The disappointed Fight Club fans:

• First rule about the Chanel ad, we don't talk about the Chanel ad. -- doopadoodoo

• Hi Tyler !!! you say : "We're consumers. We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don't concern me.

• I Feel like tyler durden wants to break free and have a rant but he cant and Pitt composes himself towards the end!! Obinna Springer-Williams

There are well over 50 pages of comments. If you want to torment yourself for a little while, head over and scroll through. But we think "doopadoodoo" wins best comment.
