Skip It

Director: F. Gary Gray
Actors: John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn, Harvey Keitel, Danny DeVito, Christina Milian, Andre Benjamin, Dwayne Johnson, Cedric the Entertainer, Steven Tyler, James Woods, Debi Mazar
Year: 2005

Synopsis: Movie producer (and former gangster) Chili Palmer looks to make a move into the music business by signing a new hot singer.

Despite the fact that it's the sequel to 1995's blockbuster "Get Shorty" with an all-star cast to boot, "Be Cool" is a real stinker. The presence of John Travolta and Uma Thurman (trying desperately to relive their "Pulp Fiction" glory) can't save this turkey (gobble, gobble). The supporting cast is bad (mostly Christina Milian, The Rock, and Andre 3000), the ads are boring (a poster of Andre entitled "Be Bad", Milian with "Be Famous", The Rock with "Be Yourself" and of course Travolta with "Be Cool". CORNY!!), and more importantly, the story sucks. Take a pass on this and netflix "Get Shorty" instead.
