Forced sequel to "Get Shorty" that lacks the smoothness and finesse of the original and seems to try both too much and too little at the same time. It is not nearly as fun now and the setup seems more interested in bringing in as many celeb cameo appearances that is possible. Worst mistake though is a dance sequence that try to make the lousiest Black Eyed Peas song hip when it is as soulless and dead as this film.
50/50 I felt bad because Vince Vaughn and The Rock both give the best performances of their careers and it is lost on a script that doesn't go anywhere and the spontaneously break into one actor whose character is scarcely established lip syncing REALLY badly, and whichever recording she used wasn't great. There are several of those scenes through the film which on repeat views I just want to put on something else.
