Jennifer Lopez's best movie is leaving BBC iPlayerUniversal

Jennifer Lopez has been back on our screens this year with Prime Video's experimental This Is Me... Now: A Love Story, and we've got another Netflix outing to enjoy in May with sci-fi Atlas.

So there's no better time to revisit what remains Jennifer Lopez's best movie, 1998's stylish crime comedy-thriller Out of Sight, co-starring George Clooney, Ving Rhames and Don Cheadle.

Out of Sight is now available to watch on BBC iPlayer following its airing on BBC One earlier this month.

Be quick though, it's being removed from iPlayer on Sunday, March 31 at 11.59pm, so you've got less than a week to watch it.

For some, Out of Sight could also mark director Steven Soderbergh's best movie, but there's some stiff competition from the likes of Sex, Lies and Videotape, Behind the Candelabra and Traffic.

It's definitely up there with one of Soderbergh's finest movies though, as well as being one of the few successful adaptations of Elmore Leonard's novels.

Out of Sight sees Jennifer Lopez play federal marshal Karen Sisco who is determined to stop Jack Foley (Clooney), the most successful bank robber in the country, from carrying out one final robbery.

As their lives collide, the duo find themselves wondering if it's worth risking it all for their mutual attraction to each other.

Out of Sight stands at a strong 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, ahead of celebrated Lopez movies like Hustlers (87%), which saw her nominated for a Golden Globe, and Netflix documentary Halftime (82%).

Lopez has also had success on Netflix in recent years with 2023's The Mother becoming one of the streaming service's most-watched original movies of all time.

Out of Sight is being removed from BBC iPlayer on March 31.
