Out of Sight: The best Elmore Leonard film adaptation? It gets my vote. Has none of the “look at us perform” ingness of the Get Shortys and their ilk. And in the DVD extra material it turns out J-Lo was actually in a trunk initially for the in a car trunk scene. Who knew she would go on to Monster in Law, Gigli and a host of other so-memorable films I’m hard pressed to remember any others? George Clooney certainly didn’t falter, nor Soderbergh. Yet it’s not either of their greatest movies by a very long shot. That said, it’s certainly not boring and hugely approachable, recommendable even, although, like the steep drops of Hwy 1 to the roaring surf, and the hairpin turns, not to everyone’s taste I guess.
