Wayne Beering and Buck Dolby are drugged out geniuses with lots of ideas but they can never seem to get their act together. But when they come up with the idea to create a porn site – and charge for it (the first ever site to do so), their idea may be too lucrative for them to handle. Straight-laced business man, Jack Harris, is brought in to team up with them and turn their profitable idea into a legit business. Making money in the pornography industry is pretty easy, but staying true to yourself when surrounded by that much wealth, luxury, sex, crime and temptations, is much harder.

Did You Know?
Ron Cadwell, who plays the town car driver, is in real life also owner of an internet billing company and is a friend of the producer Christopher Mallick.
When Buck and Wayne are looking at their computer after their first sale in 1997, the blue and green task bar of Windows XP, which was not released until 2001, is clearly visible at the bottom of the screen.
You know there's nothing to jack off to on the internet?
Watch a video, you degenerate!
Highly recommended to anyone looking for a tantalizing and action packed crime movie!
Middle Men is a film that many should watch and understand how the
possibility of purchasing products online was created. This film
offered an extremely entertaining perspective on Internet porn and
offered a thrilling ride of crime fighting and hustling. Luke Wilson
who plays a level headed character finds himself in all sorts of messes
and throughout this film can you really understand how a normal guy
could get caught up in a crazy world. Luke is perfect for this role
and really shines with Giovanni Ribisi and Gabriel Macht. These three
guys together blew me away. I found myself watching this film
laughing, feeling exhilarated, and intrigued to learn about another
world I had no idea about (Internet Porn). It's interesting to hear
what really happens in this kind of world and how people can overcome
obstacles. Especially, when their family is on the line.
I would highly recommend this film to anyone looking to watch a
tantalizing and action packed crime movie. I will definitely buy this
movie when it comes out on DVD.
