Aaron Sorkin Recycled Dialogue Supercut: 7 Minutes Of Sorkinisms (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

If you call yourself an Aaron Sorkin fan, you're going to love this 'Sorkinisms' supercut. Unfortunately, you may also hate it.

The reason for the mixed emotions is because this seven-minute masterclass in Sorkinese - that's right, seven whole minutes - reveals just how much the Oscar-winning writer of The Social Network, The West Wing and, um, Charlie Wilson's War uses the writing technique known as "Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V".

Of course, he doesn't actually copy and paste phrases like "Eyes front, mister!" or "As a great man once said...", but it's fascinating to learn that Mr. Sorkin has these same thoughts and words circling about his brain as he types away at his computer.

After all, if it ain't broke, don't fix it - though the reviews for his latest TV effort, The Newsroom, suggest he may want to fix it a little bit...

P.S. Wondering which shows and films YouTuber DrFunky17 used for this monster mash-up? Well, wonder no more...

  • Malice
  • A Few Good Men
  • Bulworth
  • The American President
  • Sports Night
  • The West Wing
  • Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip
  • Charlie Wilson's War
  • The Social Network
