I love movies about the movie business. I love a good crime film. And GET SHORTY combines the two and adds some flair, to boot. Any fan of Elmore Leonard adaptations will love this cool and suave Barry Sonnenfeld flick from the nineties. It's just as smooth as JACKIE BROWN and OUT OF SIGHT, with its usual chit-chat style about whatever the hell the characters like. I love the idea of Chili Palmer and adored watching everything unfold around him. I was taken by the idea of an unseasonably cool spell in Miami that sets everything into motion. And I really enjoyed seeing the late great James Gandolfini in an early role that showed how bright his star was going to shine before the biz had even given him a chance to twinkle. Everything is a delight here. I loved GET SHORTY and, if you're anything like me, you will, too.

I enjoyed the book and the movie does justice to it. I was less impressed with Elmore Leonard's sequel "Be Cool" but perhaps it's film adaptation, which I haven't seen, was able to improve it.
