Last night I watched one of my Netflix DVD’s…2009’s MIDDLE MEN…starring Luke Wilson, Gabriel Macht, James Caan, and Giovanni Ribisi. I must say…it was a pretty dope movie. I wished I would have seen this in the theaters when it came out – but never had the chance. The movie’s based on a true story of how PORN hit the internet. See, Luke Wilson plays this smart dude – - who can pretty much turn around any bad thing…into a good thing. He’s a fixer you might say.
Well, one day – these two guys decide their going to spice up the internet – - – take a few naked pictures…place them online…try to make a little $$$. WELL, a couple of days later…BOOM!!! This little idea of theirs…explodes and their making crazy money…problem is…they have no idea how to run a business….that’s where Luke Wilson’s character comes in. He’s called in as a favor by James Caan’s character…a not so straight guy – - well, soon Luke Wilson finds out that there’s more to this then just a few naked pictures. (LOL) I’m talking about porn stars, the Russian mob, a murder, and even some child porn.
Yep – this movie has some serious crazy twists and turns…I think that’s why I liked it so much. MIDDLE MEN is definitely worth checking out…not only is the story good…but…who doesn’t love a few porn stars, right? (LOL)
I give MIDDLE MEN…3 out of 5 POPCORNS!
