Choke is a movie directed by Clark Gregg based on a novel by Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club.  Choke is exactly like Fight Club except the main character works at a historical theme park instead of an office.  And rather than visit support groups for ailments he doesn’t have, the main character Victor attends sexual addiction meetings that he does need.  So imagine Fight Club with a sex addicted historical theme park worker with a best friend instead of a split personality.

The movie isn’t really as bad as that makes it sound.  And the main character isn’t mad at the world like Tyler Durden, he is just mad at his mother. I might not watch this movie a second time, but I also didn’t find Sam Rockwell annoying.  So it is win win.
