Get Shorty (1995)

194) Get Shorty (1995)

A mobster travels to Hollywood to collect a debt and discovers that the movie business is much the same as his current job.

7/10 – I hadn’t even heard of Get Shorty until the other day. I was at a Pub Quiz and the question came up regarding the sequel. I was lost. It didn’t help that on our table it was described to me as ‘that film that had Steve Carrell in it‘ (thinking of Get Smart). It was such a slick movie, I expected the humour to be on the same level as Twinsbut Travolta elevated this film to level I didn’t expect. It’s a slick satire of mob movies and does a great job at poking fun at Hollywood. Overall, it’s a very off-beat and funny movie that I wish I had seen sooner. Need to watch Be Cool now…
