This sequel to the $55 million-plus box-office success is written by Mitchell Kapner ("Romeo Must Die") and directed by Howard Deutch ("Grumpier Old Men," "The Great Outdoors," TV's "Gleason"). Retired hitman Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski is spending his days compulsively cleaning his house and perfecting his culinary skills when he's pulled back into the mayhem by the return of Oz begging for Jimmy's help in rescuing his wife from the Hungarian mob. The returning all-star cast includes box-office champ Bruce Willis, Emmy-nominated Matthew Perry, Kevin Pollak ("Grumpier Old Men," "The Usual Suspects"), Natasha Henstridge ("Species I & II," "Ghosts of Mars") and Amanda Peet ("Something's Gotta Give," "Changing Lanes") in the continuing comedic saga of the mob hit man and the dentist next door.
