    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    An annoying little film that attempts to be lascivious but is merely ludicrous. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Yes, it's not for the squeamish or easily offended, but its sordidness is more superficially shocking than wickedly satirical. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    While Choke, adapted for the screen and directed by Clark Gregg, is by no means a disaster, it is disappointing - and oddly dull. show more

    James Greenberg The Hollywood Reporter

    For much of the way, the film just feels like it's pressing too hard to make an impression. show more

    While the movie will definitely not be to everyone's taste, black-hearted romantics will find Choke easy to swallow. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Some stretches are very funny, although the laughter is undermined by the desperation and sadness of the situations. show more

    Fine performances from Sam Rockwell and Brad William Henke deserve some passing attention. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The movie veers with surprising ease between comedy and tragedy. Some scenes are hilarious; others are somber. show more

    Disappointing not for what it is but what it could have been. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Maybe this stuff works on the page, in Chuck Palahniuk's darkly comic novel, but Choke is awfully tough to digest on the screen. show more

    We all know the infamous Chuck Palahniuk, and still religiously quote Fight Club. Now we can enjoy yet another transgressional fiction tale of a sex-addicted man who seems to be way in over his head. With a talented cast and a good blend of drama and comedy, Choke is successfully an enjoyable movie you don't want to miss.
