Synopsis

Chili Palmer is a Miami loanshark who's sent to Los Angeles to collect on a gambling debt from film producer Harry Zimm. Harry's luck may have changed though; Chili is a big movie fan--even of the B-movie screamers that Harry churns out. Instead of breaking Harry's legs, Chili figures--what the hell--and pitches him an idea that could be the break of Harry's career. Chili soon discovers that loansharking was the perfect training ground for making movies... you have to be ruthless to make it in Hollywood.
