    Chili Palmer changed my life...<br /><br />Guess we Southeners are the only ones who read. Kind of same topic, Steven King's Joyland is loosely based on Carolina Beach.

    loved Get Shorty...the sequel movie Be Cool got a little stupid (which seems to happen to any flick with a gratuitous injection of Steven Tyler), but that's not Leonard's fault. Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) was great as the gay bouncer/wannabe actor. have to try to catch up with Justified, the FX series that features Leonard's US Marshall Raylan Givens. Leonard was a great writer.
