Wayne and Paul from the Countdown podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Wayne’s choice Out of Sight.


Out of Sight is the 1998 Steven Soderbergh comedy crime adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name starring George Clooney as sexy bank robber Jack Foley and Jennifer Lopez as sexy U.S Marshal Karen Sisco. Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Dennis Farina, Nancy Allen, Steve Zahn, Catherine Keener, and Albert Brooks co-star with cameos from Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson.

During a prison break out Sisco ends up in the car boot (trunk for you Americans) with Foley. Unable to resist the charms of Clooney, Sisco follows him through his next caper under the guise of arresting him for his crimes while also spending a romantic evening with him.

Out of Sight is a sexy cat and mouse film, despite being a (non-violent) bank robber it’s hard not to fall for Foley/Clooney and enjoy the colorful supporting character’s interactions. Is this the sexiest movie ever made? Quite possibly, Clooney and Lopez have genuine chemistry and while this isn’t a rom-com it’s an extremely enjoyable two hours and three minutes.



Fun and flighty with a great ensemble cast Out of Sight scores very highly on the recommend ability, less highly on the repeat viewing (due to the two hours run length) but it manages to score a very respectable 4.23 overall.
