Critic's Pick

'Get Shorty'

November 10, 1996|Kenneth Turan

A 1995 light comedy set in an amoral setting, adapted from the Elmore Leonard's novel. At the center of it all, an island of calm with every hair carefully razor cut, is Chili Palmer, a hard guy with a soft heart. John Travolta (left) plays him as a Mafioso Cary Grant in a black leather coat, and the fit is perfect. Gene Hackman, Danny DeVito (right) and Rene Russo (center) co-star (Showtime Monday at 8 p.m.).
