Anyone seen Middle Men?

I've wanted to see this for a couple months now and it doesn't look like it'll get a wide release since it's making very little in the 252 theaters it's in.

Seems like reviews are either they love it or hate it. So anyone seen it yet?

Re: Anyone seen Middle Men?

I saw it the weekend it was out. I liked it, you can tell that it was a condensed version of a story that probably could have been fleshed out a bit more. I thought the acting was fine, and the flashy look of the film went with the subject matter. My brother says I'm a sucker for drug & sex movies. He's right.

I'm very interested in seeing this, but it's not playing anywhere near me. I'll wait for Redbox.

Just caught this the other night and I can't say enough about it. It reminded me of Blow but based on the porn industry. Ribisi was excellent.

Can anyone recommend other movies like this?

Boogie Nights? Kind of...not really. It's about porn.

I was surprised by this one - not amazing but pretty decent overall. However like SPiRAL, I'm also a sucker for these type of films. I will probably buy the blu-ray if I see it cheap as it was certainly a solid rental.

Agreed. Solid rental. The first hour is great but it does lose steam the last hour.
