WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

The hardman-turned-movie-mogul we met in Get Shorty, Chili Palmer (Travolta), is bored of the film business. While music producer Tommy (James Woods) is pitching him a film idea, he’s gunned down by Russian gangsters twitch auf samsung tv downloaden.
Chili sees this as his way into the music business, hooking up with Tommy’s widow Edie (Thurman). Together, they poach an up-and-coming singer from her eccentric manager Raji (Vaughn) and his gay bodyguard Elliot (The Rock) pflanzen vs zombies kostenlosen. Unsurprisingly, this doesn’t go down well with Raji’s boss Nick (Keitel).
Meanwhile, rapper Sin (Cedric) calls in a debt Tommy owed him and the Russians have unfinished business too e-mail outlook express download for free.
Everyone seems to be trying to take everyone else’s money – or their lives – in what’s less of a showbiz satire than a farce 3dmark fire strike benchmarks.

WHAT’S IT LIKE?

The plot is deliberately so complicated, that rather than even think about who’s after what from whom, we just have to sit back and let the comedy wash over us icloud bilder auf einmal herunterladen.
But worse than the overly complex criss-crossing of the vendettas, the story lacks any coherence. The film-makers seem to have less of an understanding of the music business than Chili Palmer — which is odd, considering at least three professional singers are among their number php.
Cedric the Entertainer making pancakes for his daughter before popping outside to beat someone half to death is one of the few comic moments that actually works — most of the attempts at humour are corny, childish and fall flat — or at least far short of the smooth wit of Get Shorty rap beats free download kostenlos.
The film is built around caricature, rather than believable characters, with most of them proving to lack originality or worse, proving to be downright irritating coole spiele zum downloaden kostenlos.
Travolta is pleasing enough to watch, although he’s a pale imitation of his previous incarnation of the role, and his reunion with Pulp Fiction co-star Thurman has none of their previous sizzling chemistry, even on their return to the dance-floor herunterladen.
It’s a disappointing waste of a hugely talented cast, appealing only to the post-pub audience. It’s not big, it’s not clever and the only thing cool about it is the response it should get from the public to movies.
