Just because you are a character doesn't mean you have character.

Gangster boss Marsellus Wallace is out of town and leaves Vincent Vega the honorable but not easy task of taking care of his wife Mia. Mia is used to always getting what she wants and is not easily satisfied. Vincent's best friend, Jules, helps him out with good advice - they discuss, among other things, European burgers and the dangers of a foot massage.

While Jules and Vincent do a job for Wallace, pick up a suitcase and shoot a couple of guys, they almost get themselves killed. Another mishap on the way home generates the need to change cars and get new clothes. Jules believes in divine intervention, and decides to give up his job. Vincent, however, has an encounter with the boxer Butch Coolidge.

Coolidge was paid by Wallace to lose his next fight. But he has other plans, thus putting both Wallace and himself in an unpleasant situation ...

A spectacularly entertaining piece of pop culture. (Variety)
