The film is inane but Rosario Dawson shines and her scenes are the only ones worth watching.

Looking at the synopsis, this seems pretty prophetic

If only the film's budget had approached that of its title, it may have been more watchable. Not that it's not without its indie charms, but it just feels a little sloppy and haphazardly edited.

Even though it is a known fact that this movie was a box office flop, it was surprisingly an enjoyable and inspiring watch.Sadly, it is only a one time great watch.But hey.....who said movies are to be watched over and over again.Once again, majority was a fool.

It's hard to call "The first $20 million is always the hardest" a comedy, because there's not even a little joke that works. Growing absurd with every single scene, this is easily one of the worst and pathetic nerds revenge flicks ever. The most interesting character of the movie (Rosario Dawson's Alisa) has only 10 or 15 minutes on screen and doesn't have anything to do with the main theme, what says a lot about the quality of "The first $20 million...".

An average comedy can still be unique and enjoyable when it comes with heart and sincerity. "The First $20 Million" has these redeeming virtues in spades.

Very exciting, uplifting, and inspirational film to see a group of engineers make their dreams come true in Silicon Valley right after the dot-com bubble burst--especially, now as the Valley is struggling after going through the Great Recession. A good entertainer, though some changes that couldn't have been in the novel seem tacky to make it adaptable for Hollywood. The movie gets better as it progresses.

Overall, this was an enjoyable movie. It starts out kind of slow, but as it progresses it slowly builds up speed and ultimately leads to a satisfying ending. The characters, while mostly stock, still work for the story and it was competently written. Nothing particularly special about the cinematography or directing, but it's still well done and tells the story well.
