Storyline

Lenny Freeman is a straight-laced old-school accountant with a dream; to become a famous stand-up comedian. The problem is he's not very funny. Not even close. When his mother dies, leaving him nothing but debt and her '53 Oldsmobile, Lenny hits the road to chase his dream in Vegas and auditioning for Monte Guy's annual "Stand-Up Stand-Off". Along the way (and against his better judgment) Lenny picks up a mysterious traveler named "Hitch" and his trip quickly turns from bad to worse when they stop at a small-town bar. Lenny jumps on stage as a warm-up act, but a run-in with a heckler leads to murder. Now with a dead body in his trunk, Lenny and Hitch are on the run. As the body count piles up, Lenny tries to free himself from his psychotic sidekick and escape to Vegas with the girl of his dreams. But Hitch won't shake so easily. They've got a contract.

Unexpected surprise
18 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you like Cohen Bros. movies, you'll love Middle Man. There is crazy much nuance to this great little film. I was captivated from the first to last act. It's really that good. It's a shame I have to enter five lines to recommend this movie. The cast is perfect; the location shots are Breaking Bad excellent. Enjoy.
