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

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 »

Very Entertaining 8/10
3 May 2015 | by scarlett-42365See all my reviews

A thoroughly entertaining expose on the treacherous dealings of contemporary real estate agents in Los Angeles.

The film starts off strong then sags a little in the middle, losing its way a bit when main character Jack falls from grace and winds up a landlord at a slum building. Things really pick up though when he is hired by a sexy vixen to sell a Malibu villa owned by her and her quietly menacing husband (a super fun Lowe).

Not the most realistic and by the book depiction of commerce, economics, and recession, "Pocket Listing" soars most when it is combining both crime genre and dark comedy elements. Give credit to new faces Jurdi and Clark for really turning on the heat and delivering stand out performances which more than hold their own opposite experienced vets like Lowe and Reynolds.

"Pocket Listing" takes a bit to build up but when it does, it truly delivers. 8/10
