Synopsis

Golden Globe® winner John Travolta* leads an all-star cast in the hysterical comedy that insists it doesn’t take much to make it in the movies...just a background with the Mob. Loan shark Chili Palmer (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!

*Actor in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical), Get Shorty, 1996

Reviews

David Ansen Newsweek | May 07, 2008

Hollywood has been in love with mobsters since the beginning of movies. But the other side of the equation has seldom been considered. That is, until now.

Variety Staff Variety | May 07, 2008

A drolly offbeat look at Hollywood mores dedicated to the proposition that the best preparation for becoming a film producer is a stint in the criminal underworld.

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | May 07, 2008

An entertaining comedy-thriller adapted by Scott Frank from the Elmore Leonard best-seller and directed with bounce (if not much nuance) by Barry Sonnenfeld.

Janet Maslin New York Times | May 20, 2003

It's part of the joke here that Chili is a die-hard cineaste and loves reminiscing about smart, stylish tough-guy films he has enjoyed. Get Shorty belongs on that list.

Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle | June 18, 2002

It's Travolta -- smooth, commanding, handsome as ever, a cool, rhythmic bop in his walk -- who owns the film.

Peter Travers Rolling Stone | May 12, 2001

The result is one of the best movies of the year and by far the most entertaining.
