Imaginative plot with a very funny script about a bunch of colorful characters who pioneered the online porn industry in 1997. Fast moving and entertaining film with some old timers: James Caan, Kelsey Grammer and Robert Forster.

Quite an entertaining and engaging story about a business fixer Jack Harris who gets involved with two dimwitted business partners who accidentally invent the first version of an electronic payment system over the internet. Which would becomes a boom for the adult movie industry and Russian gangsters. Family man Jack Harris has to wade through a sea of sleazy characters from mobsters,porn stars and shady lawyers while trying not to get sucked into the whirlpool of excess himself. Though based on the "true story" of Christopher Mallick, the narrative here though entertaining is a completely fictional and far fetched. The backstory of the production of the film is just as outlandish as Mallick used 30 mil of his personal wealth to get his "story" filmed(with almost no box office return) while fighting off accusations by customers of maleficence at his defunct offshore e-billing companies. Luke Wilson is quite good playing the clever and unflappable Jack Harris and it is shame we don't see him in more films.

Many quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors. One of the funniest is what comes after this scene that shows a goofy smiling man enjoying a family dinner with his happy children around a dinner table as a woman is reading something in the kitchen (not in IMDb):

The divorce rate is high enough in this country, without wives opening up the monthly statement and seeing that their husband bought something like FilthyAsianWhores.com.
