Watered-down sequel isn't meant for kids.

One of the cuddliest, cutest movies you'll ever see about mobsters and murderers.
March 7, 2005
A messy, overlong film, but it's impossible to take seriously and therefore more than a little entertaining.

You know a sequel isn't working when, ten minutes into the movie, a voice inside your head starts screaming, 'Please make it stop!'

The movie feels more like a cavalcade of personalities than anything resembling a story.

It's a step down, a big one, on both fronts and neither does the kind of job here that could be construed as anything remotely their best.

Be Cool lacks both a focus and an edge, making it an amorphous mess.

This bumbling exercise in redundant replication is as disagreeably lukewarm as a heavily trafficked municipal baby pool.

Chock-full of the kind of power moments that are extremely useful in assembling a trailer. But the filmmakers forgot something: a good story to hold the celebrity bric-a- brac and shtick together.

It can't decide if it's a comedy or a musical -- rocking ballads by Milian and a duet with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler are sweet interludes but ruinous to any sense of paced humor.
March 4, 2005
It's unchallenging but amusing enough.
March 4, 2005
Like being spritzed by a bottle of stale seltzer.
March 4, 2005
There's really no need to pay much attention to the plot.
March 4, 2005
It's instantly forgettable, but smooth fun most of the way.
March 4, 2005
Travolta's best film in years -- as well as a one-man summation (with occasional sidebars) of what it means to be an icon.
