The Social Network

Sean creates major embarrassment for Facebook and Mark when a party of his is busted by the cops for drug use and for having girls (Facebook interns) there who under 21 years old. Sean continues to own 7% of the company, but has a reduced role from then on. Mark's attorney urges him to settle the lawsuit by paying the plaintiffs, which he does. Eduardo receives an "unknown settlement" and has his name listed on Facebook as the co-founder. The three entrepreneurs receive millions and sign a non-disclosure agreement, effectively shutting them up and making them go away. This is, of course, "pocket change" to Mark, who goes on to become the world's youngest billionaire. The movie ends with Mark, looking isolated and perhaps regretful, looking up his ex-girlfriend on Facebook. She is registered and has a page on the site. We see Mark sending her a friend request, but never get to find out if she accepts the request or not.


Factual error: Near the start of the film, Mark gets a drink from the fridge and a can of Mountain Dew is visible bearing the newer logo.

Question: When Eduardo discovers the dilution of his percentage, he asks Mark if he did it because of the "article about the chicken", which accused Eduardo of forced animal cannibalism. Sean Parker hears this and says, "What's he talking about?" and then says "Seriously, what's the chicken?" Is this implying he was the one who gave the chicken story to Mark's lawyer so he could use it in the previous scene where he mentions it?

Answer: No, earlier when it came up in the lawyers office, Eduardo thought it came from Mark, but the lawyer stepped in and said they were able to find it themselves. Sean really had no idea what he was talking about, but didn't use it against him.
