It was a strange film.. takes a while to understand "what is this guy doing?" Best to watch it twice.. It is hillarious (watching from the outside, of course) how Mark had people, esp. FBI running in circles... Mark is full of surprises and much imagination and intelligence..Bizarre man!

The plot is so outlandish that it is hard to believe that it is a true story. Matt Damon does an amazing job

My wife loved it. I fell asleep about 20 minutes in. Must be a good watch, but it takes decades to do and the dialogue is deadly bad. This must be one of those "I needed to do a movie and fill my contract and I have 15 days to start filming!!" movies.

What will Whitacre do next (in the movie)? I found the movie amusing and Matt Damon did a great job! (as always).

I thought this was a great movie. Well played. Not overly Hollywoodized

With the continual background music and the rambling thoughts of the main character, it was bound to happen…I fell asleep! I believe the premise of this movie was good but unfortunately, its delivery was not the best.

Mark Whitacre: [voiceover] You know that orange juice you have every morning? You know what's in that? Corn. And you know what's in the maple syrup you put on your pancakes? You know what makes it taste so good? Corn. And when you're good and help with the trash, you know what makes the big, green bags biodegradable? Mark Whitacre: [to his son] Do you? Alexander Whitacre: Uh-huh. Corn. Mark Whitacre: Corn *starch*. But Daddy's company didn't come up with that one. DuPont did.
