DURING THE MOVIE:
1. Who are the 5 most important characters in the film? Also list the names 5 of the actors playing these characters.

2. What is this story about?

In 2003, Harvard junior Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) was inspired to create “TheFacebook.com,” a site where Harvard students could interact with each other. Along with his best friend Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), who funded the venture, the site launches to huge success and continues to grow until the entry of Napster innovator Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) and then everything begins to unravel.

3. What group of people would like this movie (demographics)?

Any person that uses facebook, so probably ages 14-to late 20’s earlier 30’s.

AFTER THE MOVIE:
4. Did you like this movie? Why or why not?

I did like this movie, it was interesting to see how the process of facebook how it was made and the troubles behind it. I know that it was different because its a hollywood movie so they always amp up what the real story was. It still seems like it would suck to be Mark.

5. What rating would you give this movie?

3 and a half stars out of 5

6. What spoilers might ruin the movie for viewers if you told them about it?

The Winklevoss Twins were part of the lawsuit. It was a suit being filed between Zuckerberg and Eduardo, and Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss.

7. All movies teach a lesson (theme/moral). What did you learn from this one?

This lesson from the movie comes, not from what the fictional Zuckerberg did correctly, but what he did wrong.  Now I can’t speak to the character or the personality of the real Zuckerberg because I have never met him, nor have I done much research on him.  He could totally be a super nice guy in “real life”.  Only he and those closest to him know that.  All I know is I’m glad he invented facebook.  ;-) The fictional Zuckerberg, however, was a complete sell out when it came to relationships and well….frankly, he screwed over just about everybody who crossed his path.   The movie portrays him as a guy with no “real friends” left at the end of the day.  (that’s not a spoiler either).  So, this leads me to my last and final take away from the movie – keep your priorities in line. Your friends, your family, your relationships with those who love and care about you should always, always, always, take precedence over your ambitions.You can have billions upon billions of dollars but if you don’t have the peace, joy, and satisfaction that comes from doing the right thing and keeping relationships first, then it’s all in vain.

8. What title would you give your review (and can you think of a pun that might work for it)?

fun fact:

Facebook’s Engineer, Chris Putnam was hired in 2006 after he hacked into Facebook and changed all the profiles to look like MySpace. He is also an Easter egg (an unofficial piece of fun code) as an emoticon in Facebook Chat with the code being – :putnam (the colon symbol and his last name), once entered Putnam’s face will appear.
