by her husband. A man asks a woman (not his wife) what she's wearing while they are talking on the phone. A man and a woman (husband and wife) talk about trying to become pregnant and the woman says "you might be shooting blanks." People discuss a man's erectile dysfunction in several scenes. A woman sits by a pool wearing a teddy that reveals cleavage and bare legs. A woman wears a top and bikini bottom (we see bare legs), and through most of the movie a woman wears a low-cut sweater that reveals cleavage. A man talks about the sexual relationship he and his ex-wife had (he's discussing it with her current husband). A woman threatens her husband with "cold showers." A man says "I saw my father naked in the shower."

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man shoots two men in a car trunk several times (we see them spattered with blood). A man shoots a woman. Three people are shot at by a sniper (a man in the trunk of a car is shot and we see him in a pool of blood later). A woman shoots a man in the foot (we see blood on his shoe and he yells. Two boys fight by punching each other in the stomach and face, and slamming each other into the hood of a car (we see them with bloody noses and bruised faces) and a man yells at them. A woman shoots a man (we see blood on his chest and he falls over onto the floor). A man is punched in the stomach and shoved onto a couch, he is punched in the stomach again and he is threatened, several men in the room begin shooting their guns, one man is hit in the head (we see bloody hole on his forehead), one man runs out of the house and the men chase him continuing to shoot as they enter the street. A woman holds a gun on a man, he slips on spilled spaghetti and falls through a window to his death. A man knocks on a man's head, grabs him by the shirt and shoves his head onto a table a few times (he's left unconscious) while the man's young son watches. A man throws a man into a wall (he falls onto a bed unconscious). A woman holds a knife to a man's throat, then another man grabs him and threatens him.

A man threatens to cut a woman's fingers off. A man drives over a chicken (we hear a thud and a crunch and see the limp chicken later). A man punches a woman in the face, two men punch each other in the face, and a man kicks a man. People are threatened with guns in many scenes. A car, with a dead man inside, is blown up and the blast sends two men standing near the car through the air and knocks others in a nearby room to the floor. A car, with two dead men in the trunk, is blown up. A man thrashes in a dentist's chair when a nitrous oxide mask is left on his face too long. A man charges toward a table, knocks it over and crashes onto the floor breaking many glasses. Two men are knocked unconscious by chloroform. A man hits a man in the face on several occasions. A man falls backward down a flight of stairs freeing himself from the chair to which he is tied. A man slams into a door with his face, and a man slams his head against a wall a few times. A man says to a woman: "I'll stick a knife in your face." A man says about his father, "I want to stick an ice pick in his eye." A man tells a man "they're gonna hack us up into little pieces," as men walk by them with a chainsaw, a large metal tub and a plastic bag. A man threatens a man on the phone, and a man threatens to kill a man several more times. A woman shoots out the tires of a car. A hitman talks about his favorite "hits," discusses a few of the details of the murders he has committed and has made a mobile of dolls resembling the murdered men. A woman says "I just want to shoot somebody." A woman slams on the brakes of her car and a man in the back seat slams his head into the front seat (we hear bones cracking when he re-adjusts himself), a woman closes a car trunk and knocks a man on the head. A man appears frightened and jumpy throughout the movie: a balloon pops and he jumps under a table, and he answers the door with a gun in his hand. A man kicks, pounds on a door and yells at the woman on the other side. A man is abusive to a waitress, and a man and a woman argue in many scenes. A man sits on a dead chicken.

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.
