I enjoy Jessie Eisenberg as an actor. I found his character to be quite cocky in this movie, but I enjoyed it. He pulls it off well. Good story!

I tried a few times to watch it, but I think that there is a scratch or something cause it slowed down my entire computer.

Even better after second viewing, and have to own it after a third! Love the fast paced, take-no-prisoners, betray all your friends, screw the system spirit. Like a cross between Wall Street and Rules of Attraction. Great dialogue and casting.

A great movie telling the story of the development of Facebook and the many lawsuits that followed. It shows Mark Zuckerberg as both a visionary and a thoroughly unlikeable human being. Fast moving and very well acted.

Compelling peek into a slice of the life of a modern day (egocentric? back stabbing?) genius, and the dawn of the creation much of today's world revolves around. Very good film.

What is this Facebook thing? I never heard of it.

“As for any charges stemming from the breach of security, I believe I deserve some recognition from this board,” Zuckerberg on relying on placing trust in a technology paradigm as the basis for job security! ---- Listen to the techno-jabber: "Are we having scalibility problems?" "Yes." The reply, "throw money at the problem." ---- There is no solution to the problem being discussed, because at any one time (we are led to believe,) 30% of any farm is thrashing idle clock cycles. ---- The movie is cool.
