Out of Sight (1998): Trading snappy banter with a tough-but-feminine Jennifer Lopez, Clooney was sexy as hell as a career bank robber in Steven Soderbergh's funny and surprising film. The scene in which the two flirt at a hotel bar, with its warm lighting and flattering close-ups, is probably the movie's best-known and it crackles with romantic tension. But Clooney is called upon to do much more than smolder. "Out of Sight" ranges from buddy comedy to gripping suspense to sultry noir, and Clooney has the versatility to keep up with all those varying genres. He's probably a bad guy and he's most certainly unreliable, but he's also irresistible. Clooney makes that contrast work.
