Trivia

The title refers to a real estate industry term used in the United States which denotes a property where a broker holds a signed listing agreement (or contract) with the seller, whether that be an "Exclusive Right to Sell" or "Exclusive Agency" agreement or contract, but where it is never advertised nor entered into a multiple listing system (MLS), or where advertising is limited for an agreed-upon period of time.

Goofs

When Rob Lowe is hitting golf balls into the canyon, his golf club switches from a righty to a lefty and then back, plus his swing side also switches. At the end you see him line up as a lefty, but then the long shot shows him hitting as a righty. This must be a post edit horizontal flip as Jack's jacket also magically flips from a button up left to a button up right jacket. Jacks hands are in his pockets in the back shot, but in the fore shot, his hands are out of his pockets. See more »

Sly, Snappish, and Satisfying
20 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

A shrewd script is nicely realized in this surprisingly funny and engaging little film which will hopefully garner the attention it deserves.

From the opening montage of the film, where a successful but smarmy L.A. real estate agent is casually addressing the audience by breaking the fourth wall and literally taking us on a tour of his gleefully duplicitous and lavish world, we know we're in for both a good time. But what we also get is an astutely satirical look at the superficial materialism we've grown to value as a society at large.

The film turns into both a morality play and eventually a chess game light thriller, but never loses both its edge or its playful, darkly comic tone. The performances by both known players (Lowe, Reynolds) and up and comers (Jurdi, Clark, Fahey) are equally effective and engaging, creating a terrific, character-driven piece which benefits largely from sharp dialog and even crisper delivery by its talented cast.

One can imagine that this would have been a much bigger, more widely publicized film if it was directed by the likes of a Scorsese, but kudos to the filmmakers for maintaining a uniquely independent spirit and combining genre elements which make this film both very commercial but also just quirky enough to sit outside the bombastic blockbuster zone. If you're looking for a clever and fun flick, make the investment in "Pocket Listing."
