Starring an unbelievably hip all-star cast, including John Travolta, Uma Thurman, André 3000, Steven Tyler and The Rock, and bursting with the hottest music in the biz, Be Cool is the wildly hilarious tale about a gangster turned music mogul and what it takes to be number one with a bullet. When Chili Palmer (Travolta) decides to try his hand in the music industry, he romances thesultry widow (Thurman) of a recently whacked music exec, poaches a hot young singer (Christina Milian) from a rival label and discovers that the record industry is packin' a whole lot more than a tune!
Cast & Crew
One of the cuddliest, cutest movies you'll ever see about mobsters and murderers.
It's unchallenging but amusing enough.
It's instantly forgettable, but smooth fun most of the way.
Travolta's best film in years -- as well as a one-man summation (with occasional sidebars) of what it means to be an icon.
