Be Cool

Synopsis: 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.

May I escort you to your vehicle?

But of course.



There you go, sir.

What's that?

I asked for a Cadillac.

The Insight is the Cadillac

of gas-electric hybrid cars.

Not only is it fuel-efficient,

it's great for the environment.

- I got it.

- Thanks.

- Hey, Martin.

- Chili!

- How are you doin'?

- How are you doin', Chil?

- Good to see you, Martin.

- Good to see you.

- Good to see you.

- Good to see you.

You know why Gordon?

What's up, Chili Palmer?

He did the soundtrack for Get Lost.

What's up, man?


Hes taking me around.

I'm doing a little research.

For my next part.

I'm gonna play Johnny.

The Man In Black.

Hello. I'm Johnny Cash.

- Oh, Johnny Cash.

- Yeah!

- But he's like six-feet-something.

- That's okay.

You don't... You know, low angles.

You know, the movies?

Hey, Chili, is that your car?

Yeah, it's an Insight.

It's the Cadillac of hybrids.

It's a little tight for a big guy like you.

Small price to pay

for the environment.

Fifty-seven miles to the gallon.

But what about speed?

No, Martin.

If you're important, people will wait.

Just one shot, Marty.

Marty, one smile for me, come on.


You've got the best of my love

Demonstrated love and affection

That you give so openly, yeah

The way I feel about you, babe,

I can't explain it

Want the whole wide world

to see that

Oh, but in my heart

You're all I need

You for me and me for you

It's growing every day

You've got the best of me, yeah

You've got the best of my love

You got me, yeah

Givin' you the best of my love

You've got the best of my love

Givin' you the best of my love

You've got the best of my love

That's true.

You know what I'm sayin'?

That's what it's about.

You have to let it go halfway.

You can't be always tryin' so damn hard.
