This movie was an embarrassment. Ulma Thurman looked like she had some
kind of disease and John Travolta looked like he was walking in his
sleep. I was expecting this to be a so-so sequel to Get Shorty not a
half-baked remake of the exact same movie (except that some of the
character's have different names and clothes)
I would not recommend this to movie to my worst enemy. I feel like I
was ripped off and Hollywood has once again tricked me into seeing
another horrible sequel ( I also suffered through Alien Vs. Predator).
The best thing that I can say about this movie is that it has my vote
for the worst movie of 2005!.

EVERYONE SHOULD SEE THIS ONE.
got to see it first .I been told it super funny????I see...
What a mess.
Sometimes when I hear an A-list cast will be bunched up together for 2
hours in a movie I hope, and pray that it is good, not for the sake of
my 10 bucks or 2 hours, but for the sake of these actors' careers. In
the case of "Be Cool", everything went to waste.
In the beginning of the film John Travolta (aka Chili Palmer) and a
music executive played by James Woods are driving in a car talking
about movie sequels, and how most aren't good. If you look passed the
fact that this scene was shot the same way Quentin Tarrantino filmed
his car scene in "Pulp Fiction", and listen to the dialogue you can't
help but ponder whether this is 1) a disclaimer to the audience that
this movie is going to suck, or 2) an attempt to get the audience
laughing at the sheer humor of 2 people talking about sequels in a
sequel. Oh the irony! (In case you were wondering, choice 1 is
correct.) The cool and slick Chili Palmer from the first and good film
"Get Shorty" is revived to play a mobster gone music business pro. He
steals a young hot singer (Christina Milian) from her ghetto pimped out
Jewish manager (Vince Vaughn), and turns her into a singing sensation.
Of course a movie about an ex-mobster can never be complete without new
mobsters causing havoc. This time around the mobsters of choice are
Russian, played by American actors who cannot act Russian if my entire
family hit them upside the head with their Russian bare hands.
As a Russian I wasn't so much offended by the way this film portrayed
Russians, but instead as a writer I was more offended by the horrible
dialogue. This film tried too hard to get the audience to laugh. It
turned potentially good lines into a redundancy. The Russian, black,
and gay jokes were the same ones only reworded a couple of hundred
times. After calling The Rock's character a f***** (he plays a gay
bodyguard to Vince Vaughn), and Cedric the Entertainerer's character a
n***** (he played a black rapper with an entourage who threaten those
who don't play his tracks with guns) I wanted to walk out of the movie
theater, because it was painful to sit through. If this was "Get
Shorty" none of this would've even needed to be in the film to build up
drama, or a really bad laugh.
What lacked in this film that didn't in "Get Shorty" was Chili's hot
spicey attitude. He's a completely different person in this sequel. For
one thing the old Chili would've had more dialogue. John Travolta
doesn't have more than 20 speaking lines in "Be Cool", because he is
out staged by the repetitive lines, and the hundred and two cameo
appearances by the most random celebrities. I won't ruin the shock by
revealing all of the cameos for those who actually plan to see this
movie (PLEASE DON'T!!!), but I will say that it will forever amaze me
that these people agreed to be in a film of such inanity.
What was even more stupid was the very lame dance sequence with
Travolta and Uma Thurman (she plays the widower of James Woods who
LUCKILY gets killed in the first 10 minutes of the movie). Tarrantino
never made Pulp Fiction for an idiot like the director of "Be Cool" to
mess around with. This dance number was boring, long, and just plain
throbbing. The Black Eyed Peas playing in the club with a total of 10
people didn't make the scene any memorable.
There were so many plot holes that I left the theater asking myself
WHY?! Everything about this film was a big question mark. I just didn't
understand the point to anything. I couldn't even explain to you why
the Russians were after everyone, or why this film was ever made,
because I'm baffled. All I took out of this movie was that everyone in
L.A. has a sidekick, and the only way this movie was probably funded
was through all of the advertisements by Diet Coke, Yahoo!, Honda
Insight Hybrid, T-Mobile, Trimspa (even the spokeswoman herself is in
the movie) and the Bad Screenwriters Guild. Plot holes, stupid
dialogue, too many random cameos, horrible acting (even by the pros),
and a not-so-entertaining attempt to mimic "Pulp Fiction" makes this
film the worst movie of 2005, and it's only the third month of the
