Summary
Loan shark Chili Palmer has done his time as a gangster. So when "business" takes him to L.A. to collect a debt from a down-and-out filmmaker, he jumps headfirst into the Hollywood scene. All would be smooth for this cool new producer, if it weren't for the drug smugglers and gangsters who won't leave him alone
