Inspired by the reputed experiences of the film's producer, Middle Men casts its protagonist in a suspiciously flattering light... Fortunately Wilson brings enough dark and disreputable shades to the character for the film to work.

Is Jack, who is patterned on a real-life character, sociopathic or just plain clueless? Gallo doesn't seem to care. He cares about parading before us lowlifes living the high life.

Sex, Lies And MasterCard. An irreverent, strictly behind the scenes tabloid peep show about those thankfully unsung guys who perpetrated the online porn revolution, without ever taking their clothes off.

Luke Wilson's terrific performance renders an uneasy hybrid of crime drama, comedy and ecommerce far more compelling than it otherwise would be.

With outstanding performances from a brilliant ensemble cast, Middle Men turns out to be wickedly entertaining with some of the best acting you will see all year.

Far from a classic and won't tug at your heartstrings, but it manages to be captivating from top to bottom with a refreshingly sharp and funny screenplay, a great ensemble cast and a lively soundtrack.

Middle Men spins one heck of a yarn, so crazy it must be true.

Zealously nasty fun which, surprisingly, ends on something of a note of upbeat grace and familial redemption...

This very well-acted, often amusing and dirty-minded hard-R film still stands out in a sea of market-driven blandness.

Director George Gallo embraces the gamey porn scene with gusto: There's oodles of nudity, of course (and lots of over-inflated breastage).

Think Boogie Nights meets Casino, though it's not likely to make the lasting impression of either seminal film.

A highly entertaining, flawed, ripped-off-and-reassembled carnival of sleaze.

A colorful supporting cast gives this uneven Internet porn saga a potent boost.

This one's coming in under the radar. Keep an eye out...Best of all is Wilson, digging into his juiciest role in years.

'Middle Men' may not have the action and slapstick comedy that one expects to see this late in the summer, but the film is filled with zest and actually worth exploring.

Even without much character development, the compelling story holds, mostly due to Wilson.

This inspired-by-a-true-story film about the birth of Internet porn is giddily sleazy, full of convincing crazies and criminals, as well as the scumbags and wannabes who surround them.
