Best thing I've ever seen so I was blown away by Scott Scott has been a part of other what other committees men needed No Country for Old Men he he's he's been sort of mobile forever Somalia.
And there's Kevin Spacey involved.
Dana -- who did it with and there's all these great people who made this movie and Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay and David Fincher directed itself.

How did you come up with the idea for this -- -- just fascinated with FaceBook like we all are or did you know these how I got approached me I get an email at 2 in the morning from -- kid at Harvard he said my best friend co founded FaceBook and knowing never heard of them.

The twins had a website called the Harvard connection and dating site and they hired markets they're nerd.
Markets had some programming but kind of blew them off and they claimed -- stole their idea and they ended up suing him as well.
Got you so it was still it was the settlement was -- Settlement -- 65 million but they're not happy and they want to throw it out and they want they want everything they believe it's their idea -- Well you know -- -- great line in the movie and sort it used from a book which is you know if someone -- -- does that mean anyone who makes its share of those that -- money.
And it's that difficult question and started a there was MySpace that was Friendster.
And so it's hard to say he stole anything right what would you have done differently is there anything in the movie that does not portrayed in the -- bash her -- you know most of the book makes it's a very fair adaptation that sound -- is very close to the movie is -- network but.
I think Aaron Sorkin is a genius I mean though that dialogue is is unreal I think the opening people are just going to be blown -- I can't wait to stand and -- it's that very day I thanks so much nice to see you -- -- --
