Remember Chili Palmer, the oh-so-cool operator played by John Travolta in Get Shorty ten years ago? You might recall that we last left him in Tinseltown calling the shots in the movie business.
In Be Cool, Chilis back and he has his sights set on another area of entertainment - the recording industry. When one of Chilis friends is killed, he pays a visit to the guys wife, Edie (Travoltas Pulp Fiction dancing partner, Uma Thurman) and, with his usual smooth negotiating skills, passes himself off as her new partner in her deceased hubbys record business.
In Linda Moon (Christina Milian), Chili has a promising new pop star, but he also has his hands full dealing with problems like her white manager (Vince Vaughn) who thinks hes black, a gay bodyguard who wants to be an actor (The Rock, amusingly cast against type), an eloquent gangsta music producer (Cedric the Entertainer) and Russian mobsters! Danny De Vito reprises his Get Shorty role as Hollywood star, Martin Weir.
