Summary: Clooney keeps working it.
George Clooney stars as an extremely charismatic bank robber, who bumps into a lovely federal marshall while escaping from prison, and falls in love. It's a very charming story, with some excellent casting. Michael Keaton does a cameo at one point, and it looks like he just walked off the set from Jackie Brown, which I found very amusing. The story is a little complex and weaves back and forth with flashbacks, which confused about half of the audience. Overall it's a very good "feel-good" date flick, or amusing in its own right, but not as excellent as many of the critics have raved.

Summary: Groovy crime fiction
A fascinating story of a criminal and a cop. Clooney and Lopez give exceptional performances in the two lead roles, and the supporting cast is outstanding as well. The story has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing right until the end. I started watching this movie at about 1:00AM, and couldn't turn it off.
