And when it comes to that bottom button, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter should’ve taken the advice of that other eighties-era Hollywood fixture, Frankie. As in: Relax, don’t do it. Please don’t take this too hard, Aaron, you’re normally a reasonably dapper guy. The dude who wrote The Social Network is allowed a sartorial Studio 60 moment now and again.
