'The Whole Ten Yards'
(Bruce Willis, Matthew Perry, Natasha Henstridge, Amanda Peet / PG-13 / 90 mins / Warner Bros.)

Overview: In the original 'Whole Nine Yards', Matthew Perry played a mild-mannered suburban dentist stuck in a lousy marriage and living next door to Jimmy "The Tulip" Teduski, an in-hiding Mafioso played by Bruce Willis. There's been no word as to the sequel's plot, but expect the principal cast members to return.

Verdict: Oh dear! 'The Whole Ten Yards' fails to work on so many levels that it's hard to know where to begin! A paltry collection of lame one-liners, stock characters and tired sight gags. The extra yard in the title is, apparently, the amount of rope necessary for this unwanted franchise to hang itself. The strain needed to extend 'The Whole Ten Yards' a yard - and to feature length - is so evident it breaks new pic's comedy spirit, making it a dubious member of the Sequel Hall of Shame! The big surprise - the only gratifying surprise - of 'The Whole Ten Yards' is that we're glad to see almost everyone back!!
