His escape from prison doesn't go as planned, since it's witnessed by deputy federal marshal Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Soderbergh understands the flaky, funny spirit of Leonard's characters and he gets his cast to express it."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"The characters all seem to have known each other for years, referring to long-held grudges and resentments that only gradually are revealed to the audience. They're a seedy, petty, dangerous and delightful bunch."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"By turns bleak, funny, touching, sexy and poignant, with bursts of violence that rise like sudden geysers from a still pool, Out of Sight is chock-full of dead-on performances."
‑ Serena Donadoni, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Across landscapes from sunny South Florida to snowy Detroit, George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez deliver a sizzling, palpable heat in Out of Sight."
‑ Sherri Winston, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"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."
‑ Alan Jones, Radio Times
"Out of Sight is slick in all the right ways."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"After many mishaps, the art of bringing Elmore Leonard's novels to the screen is coming to fruition. This latest adaptation, by director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Frank, gets it just about right."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Its effortless cool and flawless ensemble make it the best translation of an Elmore Leonard book yet."
‑ , Total Film
"The movie is wonderfully cast -- it has the strongest bench of any movie this year, with Albert Brooks and Don Cheadle in key supporting roles."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"There's a heist, a jail break, and a flawless melding of comedy and drama and Steven Soderbergh ties it together like a master."
‑ Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine
"Clooney is the most impressive he's been on film. Jack Foley feels real, not like some Hollywood improvisation. Foley is charming, handsome, graceful, cultured, energetic and disciplined. He just can't stop committing crimes."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"[A] now-classic romantic comedy -- with plenty of action and suspense."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"In playing a career criminal who can't get a break, Clooney has finally found a movie role that adroitly showcases his smoldering good looks and smart-aleck demeanor."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Much of the action seems more like warmed-over Quentin Tarantino than first-rate Steven Soderbergh."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"Clooney and Lopez sizzle in gun-happy heist flick."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
