Lay off toothpick, guys. I think I know where he’s coming from. Its not that he didn’t GET it, its just that he likes plain entertainment. Movies are a form of escapism, and I can definitely see how a movie with a cynical, nihilistic/political message such as Fight Club can be a real downer to a lot of escapists just trying to be entertained for two hours.
I love Chuck Palahniuk’s dark, satirical humor as well as Edward Norton’s dry, sarcastic delivery of Chuck’s original lines, though, so Fight Club is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.
