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.

Sandra Bullock almost got the part of Karen Sisco but Steven Soderbergh was against it. He said: "I spent some time with Clooney and Bullock, and they actually did have a great chemistry. But it was for the wrong movie. I'm sure they could do a movie together. But not an Elmore Leonard movie." Clooney and Bullock appear together in 2013 movie Gravity (2013) See more »

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...
