The subject of this supposedly true story is in his late 20s, and obviously making an analysis of his life as it is now would make little sense, so The Social Network uses him solely as an icon to get across its messages. However, while the movie does a great job conveying these messages, they aren’t actually what the movie should have been about. Instead of addressing the current issues indicated by the title, it just uses timeless messages and didacticism so it can be praised by stodgy film critics. And that’s kind of lame.

If someone told you that there was a Goof Troop movie, would you expect much more than a made-for-TV cash-in? Surprisingly, this movie is more than that. Yeah, it’s a goofy cartoon (get it?) with tons of slapstick, but it never forgets to include the undercurrent of drama required to maintain your attention for the running time.
