Product Description

Golden Globe(r) winner* John Travolta leads an all-star cast in the hysterical comedy thatTime calls "smart, shrewdly crafted [and] hilarious!" Loan shark Chili Palmer (Travolta) is bored with the business. So when he arrives in LA to collect a debt from down-and-out filmmaker Harry Zimm (Gene Hackman), Chili talks tough...and then pitches Harry a script idea. Immediately, Chili is swept into the Hollywood scene: He schmoozes film star Martin Weir (Danny DeVito), romances B-movie queen Karen Flores (Rene Russo) and even gets reservations at the hottest restaurants intown. In fact, all would be smooth for this cool new producer, if it weren't for the drug smugglersand the angry mobster who won't leave him alone! *1996: Actor (Comedy)Get Shorty

Additional Features

There's a lot to like in the two-disc DVD edition of Get Shorty. Overall the 10 special features are pretty generous, going in-depth into the production with extensive interviews with the cast, producers, and director. Writer Elmore Leonard gets ample screen time to talk about his book the film was based on. An episode of From Page to Screen, a show originally broadcast on the Bravo Channel, delves even deeper into Leonard and his book. The featurette "Look at Me" offers over 25 minutes of interviews with Leonard, director Barry Sonnenfeld, and the cast. "Wiseguys and Dolls" takes a behind-the-scenes look at the movie, giving the viewer a good sense of the approach to the production. Film buffs will really appreciate the focus on director Sonnenfeld, which includes a moment right out of Filmmaking 101--a discussion on the relative virtues of using dolly cams versus steady cams. The rest of the features on the disc are interesting to view once, including a graveyard scene rightfully deleted from the final cut. --Dan Vancini
