Barry Sonnenfeld was and maybe wasn't the right choice to make Get Shorty.
He's a great visualist, and his films (Adams Family, Men in Black) are also
very funny, but it's hard to say whether or not another director might've
taken Elmore Leonard's sly comic novel more seriously or with less depth.
As it is, however, Get Shorty is a cool little treat that doesn't over-stay
its welcome, and provides its cast a plethora of witty dialog. John
Travolta brings on some sharp attitude, knowing the angles and wanting, as
his character Chili Palmer, to get into Hollywood and out of loan sharking.
Gene Hackman's funny as a fledgling producer with his first, true big hit in
his lap. And supporting parts from Delroy Lindo, Renne Russo, Danny De Vito
(as 'Hollywood' as you'll ever see him), and James Gandolfini, are all very
worthy. It's a worthwhile watch, with a dead-on score from John Lurie. But
I would reccomend Out of Sight or Jackie Brown to Leonard fans looking for a
great adaptation. It's a very good Hollywood picture (reflective of what
it's about), though it's not a masterpiece. A-
