Since I saw “Be Cool“, which was a sequal, I wanted to see “Get Shorty“. Both movies can be seen separately as they are not connected by the story in any way. Only by the characters.

I liked this film, but not as much as the second part. Yes, it is one of those rare cases, when following parts are better than the original film. Not by a great margin though.
It was a good criminal action with good acting, lots of celebrities and a nice story twist. I think it could do better with a bit more humor and action. The dialogs were a strong part though.
