The Social Network Review

The Facebook movie, The Social Network, hit theatres this weekend and it came out on top of the box office!

Starring Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, sexy sexy Andrew Garfield as former Facebook CFO Eduardo Saverin, and Justin Timberlake as Napster inventor Sean Parker, the film was chalk full of talent.

Director David Fincher is not too shabby himself. He managed to construct a film which combined all aspects of the Facebook journey- nerds, backstabbing, celebrities, lawsuits, and an evident passion for internet technology.

Eisenberg pulled off the indifferent and angry Zuckerberg- but really, how would you feel if you were sued by your best friend?

But the real diamond in this cast was newcomer Andrew Garfield. He’s been in British films such as Never Let Me Go (with Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley- in theatres now) as well as The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Colin Farrell, and the late Heath Ledger). He was heartbreakingly handsome, emotionally invested, as well as hilarious in the film. He’s also the new Spiderman, cast opposite Emma Stone as the new Mary Jane. Love it!

JT threw us back to the past with his hipster vibe and cool-90’s style. He almost looked like a very ‘NSYNC Justin Timberlake. Weird? But satisfying. But careful, yo. He is CRAZY in this movie. Insane.

Also starring in the film was Armie Hammer, playing both of the Winklevoss twins. Favorite quips about the twins? When Eisenberg refers to them as the “Winklevi” and when Cameron exclaims, “I’m 6’5″, 230 pounds, and there’s two of me!”.

Overall, this movie was a hit. It really captured the essence of a phenomenon like Facebook from start to present.

If nothing else, you can enjoy staring at Andrew Garfield’s skinny-guy hotness.
