Is It Any Good?
There is a nice little comedy genre about mob hit men living in suburbia; this one doesn't quite live up to Steve Martin's neglected gem My Blue Heaven, but it has some very funny moments.
The Whole Nine Yards is a fast and funny comedy that checks morality and political correctness at the door. Perry spends most of his time falling down, when he isn't getting beat up. Amanda Peet is simply terrific as Oz's sympathetic receptionist, with an unexpected expertise in hired killers. And the resolution, following a tough choice between love or money, is very satisfying.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
