I've got to say that Get Shorty was a completely enjoyable and awesome movie going experience. Having said that, Be Cool was a great experience as well, only on a completely different track. Where Shorty was sleek, low-keyed, and hip, Cool was over-the-top hilarious. A definitive "popcorn" movie. It wasn't meant to send a moral message or to be preachy. It was a movie about having fun, looking good, and being able to poke fun of yourself and society in general. Anyone expecting this to be a "Get Shory 2", doesn't need to see it as they will only be <more>
disappointed. If you're looking for a fun movie going experience then this is a movie that delivers. It's not deep, just fun.
I come to this website to check out a couple things and much to my dismay, "Be Cool" only has a rating of 6.4! Shame, shame, shame... How many times can it be said that a sequel does the original motion picture justice? Or hold a candle to the first? Not too often. By my numbers, correct me if i'm wrong, but the only sequels in my book that has been unanimously heralded as superior to its first counterpart is Terminator II and Spider Man II Unanimously ! BE COOL is the heir apparent to GET SHORTY. Now, I am a fan of GET SHORTY and when they began to advertise for BE COOL, I was <more>
a bit on the skeptical side, but thrilled as well. I had to see it, so on its debut, that is exactly what I did. I was NOT disappointed one bit. Sure Chilly can hit his "look at me" phrase exactly how he did in the first, but his smoothness has not left the building folks. He has a huge supporting cast that actually SUPPORT.The Rock is hilarious, which surprised me b/c I am not a Rocky Maivia fan at all never seen one of his movies - I am now a "disciple of the eyebrow bandit". The man who played Roger, the Rock's boss who thought he was black, was as well hilarious - EVERY scene w/him is beautiful! Cedric, Andre 3000, again, EVERY scene were FUNNY FUNNY! Uma is always amazing. And who can deny her and Travolta didn't have chemistry. Any fans of Pulp Fiction will be happy to know they have another DANCE SCENE! I felt like it was part two of their first encounter.The entire film was cool, intriguing, COMEDY and reminiscent of the first. All who have not yet watched, you will NOT be disappointed, I guarantee by the heavens and earth! Everybody, check this HIT out while it is still in movies!
A very good movie especially in a time like this (by alok_khanna)
Well with loads of B-Movies in the name of comedy coming out, Be Cool does well actually extremely well. The Story stays intact and brings in a lot of variations. It Could have been even more funnier but somehow that would and could have effected the story. The two people who stole the show are The Rock and Vince Vaughn. A good team. Whenever their scene is over you just cant wait for them to get back. A very funny, comedy and good family film which was needed for Hollywood after the Huge hit HITCH.A good sequel to the Hit movie Get Shorty. And the fact that they show Chili Palmer subsiding <more>
that means a lot in the movie. So a good follow up. A movie where you don't have to watch Get Shorty to get the whole grip cause its shorty summed up unlike some other sequels.Didn't see no huge flaws so i got to say a very well brought up movie. Good job
I just saw the movie last night with some friends and we all found the movie incredibly good. Not only was it hilarious, but it was also well thought out. The references to other movies helped make the movie be more entertaining. It was also nice to see Uma Thurman in a role that wasn't so 'rough'. Christina Milian did a wonderful job and has a fantastic voice. The relationship between Cedric the Entertainer and Andre 3000 added to the hilarity of the movie. But, out of all the wonderful people in the movie, the Rock had to be the best. This movie showed just how good of an actor <more>
he is. I think this movie is fantastic and people should give it a chance.
Please disregard comments of this movie being awful and go see it today! This movie was simply hilarious, definitely the best I have seen in a long time. It had a great story and a lot of cameo appearances. So there was a lot of advertising, but it didn't take away from the movie. I highly recommend Be Cool. The acting was the best, as most everyone can see from the exceptional cast. But the cast isn't the only reason to see this movie. It had a very funny plot that almost everyone can enjoy and relate to. Cedric the Entertainer's character was by far the best, he was hilarious! <more>
If you like comedy, music, violence, thrill, romance...anything at all, you will like this movie. This will definitely be the movie of the year.
Why don't all of you complainners..... (by spiderman4270)
Get over your selves. Sure the Steven Tyler cameo was lame. There were also some other moments that I would have cut before the release but please people, STOP! Tell me The Rock wasn't funny. Tell me Vince Vaughn wasn't funny. Tell me Cedric the Entertainer wasn't funy. Andre 3000 was great with what he had. That movie wasn't Funny?! It was a very funny entertaining movie which by today's standards was great. Get Shorty I agree was better, But, this wasn't Get Shorty! Get over yourselves and watch the movie for what it was. A comedy designed to make you laugh. I <more>
din't agree with some of the direction and the cameo of tyler and that lame concert. That doesn't mean the movie sucked. If you want to laugh and see a bit of action with young and veteran stars this is a good movie to see. especially with all of the other crap out there.
I went to a screening of Be Cool today and I have to say it was very entertaining. I haven't seen Get Shorty so I cant really compare the movie to anything but Vince Vaughn and The Rock were laugh out loud funny and Andre 3000 was very good in his first major role. Christina Milian was not really used to her potential as an actress but displayed her ability to sing very well. The other performances from the actors in the movie you would probably expect without any surprise. I still cant get over how funny The Rock was and am extremely pleased thats hes done so well for himself and hope he <more>
does more comedies. Overall, its a good movie that should not disappoint too many people.
I saw a prescreening of the movie today, and it did not let me down. At first the comedy was slow, but it picked up quickly. If you don't expect "loud" humor, then you will be pleased. Overall a very entertaining movie that has many modern references to it. There were parts where it was comedic gold with the Rock and Vince Vaughn, and a few other good moments. One of those movies with many many cameos, and they seemed to work very well. The plot is decent, but what really sets it apart is its not so subtle poking fun of itself. If you liked Get Shorty, you'll probably like <more>
this one. I don't know how funny this movie will be in a couple of years, it is a comedy of the moment, albeit an extremely humorous one.
I haven't seen Get Shorty. So I was totally blank on this sequel. But this movie makes me curious to how Get Shorty was because I really liked Be Cool. Very good movie! We see John Travolta as Chili Palmer trying to make a star out of Christina Milian, but this doesn't go without trouble. The fantastic one-liners, the hilarious Vince Vaughn who thinks he is black, the beautiful butt of Uma Thurman, The Rock as a homosexual, Russian mob, a hip hop band who are also a bunch of ghetto gangsters, the Pulp Fiction Dance between Thurman and Travolta over again and everybody wants something <more>
from Chili Palmer , the only one who stays calm in the world of music business. Be cool. 8 out of 10 stars.
