DRUG SMUGGLING. RACKETEERING. LOAN SHARKING. WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!
Chili Palmer (TRAVOLTA - who won a Golden Globe for his role) is a loan shark tired of his life in the mob. When he heads for Hollywood to collect a massive gambling debt from a small time movie mogul he’s propelled into life as a film producer.
But will working with struggling, down-on-his-luck director Harry Zimm (GENE HACKMAN) and pintsized star Martin Weir (DEVITO) take him to the top of the box office chart? And can he possibly maintain a meaningful relationship with B-Movie queen Karen Flores (RENE RUSSO) whilst fending of the array of angry mobsters and disgruntled drug dealers who refuse to leave him alone?
Super-slick, critically lauded, outrageously funny and perfectly directed by former Coen brothers acolyte BARRY SONNENFELD (White Noise, Men In Black, The Addams Family) this 10th Anniversary disc – released in time for the cinematic release of the hotly anticipated sequel BE COOL – promises to be one of the hottest DVDs of the year.
