Anything adapted from chuck should never be afraid to go to the edge as much as his books do. You already know what you're getting into, so just do it.

I would rather see them make Survivor into a movie but this isn't a bad start... go go more Palahniuk books becoming movies.

Funny and perversely smart. Choke finds the humor in disease... much like myself. There's heart, there's laughs... it's a decent watch.

"Choke" is a very dark comedy starring Sam Rockwell. This film takes risks and is very unusual in a good sense. Rockwell portrays Victor Mancini, a sex addict who works at a living history museum, cons people in his free time by pretending to choke to gain their sympathy and during the film tries to uncover the truth about his birth. There is plenty to laugh at in this film, yet there is also a substantial amount of drama. "Choke" shouldn't be pigeonholed into one specific genre, it is it's own thing.

Sam Rockwell gives a great performance as always and the entire supporting cast is very fitting. "Choke" is borderline insane, but that's a positive thing.

Sam is doing his very best but the script had other ideas. Not as sexy or crazy as this sex-crazed story should have been.

I hated Fight Cub, but found this to be much more thoughtful without the overwhelming amount testosterone. I thought it swayed back and forth between sincere and hostile, but that is the whole point. It isn't just some raunchy sex movie.

Although the pacing is disastrous and the amateur fade-to-white flashback is overused Sam Rockwell plays his part as best he can an keeps interest going. Comedic timing isn't perfect throughout some of the jokes are truly memorable.

From the author of Fight Club, Choke is a bizarre and funny movie. Rockwell's performance as always delivers in this strange tale of sex addiction and life. I found the movie to be entertaining, but there are at times the movie isn't as engaging or amusing. I think the childhood scenes should of been more developed to tie more to the story. But for what it's worth, a bizarre and funny movie.

Choke is loyal to it's source material and Rockwell is his usual electrifying self, but it's missing the emotion, dark comedy and insight of Palahniuk's book.

A sex addict works in a dead end job, cons people in restaurants pretending to be "choking" and visits his mother in her care home.
Theres alot of sex a few laughs and for a while its mildly amusing.

1999's Fight Club Is One Of My Favorite Films.

Good indie film. The director somehow was able to take a crazy idea and something that could have been a very bad movie and make it entertaining.

Well, this movie doesn!t give you much but Angelica Huston's performance is worth seeing, I loved her in this movie however, I found the movie somewhat vulgar and mostly average.

Semi-grappige film, zat meer in, ideaal voor een luie zondagavond ;-)

A comedy drama about human insecurities and where we find comfort through strange things, kidnapping a child, dating a customer, having sex with a fellow sex addict. With a lack of real climax at the end nor any specific memorable moment, this is a movie about nothing as much as about something. Choke is packaged in a light Hollywood style drama comedy with a deeper substance if you care to digest.

Looks Funny in a dark F'd up way.
