Its absolutely ok if watch it, if you can tolerate some blood. Of course if you want to watch it for the "other" adult content, you would be disappointed

Watched "FIGHTCLUB" and GODS MUST BE CRAZY part 2".

Fightclub stars Brad Pitt and Edward Norton (from The Italian Job fame). Wait till the end of the movie. All the scenes will fall in place. Till then you will feel it is a bit of place. A good watch.

Rating 3.5/5

Gods must be crazy part 2 - Not as hilarious as the first part. Worth a watch.

Rating 2.5/5

Saying "Ed Norton of Italian Job fame stars in Fight Club" is like saying "Amitabh Bachchan of Shehanshah fame stars in Sholay" - this is both in terms of timeline & quality.

What exactly is "adult" about it? I'm not an adult, but is it OK if I watch it?
There are no sexually explicit scenes, but there is a mind and soul twisting scene when he tries to cut his own arm with a blunt knife. If you are not an adult, this scene could be damaging to your mental growth, i would avoid it if i were you.

@Arkin evoisrevo: I haven't watched it, but I know what it's about. And now, even you do.

Your profile says you are a Std. 10 student with your board exams round the corner.
Hence I would strongly suggest you don't watch it.
I completely agree with esteem_lover.

Today is Groundhog day! Time to remember the finest Bill Murry movie...

Bill Murray keeps living the same day, today, everyday.

The best dialogue I liked: "This is a man we are talking about, right?"

Saw "Thank you for smoking" now!
A movie about a lobbyist for the tobaco industry who takes on the bureaucrats and media with his excellent ability with words!
A pretty good watch!

In my opinion, Bill Murray's best movie is "What about Bob?" - none of his other movies even comes close to it in terms of laughs. A lot of it was copied by David Dhawan in "Deewana Mastana". Govinda's character was based on Bill Murray's Bob in "What about Bob?".
