Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
A career bank robber busts out of jail (Clooney) with the help of his buddy (Rhames) and kidnaps a US Marshal (Lopez) in the process. When the two cons head for Detroit to pull off their final big scam, the Marshal is put on their case but she finds she is attracted to one of them and has second thoughts about bringing them in.

I know a guy who walks into a bank with a little glass bottle. He tells everyone it's nitroglycerine. He scores some money off the teller, walks out. On his way out, the bottle breaks, he slips on it and knocks himself out. The "nitro" was Canola oil. I know more fucked-up bank robbers than ones who know what they're doing. I doubt if one in twenty could tell you where the dye pack is. Most bank robbers are fucking morons.

No one should disagree with me when I say that the sexual tension between Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney was the best on-screen in a long time. What I love about Soderbergh is his ability to create really sexy scenes without showing anything. As for Mr. Clooney, everyone should lay off of him because he has proven that he is a great actor. The whole entire cast is perfect and I would love to sit with this amazing director and find out how he does it. It is one of the few films I can watch again and again, and I think you should all do the same...
