“ A severely underrated movie with an all star cast. It's a beautiful story of a father and son getting to know each other, but it's also a story of revenge. Once again Tom Hanks dazzles me with his talent.

“ This movie is fabulous and pertains to my generation so much. I also think that the trailer showcases it so well, sometimes I just watch it randomly. I love the tagline too (You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies). It's such a sad story, and I hope its exaggerated. I like to think Mark Zuckerberg is a nice, misunderstood guy. Besides if someone else invented facebook, they would have invented facebook! He's so right. He had the talent, and he did it. I don't blame him. I love the part at the end when that actress from the Office says, "You're not an asshole, Mark. You're just trying so hard to be." It just stuck with me. ” - CozmoQT3393
