Seems to be the Consensus

I was gonna let the dead horse lie for a while and not post this from Time Out New York, but then I got that comment telling me to "calm down" since it’s "only" a play…

The big picture that results, however, is curiously fuzzy. The frank unreliability of both men’s narration provides cover for significant liberties that Sorkin has taken with history, ranging from the trivial (an urban legend about the first moon landing) to the pivotal (the climactic outcome of the patent dispute at the center of the play). Such documentary fudging might be forgivable if the play had anything else to offer..

The review is accompanied by three out of six stars.
