The Narrator (Edward Norton) is an office worker with insomnia who has grown tired of his life and decides he is ready to look for something different. On a plane ride, he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) who is a soap manufacturer and salesman. Upon returning home, his apartment has apparently blown up from a gas leak, causing him to lose everything and turn to Tyler for help, a man he has only just met and barely knows. The two start hanging out and eventually start an underground fight club that evolves into something more dangerous and illegal that he could ever imagine.
The movie starts off with what you would expect to see at a fight club. A bunch of dudes fighting each other for what I am assuming to be fun?

Liked Its & Hated Its
I hated the fighting, the way everyone treated each other, and that nasty house (pretty weird for someone to have a house like that even though he makes soap?).

I hated when he shot himself in the head - can anyone tell me how he survived that? Was he just pretending to shoot himself in the head to get rid of Tyler?
I liked the plot twist and I liked the end explosions of the buildings.
