Out of Sight

Jack Foley (George Clooney) is a professional bank robber who has robbed more banks than anyone on the FBI's computer. Most of them with his partner Buddy Bragg (Ving Rhames). Karen Cisco (Jennifer Lopez) is a Federal Marshall who manages to catch Foley as he escapes from prison. But Foley and Buddy overpower her and take her hostage while they escape. Jack makes a connection with Cisco as they lie in the trunk of Karen's car together and pretty soon, Jack finds himself wanting to keep her around, so that he can see what it would've been like if they met under different circumstances. The sub-plot to this film shows a loudmouth convict named Glenn Michaels (Steve Zahn) who learns of a stash of uncut diamonds in the house of another convict named Richard Ripley (Albert Brooks) who pays for protection in prison from the volatile gangster Maurice Miller (Don Cheadle). Michaels sets up the score for Foley, Bragg and himself, but find Miller and his crew forcefully joining the squad.

Plot hole: When Karen is at Moselle's apartment looking for Snoopy, we overhear Kenneth on the phone talking about some boxers who are going to fight. The first thing we hear is him clarifying that the fights were at the State Theater. The fights are always at the State Theater and they always go there to watch them, so it makes no sense for him to have said that, other than to subtly benefit the plot.

Question: When Karen is being questioned by her superior in the hospital, he has her written report. But, when did she have time to write it? She met Foley, got thrown in the trunk, got into an accident, then went to the hospital.

Answer: Movies tend to gloss over realistic details and compress events to tell the story. It is possible she dictated it into a recorder and someone transcribed it into a written report.
