"Middle Men" is a smart, sleazy, well-made adult film about the early days of the Internet and the true story of the first men who sold adult entertainment online and made millions.

Luke Wilson gives the finest performance of his career as Jack Harris, the Texas family man who created the business model and wound up involved with all types of shady characters.

"Middle Men" is rated a strong R and is a cinematic cousin to the brilliant "Boogie Nights."

Luke Wilson is so good in "Middle Men," his performance deserves Oscar attention.

This surprisingly good film plays like a wild and dangerous roller coaster ride.
