  • Ocean's Eleven - Danny Ocean and his ten accomplices plan to rob three Las Vegas casinos simultaneously.
  • Wall Street - A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider whom takes the youth under his wing.
  • Entrapment - An insurance agent is sent by her employer to track down and help capture an art thief.
  • Taxi - A mouthy and feisty taxicab driver has hot tips for a green and inept cop set on solving a string of New York City bank robberies committed by a quartet of female Brazilian bank robbers.
  • Casino - Greed, deception, money, power, and murder occur between two mobster best friends and a trophy wife over a gambling empire.
  • Slumdog Millionaire - A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
