STAR­RING: Chan­ning Ta­tum

WHO - - The List -

Jimmy Lo­gan (Ta­tum) is a big old West Vir­ginia boy— he looks thicker than a meat­loaf sand­wich—but not al­to­gether a good ol’ boy: he teams up with his hair­dresser sis­ter Mel­lie (Ri­ley Keough) and bar­tender brother Clyde (Adam Driver, out­fit­ted with a lob­ster-size pros­thetic fore­arm) to rob a race­track in Char­lotte, North Carolina. The story in­volves money sluic­ing through pneu­matic tubes, a jailed de­mo­li­tions ex­pert (Daniel Craig), vin­tage John Den­ver songs and, at one point, peo­ple play­ing horse­shoes with toi­let seats. Given such non­sense—plus a cast pep­pered with Katie Holmes, Hi­lary Swank and Dwight Yoakam— you wouldn’t be wrong if you thought this funny, slick-as-oil ca­per from di­rec­tor Steven Soder­bergh sounded like a red­neck riff on the films he made with Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Near the end you even hear the crime de­scribed as “Ocean’s 7-Eleven.” (Out now)

Craig is just as ex­plo­sive as his Bond al­ter ego in Lo­gan Lucky.
