Synopsis:
Drug smuggling. Racketeering. Loan sharking. Welcome to Hollywood! Loan shark Chili Palmer (John Travolta) is bored with the business. So when he arrives in LA to collect a debt from down-and-out filmmaker Harry Zimm (Gene Hackman), Chili talks tough ... and then pitches Harry a script idea. Immediately, Chili is swept into the Hollywood scene: He schmoozes film star Martin Weir (Danny DeVito), romances B-movie queen Karen Flores (Rene Russo) and even gets reservations at the hottest restaurants in town. In fact, all would be smooth for this cool new producer, if it weren't for the drug smugglers and the angry mobster who won't leave him alone!

Funny knock-about mob Hollywood comedy - Get Shorty review by PV

Spoiler Alert
19/07/2018

This is a good fun watch - lots of tricksy postmodernism here too. Lots of jokes about the Hollywood film industry and art imitating life.

Great performances by Gene Hackman and John Travolta who plays a 'Shylock' - a mobster calling in loans. Of course, in real life he'd have been shot dead within a week. But this is essentially fantasy - a romantic vision of the mob and Hollywood.

Some lovely in-jokes here.
