George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez sizzle in this sexy, sly and snappy crime caper from director Steven Soderbergh, that neatly combines its 1970s heist-picture roots with sparkling romantic comedy. Adapted from the novel by Elmore Leonard, the plot gets a classy and playful screen makeover that has the stars on opposite sides of the law and fighting their instant attraction when robber Clooney escapes from prison and US Marshal Lopez vows to bring him to justice. Using intricate flashbacks and a keen visual style, Soderbergh takes a sharp script from Scott Frank - who also wrote Get Shorty - and weaves it into an ambitious and accomplished work. This is suspenseful, sophisticated and brimming with good humour and bright dialogue.


A charming bank robber breaks out of jail and takes a female US Marshal hostage. Managing to escape, she sets out to track him down as he prepares for one last job - but as the chase intensifies, so do their feelings for each other. Steven Soderbergh's romantic crime drama, based on Elmore Leonard's novel, with George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Ving Rhames and Don Cheadle.
