In 'Get Shorty' (1995), film-mad mobster Chili Palmer (John Travolta) goes AWOL from his intended assignment to track down B-Movie producer Harry Zimm (Gene Hackman), who has racked up gambling debts all over Las Vegas. Dazzled by the Hollywood lights, Palmer forgets his debt-collecting duties, deciding instead to pitch in with Zimm to produce a new vehicle for movie star Martin Weir (Danny DeVito). Ties to the criminal underworld are not so easily severed, however, and the co-producers find themselves harassed by Palmer's Miami boss Ray 'Bones' and the equally formidable gangster Bo Catlett.

In 'Be Cool' (2005), John Travolta returns as Chili Palmer in the long awaited follow-up to the blockbuster hit 'Get Shorty'. Gangster-turned-movie producer Chili (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.

This one is off a shelf (as part of an MGM promotion), not at a clearance stand. I don't post those.

Worth it for Get Shorty which is one of my favourites and was the film that got me reading Elmore Leonard's books which I recommend to anyone who likes straight talking dialogue, realistic detail and intelligent plots :thumbsup: Something like 'Freaky Deaky' would be a good book to start with ;-)

Get shorty was so boring i can remember switching it off before halfway, i didn't even bother to see be cool cold for me
