BlackBerry Unlimited screening: Unlimited members answer the call for responses

Compelling new drama BlackBerry explores the surprising history behind the world-famous hand-held device. Lucky Unlimited members got to see the movie in advance during last night's preview screening.

It’s 1996, and Mike Lazaridis (Jay Baruchel) and his business partner and best friend Douglas Fregin (Matt Johnson) are on the edge of creating the world’s first smartphone. Unfortunately for them, they are less business savvy than they are tech and struggle to keep their company, Research in Motion, afloat.  Everything changes when cunning businessman Jim Balsillie (Glenn Howerton) agrees to join the company, bringing with him the money and experience needed to create and sell a prototype of their invention.

The movie's blend of tech-savvy, topicality and quick-fire humour has had Unlimited members sending in their responses. So, what did they make of it? We've curated a few reactions.
