Trivia

When the projected $50 million budget escalated to $67 million shortly after shooting began, executive producer Arnon Milchan ordered director David Fincher to cut the budget by at least $5 million. Fincher refused, saying it would damage the integrity of the film, prompting Milchan to quit the movie. However, because Milchan's company, Regency Enterprises, was providing $25 million of the budget, without him, the project could not go ahead. 20th Century Fox studio head Bill Mechanic begged Milchan to return, and began to send him dailies so as to illustrate to him the merits of the film. After three weeks of seeing raw footage from the set, Milchan returned to the film, and approved the budget increase to $67 million, upping Regency Enterprises investment to $34 million.


Quotes

Tyler Durden: Man, you've got some fucked up friends, I'm tellin' ya. Limber, though...


Goofs

After the scene in the bathroom where Tyler threatens the police chief, as the waiters are emerging into the parking lot, you see Bob's (Meat Loaf) pants fall down, briefly revealing the body suit he was wearing.


Crazy Credits

Just as the closing credits are about to start, a flash-frame-shot of a penis appears on the screen.


Alternate Versions

For the UK theatrical release of the film, the BBFC removed a total of four seconds from two scenes. In the scene where Lou (Peter Iacangelo) beats up Tyler (Brad Pitt), an overhead shot as Tyler receives a punch to the face is missing, and in the scene where The Narrator (Edward Norton) beats up Angel Face (Jared Leto), the third punch in the first load of hits, as well as several hits as his face becomes bloodied during the last load of hits have been removed. The BBFC argued that these cuts were made because of "excessively sustained violence" and "an indulgence in the excitement of beating a defenseless man's face into a pulp". Interestingly however, prior to the release of the film, the BBFC was petitioned to ban the film the film altogether, but they refused, disputing claims that it contained "dangerously instructive information" and could "encourage anti-social behavior". In fact, they actually came to the defense of the film, pointing out that "the film as a whole is - quite clearly - critical and sharply parodic of the amateur fascism which in part it portrays. Its central theme of male machismo (and the anti-social behavior that flows from it) is emphatically rejected by the central character in the concluding reels." For the 2007 Definitive Edition DVD re-release of the movie in the UK, all previous cuts were waved, and the film was released with the deleted four seconds reinstated.
