Middle MenClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Gallo, for his part, is content to decorate a fairly conventional, intermittently entertaining crime chronicle with a bit of skin and a soupcon of pop sociology. There must be other ways to learn about pornography on the Internet.
Rotten: Perhaps it's inevitable that this cranked-up drama wants it both ways.
Fresh: This one's coming in under the radar. Keep an eye out...Best of all is Wilson, digging into his juiciest role in years.
Rotten: Middle Men is an anxious film, but not in a good way, in that it doesn't generate suspense so much as dread.
This is a very cool movie. I enjoyed this from start to finish. Very fascinating to see how the adult internet world came about and to watch these guys figure it out and profit from it. It looked like a fun ride and I personally enjoyed watching this. Its got some Hollywood twists in it, but you can see the big picture of how it all came together. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a interesting movie. Great cast too! I'll wind up watching this movie a couple of times.
This moive is awesome and I have to say it seems hollywood doesn't have a thing for Mr. Gallo. I hope people give it a shot.
