Be Cool - March 2005

I saw "Get Shorty" nine years ago and thought it was pretty good. I would have liked to have felt the same about "Be Cool." Dare to dream.

Even with another Elmore Leonard novel for a story and a dream cast, "Be Cool" goes nowhere fast. It is self-referential, annoyingly simplistic and tries too hard to be cool. If you have to see "Be Cool," wait for home video.
