Tom Everett Scott,
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
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.

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 »

NEVER EVER KILL YOUR CONNECTION TO THE BUYER WITH A KITCHEN KNIFE!
A very interesting mix of different genres, but especially a backstage look at the real estate market in Los Angeles. Of all the actors showcased, Jurdi excels and does his job very well. It also must be noted that the trophy Malibu villa is not the best visual. That prize belongs to Clark, who turns Lana into a femme fatale to remember.
