    Instant classic. Already one of my all time faves.

    Question: If you saw it, who were you "rooting" for? No matter how much they portrayed Zuckerberg as a scheming insensitive jerk, I still found myself identifying with him more than anyone else, save for perhaps Eduardo.

    Very good film. And very nicely directed, the script could easily have been a borefest with another director.

    But what are the options? I can't remember anybody else who was portrayed in a good light and the film makes him seem in the right in everything except when he accepts to screw Eduardo.

    I still don't get what's the appeal of the movie, to be honest.

    And the ending was so clichéd I wanted to barf my popcorn.

    I thought the movie was geared towards making the viewer sympathize with the Winkelvoss twins and Narendra. I thought it portrayed them in a much more favorable light than it did Zuckerberg.

    That's weird.

    2 thirds though it (paused for crumpets) and I love the film so far. The Harvard twins are saps and imo they needed a top end programer and completely underestimated Zuc who only partied with them to palm them off - awesome. "Ideas" are NOT intelectual property.

    FFS. Just came back to the film and the HD box is playing up again so had to bin it! God I hate sky so much.

    A fair film. Not one of the top 10 of 2010 by any stretch.

    I couldn't identify with any of the characters. A self indulgant bore for the most part but the editing saved the day.
