In Honor Of ‘Drive’: 9 Smooth Movie Getaways

The Dark Knight

See? Clowns!! This one is especially cool because it didn’t cost the Joker a dime besides weapons, ammo, and distinctive clown masks. He totally side-stepped labor charges by placing an ad on Craigslist for henchmen who also he arranged to have killed one by one. In the end, he is the only one left standing with the mob’s money.

Ocean’s Eleven

It takes finesse to take down a casino. And even more finesse to take them all down simultaneously. Of course, you need help to pull something like this off. For that level of style, you need to hire a compulsive eater, a pyromaniac, a gymnast, two idio brothers, a wet behind the ears pick-pocket, two old guys, a computer guy, Bernie Mac, and a recognizable ex-con with a motive. Wait. How’d this plan come together in the first place?

The Score

This one’s on the list because it took balls. Posing as a clown is totally played out at this point, so who is the next person you would least suspect to crack your safe and make off with your diamonds? That’s right. Edward Norton poses as a mentally handicapped man to gain access to millions of dollars worth of diamonds. It works for getting into Chuck E. Cheese and it works for getting rich, too.
