CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

Here is the synopsis for “Middle Men”:
In 1995, everyone had a VCR, music was sold in record stores and the worldwide Web was a newfound discovery. Businessman Jack Harris (Luke Wilson) had the perfect life: a beautiful family and a successful career fixing problem companies. And then he met Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht): two genius but troubled men who had invented the way adult entertainment is sold over the Internet.
When Jack agrees to help steer their business, he soon finds himself caught between a 23-year-old porn star and the FBI all while becoming one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs of his time. Inspired by a true story that proves business is a lot like sex, getting in is easy and pulling out is hard.
