Get Shorty Reviews

September 24, 2005
Sonnenfeld keeps all of this under two hours by cutting the movie at a dazzling clip.
March 20, 2005 seems clear that Get Shorty will appeal mostly to those familiar with the source material - as it has to be more coherent and fleshed out than this.

I really never got into this. It's slow, some industry jokes are funny, but mostly really slow. Rene Russo looks great thoughh.

High expectations only led to huge disappointment.

For all its winking and nudging and brightly colored sense of delirium, the movie is also strangely flat.

I did enjoy the intermittent good parts and Travolta's performance is a delight, but the rest of the movie is a waste.

Way too much to absorb in 2 hours, and it results in a talky, sanitized, often boring, tragicomedy that begins to fade from memory as soon as you leave the theater.
