Storyline

Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by his former neighbor Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky (Matthew Perry), retired hit man Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) now spends his days compulsively cleaning his house and perfecting his culinary skills with his wife, Jill, a purported assassin who has yet to pull off a clean hit. Suddenly, an uninvited and unwelcome connection to their past unexpectedly shows up on Jimmy and Jill's doorstep: it's Oz, and he's begging them to help him rescue his wife from the Hungarian mob. To complicate matters even further, the men, who are out to get Oz, are led by Lazlo Gogolak (Kevin Pollak), a childhood rival of Jimmy's and another notorious hit man. Oz, Jimmy and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards--and then some--to manage the mounting Mafioso mayhem. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Budget? There was a budget?
4 June 2004 | by chickskickassSee all my reviews

I just got back from seeing this movie, and I;m still not sure how I feel about it. There were some parts that were pretty funny, but the few good gags didn't make this movie work. The rapport with the characters wasn't there like it was in the first movie, and you didn't really care for the characters. Even the emotional wringer that Amanda Peet's character went through fell flat, despite my everlasting love for Peet.

And what the heck was up with the boom mikes? In nearly every other scene, the mike would sneak into the shot! In one scene, there was a mike right next to Bruce Willis' head that stayed there, pretending to be a part of a palm tree or something, despite being fuzzy and gray. For a movie with such big names, you'd think there'd be somebody behind the camera making sure there weren't mess ups like this. I guess they had to cough up so much money for all of the actors to come back that that they couldn't afford a director that paid attention or a television screen during shooting that displayed what the camera was shooting so the director could pay attention. Or a good editor to notice there's a freaking mike in that shot, don't use it. The list goes on and on, and the sloppiness makes it hard to enjoy this movie as a polished product that's eager to entertain you.
