this movie about the creation of the phenomenon Facebook and the aftermath is one well crafted and compelling movie.David Fincher directed it and Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay.s.it's not hard to tell Sorkin had a hand din it.the dialogue just pops.the acting is superb all around.the main characters are well drawn.Jesse Eisenberg plays Zuckerberg,and it's hard not to feel some degree of empathy for the character,though i wouldn't exactly call him sympathetic.Andrew Garfield plays Eduardo Saverin,a co-founder of Facebook.but it's Justin Timberlake who i found really impressive as Sean Parker,founder of Napster.he plays a totally unlikable character and pulls it off perfectly.i would highly recommend this film.for me,The Social Network is a 4/5

One of those rare movies that you can actually watch multiple times and enjoy it more each time. The pace is so fast it really needs watching twice to grasp all that's going on. Well cast, well written, superbly directed - even Justin Timberlake is great to watch in this movie. And holding it all together is the genius music of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross - certainly deserving of an Oscar.

Unusual to find an Oscar nominee in trouble with us, but this had to be the most boring movie that we have seen in a long time. Probably OK if you are heavy into the high tech world.

A terribly boring film that has people that are shallow, vulgar and without a shred of morality or ethics. The writing is not great and the performances are pedestrian. Perhaps that they should have added a footnote how Facebook also is continually trying to sell people's personal information to third parties, allow free large corporate advertising on people's account (with the consent of the account holder, but without any monetary transfers for having this advertising) and how the design of the web page is so poor that it looks like an old Windows program. Perhaps they should add an alternative title of: "Perverts and Stalkers-Here's Free Information For You". This movie leaves me with the question: "Has Harvard lowered it's standards to let people like these to attend their institution?"

This film is one of the youthful films following wizkids and the in's and out's of college parties as they happened,and then along came two people with brains and some compition and all lawers . Its a great tribute to facebook and its batteling through the legal loop holes in the early days agaisnt different ideas when the company was growing and the hardvard brothers who to this day are fighting over money on the shares .. what are they like !..

IT'S A MUST TO HAVE ON YOUR SHELVE !

Had great expectations for this film, but was underwhelmed. It just seemed to drag and I'd call it overall flat. Don't understand all the Oscar hype. Watching the additional features it's apparent that the screenwriter has a very good opinion of himself. Just didn't care about the characters. I really like the directors other films, however I found that my attention wandered on this flick.

I''ve seen this type of film before. Smart, arrogant young man creates something new that he allegedly stole from someone else. Yeah, yeah seen it done before. There wasn't one major character in the film I liked. I thought they were all greedy, backstabbing, hateful people, and if that's what it takes to make a lot of dough then I'd rather not.

Over all the film was a boring study on dislikable people. I'm so glad it didn't win the Oscar. it definitely didn't deserve it.

I had to add another 5 star review because someone only gave it 3 stars because they found it for 6 cents less at Wal-Mart...

It's a great movie and whether or not it is 100% accurate to the true story of how Facebook was created it was very entertaining.

Talk about delayed response: this movie has been on my to-watch list since early last year, and I only got around to watching it this week when Mark Zuckerberg finally took Facebook public. Though "The Social Network" attempts to set this amazing story of how the digital form of social networking went viral in the irrepressibly zany atmosphere of Harvard fraternity life, it is so much more than just another "Animal House" spoof with an improbable ending. Strip away the sophomoric dimensions of campus living where individual exploits are often larger than life - from brains to looks to sex - and we have a very colourful tale of how friendships were made and broken in an enterprise meant to bring people together in the largest social context possible. There are some complications along the way before this idea started to become a reality. Only when Zuckerberg and his partners go through the maze of legal challenges does art start to imitate life. The audience gets to see a young Zuckerberg's vision mature from a limited, self-serving means for ranking dates to a cooperative, commercial venture meant to revolutionize the world. Along with Zuckerberg's learning curve goes some humorous moments when irony creatively jolts the senses. The scene in President Larry Summer's office is one example of how the academic establishment surprisingly weighed in on the whole hot-button issue of how to define intellectual property. I found the parallel story format that looks at both the genesis of the idea and its fallout to be a very useful comparative device that brought much-needed cinematic discipline to a production that could have easily derailed with all its character intersections.
