During one of the depositions, it is mentioned that the invention of Facebook made Mark Zuckerberg "the biggest thing on a campus that included nineteen Nobel Laureates, fifteen Pulitzer Prize winners, two future Olympians, and a movie star." One of the lawyers then asks, "Who was the movie star?" and the response is, "Does it matter?" This movie star was, in fact, Natalie Portman, who was enrolled at Harvard from 1999 to 2003 and helped screenwriter Aaron Sorkin by providing him insider information about goings-on at Harvard at the time Facebook first appeared there.

Did you know there are more people with genius IQs living in China than there are people of any kind living in the United States?
That can't possibly be true.
What would account for that?
Well first, an awful lot of people live in China. But, here's my question: how do you distinguish yourself in a population of people who all got 1600 on their SATs?
I didn't know they take SATs in China.
They don't. I wasn't talking about China anymore, I was talking about me.

Here we have Jesse Eisenberg whose rendering of genius is to talk really fast in hurried, clipped vocalizations. Fine. You know what, it's better than Matt Damon saying, "How do you like them Apples?" So Jesse Eisenberg's acting is annoying. But that alone only warrants going down to a 6 or 7, how have we gone down to a 1? Because, this movie goes beyond being overrated. It's not just overrated, it's something like ordering a $100 dessert at the best restaurant in America and being served an empty dish save for a solitary blue skittle on it... And all this after reading in the NYT that this restaurant had the best desserts in NYC. I think any half-wit could see what is really going on. This pile of junk is being promoted by the mass media for some godforsaken reason that speculating upon would have me labeled a paranoid schizophrenic.
So I won't speculate on why the media fawned over this strangely moronic film as if it somehow foretold the second coming of Christ. What I will say is that this movie is disingenuous crap that is filled with clichés, racial stereotypes, bigotry, and elaborately staged scenes of sheer human idiocy surpassed only by Jackass 3.5.
This movie warranted more than a 1, it's really a reaction to the hype, the hype which is absurd at best, and criminal at worst.
It's actually quite funny, the way all absurdly overblown Hollywood movies are.
