What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fight Club is the 1999 movie based on the Chuck Palahniuk novel in which Edward Norton plays an insomniac office worker who meets his masculine ideal opposite with whom he begins to get in touch with his primal self as well as a desire to sabotage consumer culture. Impressionable kids and teens are likely to miss the dark satire while witnessing numerous examples of graphic beatings, vandalism, shootings, and bombings. The overall cloud of nihilism permeating this movie, the lead character's attempts to place subliminal one-frame shots of pornography in family movies in a theater where he works as a projectionist, scenes in which characters who work in restaurants urinate in food, a scene in which the female lead, after engaging in loud and passionate sex, says, "I haven't been f--ked like that since grade school," as well as the aforementioned graphic violence, make this best for audiences mature enough to see the film's deeper messages on the ways in which consumer culture warps our individuality and self esteem. There's also frequent profanity, nudity, smoking, and drinking.
