The Social Network
On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history, but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. MPAA rating: PG-13; for sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and language.

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!

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.

Pretty lame... most over-rated movie in many years.

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.
