Wasn't that Ashton Kutcher's "serious" movie?

At the end of it I was left with the moral that it would have been better if the movie had never been made.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

It's all become one big clusterfuck of similar plot twists. "Oh dear, I seem to have been dead all along", or "so, if we're two people then which one of us is me if we exist anyway?" and plenty of variations along those lines.

Precisely why I hate the majority of the movies coming out these days.  They take the style of plot twist that worked good in Fight Club and maybe a few other earlier movies (I'm sure there may be others but I can't think off the top of my head) and have just beat it to death. 

So sure, I liked The Number 23 until about 10 minutes in when I realized "Oh hey! This movie's gonna end with the same stupid twist that every other movie is leeching off of!! Can't wait!"
There's no sun shine coming through her ass, if you are sure of your penis.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

If there is no order in your sexual life it may be difficult to stay with a whole skin.

I love how quickly the internets twist sayings...

I looked at this and was like, how is the # 23 a tarp?

OK, this actually made me chuckle aloud.

The plot twist at the end of Fight Club was blatantly inspired by Persona which was made back in 1966 I think.

The plot twist at the end of Fight Club was blatantly inspired by every other suspense movie ever made.

"No, Edward. You are Tyler Durden"
And then Edward was a zombie.

The difference in Fight Club is that it wasn't obvious 1/4 through the movie.

I didn't mean it in a bad way. It just seemed obvious to me, and I think it was done on purpose maybe.

Edit, because I think I misread your post due to the imaginary tone of voice in my head. Yay.

I haven't seen every other suspense movie ever made.
