Last night I finally got around to watching…

…that movie about Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, the movie called “The Social Network.” I found it eerily dull.

It’a “Animal House” for nascent billionaires; it’s Harvard jargon, almost hot, almost but never quite sex, and lawsuits. And a lot of techie mumbo-jumbo (coding! coding!). I’m a little techie myself and already knew the broad outlines of the story and even then I could’t understand it, or much care.

Full disclosure: I don’t do Facebook, nor plan to.

“The Social Network” gets the standard-issue 7.7 stars on IMDB.  I think their star machine is broke.
