Critic's Score: 60/100

Director: George Gallo

Stars: Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, Gabriel Macht

Wayne Beering and Buck Dolby are drugged out geniuses with lots of ideas but they can never seem to get their act together. But when they come up with the idea to create a porn site - and charge for it (the first ever site to do so), their idea may be too lucrative for them to handle. Straight-laced business man, Jack Harris, is brought in to team up with them and turn their profitable idea into a legit business. Making money in the pornography industry is pretty easy, but staying true to yourself when surrounded by that much wealth, luxury, sex, crime and temptations, is much harder.

User Review

Highly recommended to anyone looking for a tantalizing and action packed crime movie!

Rating: 10/10

Middle Men is a film that many should watch and understand how the possibility of purchasing products online was created. This film offered an extremely entertaining perspective on Internet porn and offered a thrilling ride of crime fighting and hustling.  Luke Wilson who plays a level headed character finds himself in all sorts of messes and throughout this film can you really understand how a normal guy could get caught up in a crazy world.  Luke is perfect for this role and really shines with Giovanni Ribisi and Gabriel Macht.  These three guys together blew me away.  I found myself watching this film laughing, feeling exhilarated, and intrigued to learn about another world I had no idea about (Internet Porn).   It's interesting to hear what really happens in this kind of world and how people can overcome obstacles.  Especially, when their family is on the line.

I would highly recommend this film to anyone looking to watch a tantalizing and action packed crime movie.  I will definitely buy this movie when it comes out on DVD.
