An extremely entertaining dark comedy, Underrated Film.

It is also pretty entertaining in the way of comedy, drama, nudity, it's got it all, a great compelling story to boot.

Before anyone questions my hetero-ness I might point out that apparently the internet still has the capability of sourcing near-nude photos and video of real women, I just wouldn't have to sit through a boring two hour film to get to them.

His mannerism's and habit's were entertaining.

Great story idea but bland execution .

'Middle Men' is refreshing, wickedly funny and entertaining.

However, if you can get past that, you might find the movie fairly entertaining and at times hilarious, thanks to some quite original plot twists and turns.

The Movie looks great and is mostly effective, but sometimes becomes disjointed with a lot of Subplots and a whole lot of Characters sliding in and out.

I found this to be a very entertaining story, accepting that it probably is mostly fiction.

Entertaining, engaging and funny story.

Don't get me wrong, Caan played a good part, it was just boring when he was on screen as compared to the action/comedy/drama going on during the rest of the film.

Meet the film that made working in the porn industry quite bland.

Well worth watching.

This film offered an extremely entertaining perspective on Internet porn and offered a thrilling ride of crime fighting and hustling.

Highly recommended to anyone looking for a tantalizing and action packed crime movie.

There are but a few fact-based films that are both funny, intriguing and intense and George Gallo's 'Middle Men' is one of them.

But nevertheless, it's extremely entertaining from start to finish.

I think the James Caan Film Festival of Glory is passed its prime; I know we are talking about Sonny Corleone here, but Caan's performance as the conniving lawyer Jerry Haggerty was profoundly silly and pretentious.

Overall this was a very enjoyable movie and I highly recommend it.

I would highly recommend this film to anyone looking to watch a tantalizing and action packed crime movie.

The performances of Luke Wilson, James Caan and others involved make it enjoyable.

"Middle Men" is particularly well acted and interesting enough especially about a recent historical story that isn't very well known, that it can mostly be forgiven for its poor structure and confusion of genres.

Fairly Entertaining, Even if Scorcese Wannabe .

Two alcoholic, drug abusing, going nowhere porn-addicts have a moment of clarity and decide the time has come that people… OK guys… need to pay for their online porn.

Well it's highly entertaining and keep's it's pace throughout the movie,in the last 30 minutes things really heat up.

Even scenes that *should* raise hairs do little but rouse a little interest (save for Terry Crews or Ribisi since they go over the top), and it rolls along to its next predictable moment.

Overall, it's just enjoyable enough for me to recommend it, for whatever that's worth.
