    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    Lacks the clever twists and turns that made the original such fun. The sequel has exactly one twist, and it's not very clever. show more

    Destined to be on DVD by the time 2004 reaches the 50-yard line, Ten is more stale than it is ungodly. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Where the first pic breezed along with gags and gunplay, this forced follow-up is artificial to the hilt - fueled on a kind of trying-too-hard hilarity that makes even good actors look bad. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The funny thing about this unfunny movie is that the cast is brimming with actors who are usually quite engaging. The Whole Ten Yards must be very potent chloroform, indeed, to make Willis, Perry, Peet and Pollak such zombies. show more

    Things spin swiftly out of control with uneven acting and misfired physical gags. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A big, empty picture full of star turns, artificial energy and jokes that don't quite work, even if stars Willis and Perry do their best to slam them across. show more

    The obvious problem with The Whole Ten Yards is that it begins with the wrong kidnapping. Instead of taking Oz's wife, the criminals should have grabbed the authors of the original movie. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A fog of gloom lowers over The Whole Ten Yards, as actors who know they're in a turkey try their best to prevail. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Strenuously unfunny sequel. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Not as desperate, unfunny, and nonsensical as its title. It's worse. Worse than you can imagine. Unless, of course, you've imagined 90-something minutes of bloopers and outtakes that congeal into a story -- much the way a scab is formed. show more
