Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Jonathan Lynn keeps a loose rein on the nuttiness but never lets it get out of bounds and maintains the film's comic buoyancy throughout."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"Some very funny moments, but not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Matthew Perry acaba revelando-se um protagonista carismático e divertido."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The film is funny in a crass way."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Perry makes the slapstick humor work with a limber body and good timing, but he can't do much with the stale jokes."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
"A subtle but unmistakable aura of jolliness sneaks from the screen during The Whole Nine Yards."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"There are a number of genuinely clever twists and ideas that it's unfortunate that someone decided to muck it up with cheap slapstick."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Features some of the best physical comedy in years, courtesy of Matthew Perry."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Nothing more than standard lowbrow fare featuring a little bathroom humor, lots of pratfalls, and an awfully silly army of hackneyed bumblers, plotters, wimps and Jezebels."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Uun ejemplo más de que en Hollywood siguen haciendo falta las buenas ideas y, sobretodo, quien las lleve a cabo"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
"Director Jonathan Lynn keeps the comedy rolling smoothly."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Comes as close as a movie can to being a successful comedy without making it."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Perry saves the day with his inspired fish-out-of-water silliness."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"The infrequent laughs are forced, and the movie feels as stale as a month-old focaccia."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"There's precious little that's funny about [Perry's] frantic stab at farce--and, since that's the primary commodity of The Whole Nine Yards, it makes a long haul."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
