Movie Info

A 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. From 121 postings made on August 4, 2003, filmmaker Michael Ferris Gibson charted random San Francisco denizens ranging from the ordinary to the outrageous: Apartment-dwellers seeking roommates; a drag perfomer searching for musicians; a would-be mom looking for the right sperm donor; hedonists looking for sex partners; an engaged couple seeking a rabbi to perform their wedding ceremony.

Critic Reviews for 24 Hours on Craigslist

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

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 diverting infomercial.

A fun and free-form celebration of the site's communal spirit and only-in-San Francisco ethos.
