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 »

A smart, fun, sexy dark comedy
19 November 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Movies like "Pocket Listing" are a dying breed. The smart, crime thriller is a rarity these days, but one that laces its cleverly constructed plot with welcome doses of dark humor and satire is an even more extinct cinema species.

The film is set in and around the greater Los Angeles area, following the ups and downs of a semi-shady real estate agent (played by talented new face Jurdi, who also wrote the razor sharp script) as he goes from hot shot yuppie to broken-down pauper. When he is hired to execute the mother of all real estate deals for a mysterious, too smooth for comfort tycoon (a terrific Rob Lowe, playing against type), he discovers that closing a deal may just be a life or death matter.

"Pocket Listing" is really a master's class in acting. The performances shepherd the already zesty material to a whole new level. Jurdi proves to be a more than capable protagonist, creating a character who's flawed but fascinating, slick but sympathetic, self-motivated but ultimately redeemable. Another two new faces who also add a lot to the film are Fahey and Clark. Fahey plays the devious, cruel trust-fund kid/real estate empire inheritor excellently. Clark proves to be an absolute bombshell as Lana, a truly unpredictable and mesmerizing femme fatale of the first order. In fact, Lana could be a distant relative of Sharon Stone's infamous maneater in "Basic Instinct." This is a great role for her, and she owns it.

The film also has supporting performances from some real Hollywood vets. Lowe is all whispery menace as the Malibu villa owner, perfecting the kind of fun, subtle badass we don't get the chance to see him play often. Gugliemi is enjoyable as a local gangster, and what a breath of fresh air to see Reynolds back in a small but notable role as a real estate mogul.

What makes "Pocket Listing" such a hoot is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. The whole film almost winks at you with its unabashed charm and over the top twists and turns. Don't expect this to be the most realistic depiction of the financial crash or the real estate market, but it's certainly one of the most edgy and entertaining films in some time which touches on those issues.

This one's a winner.
