Rate-a-Trailer: Luke Wilson in Middle Men


If you’d forgotten how different life was during the ’90s web boom, there’s a line in the trailer for Middle Men that provides some nice context. Luke Wilson turns to one of his business partners (Gabriel Macht) who’s claiming to be broke and says, “You’ve got a check here for $2 million and it’s under a candy bar,” to which he replies, “And what, that’s a bad thing?” The drama, which also stars Giovanni Ribisi, Kelsey Grammer, and James Caan, is inspired by the true story of Jack Harris, the man who “invented” internet porn. Take a peek and let us know if you think it looks more exciting than the summer’s other major computer geek movie, The Social Network.

Middle Men opens August 6, 2010.
