Get Shorty | 1995 | R | - 2.4.9

Shakedown artist Chili Palmer (John Travolta) gets into the movie business with a guy he was sent to shake down.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man and woman kiss passionately while she's supposedly rubbing his crotch; she's wearing a teddy. A man and woman kiss and later we see their bare shoulders in bed. Some sex talk.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man shoots at another man and we see blood on his forehead (later). A man is shot and falls off a balcony. Another man is shot (there's blood on his torso). People are threatened (sometimes with guns). A man bloodies a guy's nose and throughout the film his nose is bruised and misshapen. Several men are beaten up. A woman is slapped resulting in a bloody nose.

LANGUAGE 9 - 40+ F-words, many scatological references, many mild obscenities, some anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Professional hitmen, loan sharks, the movie industry.

MESSAGE - It's a jungle out there in the L.A. movie business; you never know who might make a good business partner.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
