Honest Trailers – Fight Club

Honest Trailers – Fight Club

Based on the book by Chuck Pala–
I’m not gonna pronounce that.
Comes the film that inspired an entire generation
… Of college dorm room posters.
Fight Club.
We’re totally about to break the first rule,
aren’t we?
Meet Tyler Durden —
I mean “Jack,” or whatever.
He’s a normal guy with a steady job, nice
condo, and plenty of free time…
Which in the late 90’s, meant something was
horribly wrong with your life.
Everything will change when Jack creates the
impossibly cool alter ego of Tyler Durden,
a porn splicing, soup pissing, soap making
who’s basically the Che Guevara of imaginary
Follow Jack/Tyler on their quest to save us
from all of our first world problems.
“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes,
working jobs we hate so we can buy sh*t we
don’t need.”
As they tear down our society of mindless
consumer slaves
By building a society of mindless actual slaves.
“Like a monkey ready to be shot into space.”
But since he’s so hot, barely anyone will
realize he’s a total hypocrite.
Enter their secret underground world of fight
The only place for modern men to release their
violent urges
Except for boxing,
mixed martial arts,
gun ranges,
action movies,
video games,
mosh pits,
hardcore hip-hop,
and war.
Strip down and join in their out of control
punch fests
And their anarchy obsessed terrorist group
Where the only thing they love more than violence
and chaos
is following the rules.
“The first rule of Fight Club is you do not
talk about Fight Club.”
“Sir, the first rule of Project Mayhem is
you do not ask questions, sir.”
“The second rule of Fight Club”
“The third rule of Fight Club”
“Fourth rule”
“Fifth rule”
“Sixth rule”
“Seventh rule”
“The first rule of Project Mayhem”
“Sir, the first rule of Project Mayhem”
“The first rule of Project Mayhem”
Take a break from all the sweaty guy-on-guy
action to experience some of your OTHER repressed
fantasies, like…
threatening your boss,
blowing up buildings,
sticking your d*ck in crazy,
punching Jared Leto in the face,
and littering…
Lots and lots of littering.
Take THAT, society!
Then, prepare yourself for a twist ending
we all should have seen coming…
“We’re the same person?”
“That’s right.”
where the movie does everything it can to
show you that Tyler isn’t real.
“We have the exact same briefcase.”
“Sometimes Tyler spoke for me.”
“For some reason, I thought of my first fight
with Tyler.”
“Who are you talking to?”
“Shut up.”
“This conversation –“
“Is over.”
“– is over.”
But nothing to explain why shooting yourself
in the face gets rid of him.
“Are you alright, sir?”
“Oh, yeah, I’m ok.”
Are you, though?
So revisit this high-budget Hollywood movie
with an anti-capitalist message, yet features
tons of product placement,
a spin-off PlayStation game,
a graphic novel sequel,
two collector’s editions.
and, of course, officially licensed soap.
I am Jack’s missing sense of irony.
Brad’s Pit ts
Stop Hitting Yourself, Stop Hitting Yourself
The Corpse Bride
Dallas Fighters Club
and Happy Feet.
Fight Club
“With your feet in the air and your head on
the ground”
Like this video if you downloaded this Pixies
song off Napster.

100 thoughts on “Honest Trailers – Fight Club”

  1. I didn’t see this movie until maybe a week ago and while I liked it more or less, I feel like I would’ve more if everyone didn’t spoil it. Although I do have the weird urge to watch this with my sister who’s barely even heard of it just to see her reactions

  2. Τhis movie is more like a searing critique on capitalistic mayhem and dominance and a comment on excessive use of violence and hyper – masculine stereotypes , which wrongly uses the same excessive use of violence it tried to critique .

  3. Good will hunting! This vid is currently the top result for that search: I believe in y’all’s power to correct that quickly!

  4. "Sticking your dick in crazy" So glad you brought that one up. Never underestimate the pleasures of crazy… but never forget the price

  5. There is so many clues throughout that Tyley isn't real did anyone catch the payphone scene the stickers on it say
    this phone does not accept incoming calls!

  6. Fight club anticipated 9/11.Sure the terrorists in the movie are not Al Qaeda but the same kind of alienation from western society is present in both.That alone means this movie deserves praise for anticipating issues which would become dominant in the next 20 years.

  7. The message I see in the movie is just basically live you life to the fullest. Men who are bored or fed up with their life simply need to man up find out what's missing in their life. If you're single and lonely then go find a nice girlfriend. If you're a closet homosexual then open up to yourself and go get yourself a piece of man ass. Get a hobby. Visit your grandma. Volunteer for those less fortunate than you. You're alive so that in itself means you have meaning and purpose.

  8. The film was well aware of the irony in its product placement. That’s why it has a Starbucks cup in literally every scene. People forget that the film is a parody, but the best parody’s always get taken seriously so 🤷‍♂️

  9. "It's Morphine Time?!" How did someone know about that get well card that a school mate wrote to me as a kid. Next thing he's going to say is, "We need Shotgun Megazord power, now!" Instead of Shogun Megazord.

  10. You done fucked up honest trailers, I love your content but you shouldnt have tried to touch this one. What this movie means cant be torn down by your brand of humor, you shouldnt have tried to go there.

  11. the problem with your statement at 1:25 is that all of those things STARTED out as a primal release but were made into products to profit off of that need we fill, war being the worst one where we die for some old mans greed.

  12. Haha I did my master's thesis in political science on this very theme. Great job picking it up since no one else did.

  13. Did a search for minority report and this video popped up first. YouTube society desperately needs an honest trailer for minority report. My opinion has been stated. Do with it what you will.

  14. OK I CONFESS I DOWNLOADED THIS OFF NAPSTER 19 YEARS AGO DURING MY FIRST YEAR OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL. GESUS IM OLD. P.S. I truly miss the dorm days watching FC, jackass, rounders, office space, and snatch. Early 2000s were awesome now I just work all the time and pay bill's between single serving interactions with actual humans.
