Well. Boys will be
I remember being intrigued about the idea behind the movie Fight Club, with Ed Norton and Brad Pitt. I'm often intrigued by, oh what to call it, the bizzarre. I watched it (on cable), and thought "this is turning out to be a pretty interesting film",
until it descended into that stupid Ed Norton beating up his alter ego crap. Had they not gone there I think it could have been a pretty good film.
I also remember thinking after seeing it "somewhere, somebody is doing this".
I suppose the charges will involve brawling on public property, possibly some conspiracy type stuff involving the sales of DVDs. I have heard a rumor that adults were involved in setting this up, we'll find out soon enough. And I guess I can see recourse for the public property stuff.
But what if they did them on private property? Crime?
I don't know.
