About the Movie
Based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), Choke is a dark and wickedly funny joyride from the depths of sexual compulsion to the heights of the Second Coming! Beside working at a colonial reenactment theme park and trying to hook up with everything on two legs, sex addict Victor Mancini courts the love and money of complete strangers via a demented con that might just kill him. But first, Victor must save his dying, delusional mother (Angelica Houston) by seducing and impregnating her comely physician, a task easier said than done, in this gleefully twisted tale of dysfunction, salvation, love, and libido.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Choke tries to be dirty but manages merely to be dingy.
Rotten: I found it choppy, I found it dull, I found it disinteresting.
Fresh: an erotic gospel for the secular age
Fresh: For all its flaws and fumbles there is a certain guilty pleasure in Choke.
I could not stop laughing!
Not sure what the other person is talking about... this movie was spot on the book... I have never laughed so hard... the entire movie theatre was roaring. Choke is one of my favorite books, and I just knew the movie would not live up to my expectations. I was really wrong. Get this one!
I saw this and was actually very surprised at how good it was. It was very funny and if you are someone who likes to give a give finger to society sometimes for being different, then this movie is right up your ally. Very funny and Sam Rockwell gives Victor the credit her deserves. Do not miss this moive!
It doesn't follow the book exactly... The ending is completely different. Other than that it was a good time. I would like to see reviews of those who haven't read the book. I tried watching the movie from that point of view and I still can't get the ideas out of my head that were implanted by the book. Chuck Palahniuk's words are gripping, meaningful reflections on today's society... And I don't think the movie portrayed that as well as Fight Club. That is the only reason why I'm deducting a star from a perfect score.
