Christopher Mallick's experiences in the 90s as chief executive of the Internet billing company Paycom informed this fictional saga about a Houston attorney and family man (Luke Wilson) who partners with two coked-out freaks (Giovanni Ribisi and Gabriel Macht) to turn their innovative computer code for an online porn hub into a multimillion-dollar enterprise. With Mallick as one of the producers, this Boogie Nights wannabe benefits from an insider's knowledge of how online commerce was born but suffers from a seemingly endless voice-over by the Wilson/Mallick character steering our sympathies in his direction (it's the sort of middle man the movie could have done without). Come for the tits and blow, stay for the business reporting; if you lose interest, there's always more tits and blow. George Gallo directed; with Jacinda Barrett, Terry Crews, Laura Ramsey, Kevin Pollak, and James Caan. R, 105 min.
