Matthew Perry's best

- Film: The Whole Nine Yards (2000)

- Director: Jonathan Lynn

- IMDb user rating: 6.7

- Metascore: 47

- Runtime: 98 minutes

In “The Whole Nine Yards,” Perry plays a dentist named Oz who, upon realizing that his new neighbor (Bruce Willis) is a former contract killer for the mob now living under witness protection, decides to turn him in in exchange for money. In 2004, Perry told an interviewer that he did the movie in an effort to get audiences to see him as a character other than Chandler Bing, saying “it’s our job…to change it up a little bit while still being funny and still being entertaining.” Certainly, the slapstick and screwball humor is quite different from what fans came to expect from him on the sitcom, which could help to explain the movie’s success.
