Product Description

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.

Middle Men argues pretty convincingly that Internet commerce wouldn't be possible without porn. Two cocaine-driven would-be pornographers named Wayne (Giovanni Ribisi, Avatar) and Buck (Gabriel Macht, The Spirit) invented the credit card protocol that makes buying over the Internet possible--and then came close to capsizing from their own indulgences and some bad decisions involving Russian mobsters. That's where Jack Harris (Luke Wilson, The Royal Tenenbaums) came in. Harris is simply a levelheaded guy who can see solutions where others only see problems--and he sees the potential to make more money than even Buck and Wayne had dreamed. What's most surprising about Middle Men is how a movie based on a true story featuring porn stars and Russian gangsters has turned out a bit bland--particularly since it's written and directed by George Gallo, who wrote one of the most character-rich screenplays ever, Midnight Run. Of course, as one of the movie's producers is the man on whom Jack Harris is based, it was unlikely that Harris would be depicted as anything but a fundamentally decent guy who lost his way for a while. Despite this, Middle Men features an abundance of entertaining supporting performances (Kelsey Grammer, James Caan, Kevin Pollack, and Robert Forster make pungent appearances) and many of the true-to-life twists are startling. Above all, Rade Serbedzija (Before the Rain) gives the movie a jolt of pure menace as the Russian mob boss. --Bret Fetzer
