Out of Sight
Florida bank robber Jack Foley (George Clooney) plays a genteel game of cat and mouse with Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez), the stunning federal marshal he meets in the trunk of a getaway car, in this Steven Soderbergh-directed film that shows off his trademark nonlinear storytelling. Out of Sight received Oscar nominations for both its crack editing (Anne V. Coates) and its brilliant adaptation (Scott Frank) of Elmore Leonard's novel.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film adaptation of an Elmore Leonard book is racy and full of violence. Almost every character in the film pulls a gun or is shot at least once in the film. People steal cars, shoot people, do drugs, and even undermine criminal investigations. Add to that some really salty language and some sultry stripping (down to underwear) by Clooney and Lopez, and you have a fairly adult feature.
- Sexual Content
- Karen fantasizes about making out with Jack in a bath tub. There's talk about making love. Jack and Karen strip off their clothes down to their underwear, but you don't see anything else, and it's implied that they had sex. Karen wears only a robe and the two are seen in bed together.
- Considerable violence and gunplay. At the end of the film, nearly all the characters die, either because someone else shoots them or because they shoot themselves. There's some blood and a dead man is seen bleeding from the head. Kenneth threatens to rape Karen and later attempts to rape another woman. Maurice stabs a man to death in prison. Karen hits Kenneth in the head and the stomach with a baton. Karen gets a bruise on her head from a car crash. Maurice punches Jack.
- Lots of swearing, including "f--k," "ass," "s--t," "hell," "p--sy," "bitch," the "N" word, "goddamn," "assh--e," and "son of a bitch."
- Social Behavior
- Karen dates a married man. Jack and all his friends are criminals; they steal, assault, and kill people. Karen assists Jack in escaping from prison.
