Middle Men – Luke Wilson will sell you porn on the internet

Posted by LiveFor on February 22, 2010

This one is being talked about as a cross between Boogie Nights and Goodfellas – both are amazing films so that is a lot to live up to.

Directed by George Gallo it stars Luke Wilson, James Caan, Giovanni Ribisi, Jacinda Barrett, Kevin Pollak, Terry Crews, Gabriel Macht, Kelsey Grammer, Laura Ramsey, Christopher McDonald, and Robert Forster.

Below is the synopsis and the trailer.

Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) has a faithful and loving wife, two beautiful children, and a successful career fixing problem companies. When an associate calls him about an opportunity to help turn around a business that has fallen into trouble, he decides to take the job. Little does he know, it is a decision that will change his life in ways he never expected. Jack meets with Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), two genius but troubled men who have invented a way to sell adult entertainment over the Internet. The plan was brilliant but the execution wasn’t — they were making money hand-over-fist and losing it just as fast. Seeing the potential, Jack agrees to partner with Buck and Wayne, devising a way to bill the entertainment through a third party, taking the guilt out of the ultimate guilty pleasure. Before he knows it, he finds himself caught between the Russian mob, a 23- year-old porn star, the FBI, and losing his family in the process of becoming rich. 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.
