Overview
Drug smuggling. Racketeering. Loan sharking. Welcome to Hollywood! Golden Globe® winner John Travolta* leads an all-star cast in the hysterical comedy that insists it doesn't take much to make it in the movies...just a background with the Mob.

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 through...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 in town. In fact, all would be smooth for this coole new producer, if it weren't for the drug smugglers and the angry mobster who won't leave him alone!

*Actor in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical), Get Shorty, 1996.
