Editorial Reviews

In 1995, everyone had a VCR, music was sold in record stores, and the world wide web was a newfound discovery. Businessman Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) had the perfect life - a beautiful family and a successful career fixing problem companies. Then he met Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), two genius but troubled men, who had invented the way adult entertainment is sold over the internet. When Jack agrees to help steer their business, he soon finds himself caught between a 23-year-old porn star and the FBI, all the while becoming one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs of his time. Witness a story so outrageous, you won't believe it's true. A story that proves business is a lot like sex: getting in is easy, pulling out is hard.

Format: DVD
A section in the end credits for "Middle Men" asserts that, although it was inspired by a true story, the film is, in fact, a work of fiction. I've tended to find this annoying, especially in relation to horror movies. In the case of "Middle Men," however, the assertion fascinates me, for Christopher Mallick, the film's producer, has claimed that much of what we see - 80%, apparently - is based on his own experiences. A former chief executive of Paycom, the Texas-born entrepreneur was a key player in bringing the adult entertainment industry to the internet, pioneering the technology that makes online purchases, especially monthly memberships to porn sites, easy and secure. In essence, he was a middle man. His efforts have paid off; according to a set of statistics published by Jerry Ropelato in 2006, the annual revenue of internet porn was nearly $3 billion in the United States alone. I have no doubt that the rate has increased since then.

As to how much of this film is true, as to what facts have been embellished or altered or altogether made up, I obviously have no way of knowing. That, of course, only makes it that much more irresistible. In the film, Mallick is reinterpreted as Jack Harris (Luke Wilson), who begins as a respectable and competent businessman, having a knack for talking and negotiating with people of every flavor, including mobsters that enjoy busting people's kneecaps with baseball bats. Sometime between the mid to late 1990s, he becomes involved with Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), two Los Angeles cokeheads who realized they could build an empire by scanning dirty pictures onto their computer, posting them on the internet, and selling them for $9.99.

A true story about the men who came up with the idea to sell adult entertainment off the internet. After two slackers (Ribisi & Gabriel Macht) make over a million dollars in two months by coming up with a program to make money off of internet porn the russian mob wants thier cut. They become partners with Jack Harris (Wilson) who takes thier business in to a legit area and makes them more money then they dreamed of. This movie really surprised me in the fact that I was expecting a straight comedy. While this movie had its really funny moments its also dramatic throughout. An amazing cast helps tell the story of someone other then Mark Zuckerberg getting rich off the internet. The events that happen in the movie made me wonder why I've never heard of this guy before. Overall this was a very enjoyable movie and I highly recommend it. I give it a B+.

Would I watch again? - Yes, I definately would

Gratuitous titty, losers turned rich boys, and so much more, Middle Men really offers little except a predictable story line and the promise of a boring evening in front of the tube. It's not particularly entertaining or memorable. I was left simply wishing I had picked something else.

With such a great cast this seemed to be a solid bet but both my wife and I were disappointed. And how this is in the Comedy section is a mystery. Yes it had a few funny moments but its definitely not a comedy. At the end of the movie we both wished we had made a different choice. As a "based on true event" type movie it was interesting but even then you will probably find many other movies that are more entertaining and have better character development. I kept feeling like there were points in the story that were being left out just to make the main character look better.

This is a movie that had me laughing because of funny things, ridiculous things, and stupid things. I would switch back and forth from admiration to disbelief. How could two "smart" guys come up with a genious plan and squander it? The Blu-ray is very good quality.

this nearly 2hr movie is nearly 2hrs too long. the unnecessary zigzagging between various timepoints and locations, among other things, made it a struggle to watch. the best part about it was probably the soundtrack of top 40 hits.

I was expecting a comedy, but it turned out to be some sort of elaborate caper. Great line-up of players. I had to know how it ended. I was most surprised by Gabriel Macht. I had only really seen him in a couple of things. It was entertaining for sure.
