The 50 Best Movies of the '90s

36. Out of Sight (1998)

Director: Steven Soderbergh
Stars: George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Ving Rhames, Steve Zahn, Don Cheadle, Albert Brooks, Dennis Farina, Luis Guzman, Isaiah Washington, Nancy Allen, Catherine Keener

Out of Sight is, and isn't, the crime-based romantic comedy that you'd expect. Sure, the film was made with the intent to be your run-of-the mill, entertaining, thrilling and sexy blockbuster by casting the two most beautiful actors in Hollywood, George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez, as its leading actors. But the movie didn't even sell that well at the box-office.

On the other hand, Out of Sight received critical acclaim because it was able to balance comic Hollywood entertainment and unconventional characters, plot and dialogue all at the same time. It's really worth it just to watch its amazing cast kick ass and get their asses kicked. —JS
