Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Despite solid performances and witty dialogue, Choke never gets us into Victor's skin. We can piece together all the clues and understand intellectually why he is the way he is, but we don't feel it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The film makes a flywheel kind of progress toward its conclusion, feeling like it has arrived not at a resolution but at a rest stop.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average There is some clever dialogue as well as a few ludicrously funny situations, but the movie feels too broad and disjointed to be truly absurdist fun.

Note: The rating above is our interpretation of what the critic would give this movie based on their review. We are not affiliated with these critic's in any way.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Victor (Sam Rockwell), in an effort to pay for his once radical, now demented mother's (Anjelica Huston) expensive care in a private hospital, engages in a brazen scam. While dining in upscale restaurants, he deliberately chokes on his food, allowing himself to be "saved” by good Samaritans who grow so close to him in the wake of their heroic Heimlich Maneuvers, they lavish him with checks. His day job is no more conventional: he portrays an indentured Irish servant in full 18th Century garb at a historical theme park. And when he isn't busy being a put upon Pilgrim, gagging violently or visiting the mother who doesn't recognize him, Victor is attending sexaholic recovery meetings (or having forbidden encounters in the meeting hall bathroom.)

It's no wonder Victor feels adrift. But when his declining mother hints that she might be ready to spill the secret identity of his long lost father, Victor hopes it can finally provide the answers he has been searching for. With the help of his fellow sex addict Denny (Brad William Henke), Victor befriends his mother's alluring young physician (Kelly Macdonald), who leads him to believe his origins may be far more shockingly divine than he ever could have imagined. So is Victor Mancini still the no-good loser he has always thought he would be for the rest of his life or could he possibly be . . . some crazy kind of savior?
