Four tales of crime adapted from Frank Miller’s popular comics, focusing around a muscular brute who’s looking for the person responsible for the death of his beloved Goldie, a man fed up with Sin City‘s corrupt law enforcement who takes the law into his own hands after a horrible mistake, a cop who risks his life to protect a girl from a deformed paedophile, and a hitman looking to make a little cash.
The Whole Nine Yards (2000)
Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry wreak havoc on suburban Montreal as two neighbours stalked by hired killers in a comedy about life, love and ammunition. Jimmy “The Tulip” Tudeski (Willis) comes to Montreal to hide from the Chicago mob. He befriends his hapless neighbour, Nicholas “Oz” Oseransky (Perry), a quiet dentist with a strikingly beautiful wife (Rosanna Arquette) and a bubbly assistant (Amanda Peet) and bullets start to fly. For Jimmy, dodging an assassin is child’s play, but Oz usually fights cavities not gangsters. To stay alive, Jimmy and Oz forge an alliance combining Jimmy’s ruthless cunning with Oz’s sharply honed dental skills.
The Whole Ten Yards (2004)
Bruce Willis and “Friends” star Matthew Perry return in the sequel to their comedy.
