* EveryonwHasStandards: Mark resents Sean's treatment of Eduardo [[spoiler: in the scene where Eduardo gets fired from the company.]] He is also disgusted when he hears [[spoiler: Sean was partying and doing drugs with a group of underage interns, and his reasons for (possibly) exposing him are more than just as an executive decision.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Chrissy's crazy possessiveness over Eduardo is PlayedForLaughs, with Eduardo having to juggle a phone call while she sets his gift on fire treated in a goofy light. A common occurrence in Sorkin's works, a comedy scene with the genres inverted is nigh unthinkable.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Film/FightClub''. Essentially, ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' could be interpreted as ''Fight Club'' for nerds.
** Maybe ''Film/PiratesOfSiliconValley'', too?
** The comparisons to ''Film/CitizenKane'' can also fit in that some critics noted that both films are about the tragic rise of the most powerful media mogul of their time (Kane being a [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed thinly-veiled]] version of William Randolph Hearst).

* BadassBoast: Mark gets tired of Gretchen's (Eduardo's lawyer) suggestions and shuts her up with a pretty epic one.
--> "Ma'am, I know you've done your homework and so you know that money isn't a big part of my life, but at the moment I could buy Mt. Auburn Street, take the Phoenix Club and turn it into my ping pong room."

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnReveal: During the deposition scenes, Divya mentions that after Facebook was launched, "Mark was the biggest thing on a campus that included 19 Nobel Laureates, 15 Pulitzer Prize winners, two future Olympians (the Winklevii) and a movie star." Mark's lawyer asks who the movie star was, but Divya says it doesn't matter. For those wondering, the movie star was Creator/NataliePortman.

* DoubleVision: Did you know that the Winklevoss twins were played on set by two actors (Armie Hammer as Cameron and Josh Pence as Tyler), but Hammer's face was digitally superimposed in post-production onto Pence's body, so that the twins would look exactly alike? No, you didn't. Because ''it is seamless''.
