Middle Men

Genre: Mystery and Thriller; Starring: James Caan, Gabriel Macht, Giovanni Ribisi, Luke Wilson; Director: George Gallo; Author: George Gallo; Release Date Wide: 08/06/2010; Distributor: Paramount Pictures

Based on the former life of one of its own producers, Middle Men stars Luke Wilson as Jack, a family guy who gets rich on late-1990s Internet porn.

On the one hand, the movie revels in the world of skeevy Web entrepreneurs and the mobsters who demand a cut of the action. On the other, Jack comes out smelling like — well, maybe not like a rose, but certainly like a guy who anticipates his next career as a legit Hollywood producer. C+
