Product Description

Amazon.ca

This belated sequel to Get Shorty finds loan shark-turned-movie producer Chili Palmer (John Travolta) burned out on Hollywood and ready to tackle a new showbiz challenge: music. Thus inspired, its soundtrack bounds between a wobbly mix of Me Decade neo-classics, sparing doses of contemporary hip-hop, and modern R&B. Anchored by '70s stalwarts Earth, Wind & Fire ("Fantasy"), an early Kool & the Gang funk-fest ("Hollywood Swinging"), and William DeVaughn's soulful "Be Thankful For What You Got," it goes on to embrace everything from the energetic 60's Brazilian pop of Elis Regina's "Roda" to the Black Eyed Peas' standout "Sexy" and a pair of heated R&B tracks from Christina Milian. But despite the hip-hop-tinged story line, the tracks by 777 and Kurupt shortchange the genre a bit, while John Powell's jazz-funky suite of underscore cues effectively channels the slinky vibe Us3 and John Lurie created for the '95 original. The score's kitsch/loopy quotient is filled by Sonny & Cher's "A Cowboys Work is Never Done" and The Rock's lovably fey send-up of "You Ain't Woman Enough."--Jerry McCulley

Gutted that "Cryin'" the duet between Christina and Steven wasn't on the album. I have had to put up with downloading the just aerosmith version which is great but the duet was faaabolous!! Otherwise a good album if you enjoyed the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for The Rock's solo, if nothing else Dec 14 2005
By Sarah Stegall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you need a little pick-me-up in the middle of the day, you can't miss with The Rock's rendition of "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man". It was worth the price of the whole CD just to hear that hilarious send-up, complete with the Rock's ad libs. Add to this the fact that you've got a FABULOUS collaboration between the Black-Eyed Peas and Sergio Mendes, and it's money well spent. Those two songs alone make it worth the money.
4.0 out of 5 stars More Christina Milian on this record please July 3 2005

Christina rocks the movie and then there are only 2 songs of her on this CD ? She has very good songs in the movie and even the cover-version of "Best of my love" would have been appreciated. She should be more in the spotlight here, since the movie dwells on her talent. Where is the duet with Aerosmith? And why was her follow up album more Britney than Soul, when the movie showed how great she sings soulful songs....strange decisions of record labels ?
