24 Hours on Craigslist (2004)
Movie InfoA camera crew sets out to document a day in the life of one of the Web's most popular message boards in this eclectic documentary. 24 Hours on Craigslist seeks to dissect the enduring appeal of craigslist.org, a simple, text-based, free-of-charge posting service that internet surfers use to sell goods, find soulmates, and recruit employees/colleagues/collaborators.

Critic Reviews for 24 Hours on Craigslist
Intermittently amusing, rarely illuminating and ultimately tedious documentary.
It plays too much like a paid ad. Everybody interviewed had a positive experience. But what about those who didn't?
Personalities are as engaging as they are diverse, while zippy, well-photographed package is never dull.
The disorganized documentary 24 Hours on Craigslist is primarily a stroll through human desire as manifested on the popular Internet site Craigslist.org.
A fun and free-form celebration of the site's communal spirit and only-in-San Francisco ethos.
The flick itself gets a B-, but the DVD is grade-A impressive all the way.
As a way of saying 'people sure are wacky,' Gibson's movie succeeds, although it goes on a bit long.
