YMMV: Get Shorty
- Award Snub: John Travolta did get a Golden Globes for Best Actor in a Comedy for playing Chili, but wasn't even nominated for the Oscars. Considering this was coming during the "comeback period" of Pulp Fiction throughout The '90s, this was a slight snub.
- A decent Elmore Leonard -based screenplay not even getting a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination? HUGE snub.
- Magnificent Bastard: Chili Palmer, who almost effortlessly manages to play, manipulate or outwit everyone he meets.
- One-Scene Wonder: Renee Props as Nicki, Martin Weir's rock star girlfriend.
- Bette Midler as the widow of Harry's screenwriter.
- Alex Rocco as Ray Bones' boss, who thinks Ray is stupid for starting a beef with Chili in the first place when Bones asks him to get involved.
- Retroactive Recognition: James Gandolfini as Bear, a few years before playing Tony.
