A very nice interesting film. only climax is bit of let down.

Clunky script, plot all over the place, jumping from decade to decade. The actors are doing their best with a pretty poor lot.

Really good and enjoyable film although a bit complicated with the double crossing and different characters especially with my brain the way it is.

While Luke Wilson has never really got my attention he has done a movie now and again that does. This being one of them. Middle Men is not your typical Luke Wilson comedy. It's much rather Guy Ritchie meets Martin Scorsese. That's not a bad thing by any means. What Middle Men will do is keep you entertained and engaged from beginning to end. The cast is pretty impressive with James Caan and Kevin Pollack also lending their talents. Most of the actors in this are here for a scene or two but they all work and blend into the story nicely. Everyone played their part well especially Giovanni Ribisi's performance as the coked up Wayne Beering. His mannerism's and habit's were entertaining. It's an intelligent film full of dark humor about pornography and crime rings. My only gripes with Middle Men would be the pacing of the story, I felt if they had a longer runtime it would have flowed through effortlessly. They are minor issues though, they balanced the comedy well with the crime elements of the plot. It should be said that Middle Men is very underrated.

A smart and entertaining flick based on the biggest business on the planet's transition to the internet.

Good story telling and cast. Nothing outstanding but a good time and laughs.

The cast is strong and does a very solid job. The cast is led by Luke Wilson, who is not one I think of when I think of great actors. But he is quite impressive here. But the script of the film is just not there. This is where the film falls apart, and makes the film hard to watch.

Una entretenida historia sobre el origen del mayor contenido en la internet

Don't know (and actually don't care) how much of this "based on real events" movie is true, but it was Goodfellas kinda fun. The acting was solid, the movie was always entertaining and while being sometimes far-fetched, it found ways, in it's core, to be somewhat believable. In the end, this was no on the History Channel special, so just sit back and give yourself some pleasure (wink wink!)

The situation gets more and more complicated as Jack Harris digs himself into a deeper and deeper hole but it keeps the viewer interested in finding out how it will all resolve.

I loved this movie! Luke Wilson is, as usual, flat as all hell... but this supporting cast and incredible storytelling is more than enough to keep you engaged. I love Ribisi, I love Caan, and for some reason I dug this movie more than most.

I did like this movie, but I don't really see how it's a comedy. The characters are interesting, but there is a lot of gratuitous nudity, even for a movie about the porn industry. Over all, I would say that if you go into it without expecting a lot of laughs, the story is worth seeing.

Luke Wilson is great as a leading man, I can't figure out why the critics always pan him. This was a good movie, but beware - it's rated R for all the reasons a movie can be rated R. If there's something that makes you uncomfortable, it's probably in this movie.

Mad that this is supposedly real.
Good film though

This very well-acted, often amusing and dirty-minded hard-R film still stands out in a sea of market-driven blandness. Inspired by the reputed experiences of the film's producer, Middle Men casts its protagonist in
a suspiciously flattering light. Far from a classic and won't tug at your heartstrings, but it manages to be captivating from top to bottom.

One of Luke Wilson's best movies. I thought this was really good.
