Avoid this sequel, I was not impressed.

A very cool John Travolta is exceptionally entertaining in a black comedy sprinkled with fascinating but inept villains who are charmed or disarmed by Travolta. It is one of the few films around that can be seen more than once and still retains its ability to keep you interested.

More dud than cool
John Paul Makowski | Chicago, IL & the World! | 11/15/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I usu. write about music or movies that I really like...but I didn't like Be Cool. I like comedy, action, fun, even stereotypes, but Be Cool is just too much weak stuff, seen it before, not original, not gut-bustin comedy. Even the stereotype-characters are a dud; if it's been done before then change something! make it fun or interesting. Steve Tyler?...nah...his daughter maybe.
They could have salvaged the flick by having more of sexy Christine Millian as a super hoochie or bitchy vixen in patent leather, at least get a thrill with her.

Compared with say, Players Club, & Undercover Brother: both of those are also full of stereotypes & stuff we've seen before, but those two do it right, excellent movies full of action, comedy, soft & hard stuff, vixens."

"Streetwise mobster-turned-movie producer Chili Palmer is back, but this time Chili has abandoned the fickle movie industry and veered into the music business, tangling with Russian mobsters and gangsta rappers and taking a talented, feisty young singer named Linda Moon under his wing. From the recording studio to an Aerosmith concert to the MTV Music Awards, he manipulates events to watch them play out the Chili way, using his signature blend of wiseguy skills and negotiation tactics. It's a dangerous business, and everyone's looking for their next big hit. Be Cool is a fairly harmless and forgettable comedy."
