Synopsis


Be Cool
Underworld hipster Chili Palmer is back in the entertainment business in this sequel to the 1995 hit Get Shorty, which like the first film is based on a novel by Elmore Leonard. Gangster-turned-movie producer Chili (once again played by John Travolta) has grown tired of the screen trade, especially after his latest project turned out to be a box-office flop. Chili is looking for new horizons and thinks he may have found his niche when his close friend Tommy Athens (James Woods), a fellow mobster who runs an independent record label, is murdered by Russian gangsters. Chili takes over Athens' record company, Nothing to Lose Records, and begins courting Tommy's girlfriend, Edie (Uma Thurman). Edie is an experienced hand in record production, and together she and Chili spot what would seem to be the ideal act for their label -- Linda Moon (Christina Milian), a beautiful young woman with a powerhouse voice. Linda is stuck, however, in a going-nowhere R&B trio managed by the monumentally sleazy Raji (Vince Vaughn). Chili isn't much concerned about Linda's contract with Raji, but Raji certainly is, and the manager soon takes out a contract on Chili with the same Russian hoods who killed Tommy. Soon Chili is facing all the action he can handle between the Russian gunmen, a music mogul named Nick Carr (Harvey Keitel) who wants Chili to stay out of the business, and Sin LaSalle (Cedric the Entertainer), a successful hip-hop producer who wants Chili to pay him the 300,000 dollars he is owed by Tommy. Be Cool also features appearances by The Rock as a gay Samoan bodyguard, Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000 from the hip-hop duo Outkast) as a rapper who isn't very good with a gun, and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler as himself. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Good but Disappointing

    This movie has large cast of great actors and cameos of stars and interesting characters. But that maybe the problem, they wanted everyone in the movie to have time on the screen, which make of overly long movie. There are too many characters for the simple story that is here. If you saw Get Shorty you’re seen much of the same things but here not does as well. They're no twists in the plot making it by the numbers with no surprises. This movie is good but just average and maybe slightly better. Just the typical sequel not at good as first movie.If you don’t like the cast or Get Shorty this won’t move you to change any minds.

    This Hilarious Sequel to Get Shorty Stars John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Steven Tyler, The Rock, Cedric The Entertainer and Christina Milian. It is incredible. It is amazing how cool Travolta stays even threw the most dangerous situations. I don't want to give it all away, but you will love the first 15 minutes. This Movie shows Chili Palmer (Tavolta) how he wants get out of the movie business and into the music business. But his Past seams to follow him.

    there were parts in the movie that were very funny but you would assume with an allstar cast it would have been a lot better.
