Miramax Films owned the rights to the Ray Nicolette character, due to the fact that Jackie Brown (1997) went into production first, Quentin Tarantino felt it was imperative that Miramax not charge Universal for using the character. This move gave Universal Pictures enough leeway to use the film's character free of charge from Miramax. Michael Keaton's limited appearance as Ray Nicolette was a much more substantial element of Jackie Brown (1997). See more »

"Out of Sight" was one of the best movies of 1998, and yet it was ignored by moviegoers. I am amazed that most of George Clooney's movies fail, with the exception of "Batman and Robin" all of his films have been good. This film has good performances from a talented cast and great direction from an original story by Elmore Leonard. Highly reccomended.
