A few months ago I attended the press screening for The Social Network and I was blown away. I felt that it was the first movie to properly explain why exactly it is so cool to work with the web, with start-ups and to be involved with the fastest growing medium in the history of the world.

Well, today I’m writing about a similar, but different, kind of movie: Middle Men

This is also a movie about online entrepreneurship, but set in a different time, and about a different subject: adult entertainment. The subtitle of the movie is “The guys who brought the XXX to the WWW. Inspired by a true story”

I don’t think this is a movie that I’m going to recommend to my parents so they can get an idea what kind of business I’m in, but I’m sure it will be awesome. Check the trailer:
