I haven't seen "Pulp Fiction" yet but I think I'm going to have to. Everyone keeps talking about it so much and comparing "Get Shorty" to it.
I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I'm not particularly a John Travolta fan and I haven't read the book by Elmore Leonard, but Travolta seemed to fit the part of a loan collector for a mobster very well.
In the process of trying to collect on unpaid gambling debts from a B-grade movie producer, Travolta's character gets a taste of Hollywood and decides he not only likes it, he wants to be in the movie business too. And how he gets into the picture, so to speak, becomes the adventure that becomes the movie.
