Be Cool - Movie Synopsis & Plot

John Travolta is back as Chili Palmer in "Be Cool," a sequel to the comedy smash "Get Shorty". This time, Chili becomes a different kind of "hit" man - he abandons the movie industry to bring his wiseguy skills and negotiation tactics to the music business. When a friend is offed while they're at lunch, Chili takes the opportunity to visit the guy's wife, Edie (Thurman), and pitch himself as her new business partner at an independent record label. With a promising young pop-star-in-training as his protégé (Milian), Chili has to juggle her faux-urban manager (Vaughn), his gay, wannabe-actor bodyguard (The Rock), Russian mobsters, and an eloquent gangsta music producer (Cedric) to save the label and land a hit - and keep from getting popped himself.

MOVIE REVIEW

This is my second attempt at writing a review for this movie. You know, it's hard writing a review for a movie you watched two weeks ago, especially when it's as plain as "Be Cool." A sequel to "Get Shorty," "Be Cool" provides the same kind of jokes only with less frequency, and once again we are forced to ask why did anyone think a sequel was necessary?
