Representing the 1990s, Pulp Fiction is an ultra-hip, multi-strand crime comedy featuring Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson), hitmen with a penchant for philosophical discussions. Their storyline is interwoven with those of their boss, gangster Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames); his actress wife, Mia (Uma Thurman); struggling boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis); master fixer Winston Wolfe (Harvey Keitel); and a nervous pair of armed robbers, “Pumpkin” (Tim Roth) and “Honey Bunny” (Amanda Plummer).
