A fun romp. Uma Thurman looks very appealing even as she is terribly under utilized in this movie. I’m still swooning over her from her explosive performance in Kill Bill Volume One (not to be confused with the not so good Kill Bill Volume Two).
I think the primary appeal of this movie is that the character played by John Travolta – Chili Palmer – is just (cliche/pun warning) so cool. Nothing fazes him, he has a goal and whatever obstacles get in his way he resolutely engineers his way around or, if necessary, through them.
The movie is far more comedy than action. Best served as a rental with a cold beer.
