EP. 500.2 — Out of Sight

Paul & Amy get in the trunk with 1998’s sly George Clooney & Jennifer Lopez crime comedy Out of Sight! They discuss why Elmore Leonard’s stories lend themselves so well to Hollywood adaptations, learn how Lopez’s fearlessness made her the perfect match for Clooney, and ask if this is the Steven Soderbergh movie that deserves to go to space. Plus: How to have charisma like Clooney.


Next week, Paul & Amy are talking about Jackie Brown! You can join the conversation on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6. Check out this week’s spotlight episode from the Unspooled archives, Mean Girls: https://www.earwolf.com/episode/mean-girls/.
