Paging Dr. Tarantino STAT! This turgid sequel to "Get Shorty" proves that Travolta is in need of another new-career-ectomy. Jettisoning anything even mildly cool about the witty original, director Gray instead focuses on bombast and pointless cameos in the continuing adventures of Hollywood shylock Chili Palmer (Travolta). This time, Chili tries to break into the music business with the help of a widowed record producer (Thurman) and a young ingenue (Milian). Standing in their way are Russian mobsters, gangsta rap kingpins, and Vince Vaughn doing the tired white-guy-who-thinks-he's-black routine. Even The Rock as a flamboyantly gay bodyguard can't inject any life into such a flat, unfunny mess.

Be Cool
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

The movie Be Cool, in my opinion, was super funny. The movie has a lot of well known actors in it as well. John Travolta, Vince Vaughn, Uma Therman, Cedric the Entertainer, Christina Milian, The Rock, Danny DeVito, and James Woods are some of the actors you'll see in this movie Be Cool. This movie was pretty good. It made me laugh. I though the group of actors worked well together and made the movie funny. If you haven't seen it, you should sometime. It's hilarious. You'll be laughing all the way through.
