Storyline

A satirical thriller about L.A.'s real estate roller coaster. Jack Woodman (James Jurdi) is a slick and hotshot Los Angeles property broker and real estate agent who appears on top of the world. But after getting greedy with a shady real estate deal, he ends up fired from a top broker firm R.E.G. by real-estate mogul Ron Glass (Burt Reynolds) and framed by Ron's menacing, drug-addled son, Aaron. As a result, Jack ends up being the owner of a rundown apartment slum building. One year later, the disgraced Jack is approached by a mysterious power player named Frank Hunter (Rob Lowe) and his sultry wife Lana (Jessica Clark) with an offer to discreetly market and sell their Malibu villa. However, more double crosses, adultery, murder, mistaken identity, crooked deals and revenge ensue as the question is always "who is scheming, using, and double crossing who?" Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Jessica Clark first auditioned for the role of Lana, she used an American accent. However, her natural British accent was just the right fit for the character so she wound up putting it to good use in the film. See more »

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 »

This is a fun and relatively clever little film, far from perfect and a bit slow to get going but generally enjoyable overall.

What's interesting about it is that it is set in the backdrop of the American real estate crises but somehow it doesn't dwell on the drama of that dilemma. Rather, it spins an energetic crime caper about a Malibu villa and all the players that are trying to sell it for their own very shady reasons. As long as the film stays with this threadline, it works. When it tries to become a bit message oriented with a subplot about a Downtown tenement that's tied to the sale of the house and to the main real estate agent, it loses momentum and becomes less zesty.

Fortunately, it maintains enough energy to keep the audience engaged and one most give credit to the younger actors in the film for really carrying it nicely. Lowe and Reynolds have smaller parts but it's really the fresh faced ingenues that make this film pop. Overall, "Pocket Listing" is certainly ambitious, somewhat flawed but undeniably compelling.
