Music maniac, wanabe musician, Delphi addict.

Delphi is hobby, but quite a serious one I might add. I sincerely like being helpful, and answering questions and come up with solutions are also a kind of nice training for me.

Some of my special interests are: graphics / drawing, component building, and VCL knowledge.

I'm in utter consent with you about Sorkin's remarkable achievement. But now that is meant funny because of it? -1

comment How would you categorise Shutter Island?
I think Surprise Twist is an answer OP was in search of, so that's kind of hard to fead to a search engine.

comment What is rosebud?
+1 For answering a tripple question with this single post: What is rose bud?, Does it have significance? and Why?

I also think you hit the nail by saying it's not only humorous. If a writer sees the opportunity to put something in that might be experienced as funny then he sure will, provided it fits. But like you say yourself: the film is no comedy, and even so isn't the opening scene.

I suspect the StairMaster joke was not Sorkin's contribution, but the advertiser's/invester's. But that put aside, both examples you gave I experience as being dead-serious; I simply like to empathize with characters and both are clearly not intended being funny by them. But like I said, that's just personal taste. Now, in comparison to The Office: that certainly is with no doubt intended to be funny, although some might not find it so.

comment Kid's pictures in Clint Eastwood's True Crime (1999)
+1 Sounds like a great question! I must show it again before being able to answer, but I dó remember the magnificent end titles song by Diana Krall.

comment Mark's development of character in Operating Systems
I think the scene is also about: (2) Showing Mark goes his own way when he leaves the room to spend his time on more important things, and (3) Mark realizing that such notes should be able to spread on The Facebook too. But besides all that, I don't think this is what is being asked by OP.
