THE SOCIAL NETWORK

We saw the “The Social Network” at 1 pm today. This is the first time we’ve seen a movie on the day it came out. Joy pushed Bob to see it. We would have seen it at 11 am if we were early risers. Bob thought it was one of the best movies he’d ever seen. Joy was totally gripped. What’s so exciting is that it reminds us of the 1980s when college-age kids like Bill Gates were doing big stuff. We were totally excited at the time. Huge things were happening.

Facebook is huge and getting huger. The movie draws you in from the get-go.

Opening scene: Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg’s girlfriend is breaking up with him. A relationship with you she says, is like dating a stairmaster –totally exhausting.

That’s just what the movie isn’t. It’s exhilarating.
