You are not your job. You are not how much you have in the bank. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your khakis. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. What happens first is you can't sleep. What happens then is there's a gun in your mouth. And what happens next is you meet Tyler Durden. Let me tell you about Tyler. He had a plan. In Tyler we trusted. Tyler says the things you own, end up owning you. It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything. Fight Club represents that kind of freedom. First rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Tyler says self-improvement is masturbation. Tyler says self-destruction might be the answer.

Paul Edgecomb's tour of duty as the head guard on Death Row at Cold Mountain in the Depression-era South included watch over a quartet of killers awaiting their final walk down "the Green Mile," the stretch of green linoleum flooring that took convicts from their jail cells to the electric chair.
Over the years, Edgecomb walked the mile with a variety of cons. He had never before encountered someone like John Coffey, a massive black man convicted of brutally killing a pair of nine-year-old sisters. Coffey certainly had the size and strength to kill anyone, but his demeanor starkly contrasted with his appearance. Beyond his simple, naive nature and a deathly fear of the dark, Coffey seemed to possess a prodigious, supernatural gift. Edgecomb began to question whether Coffey was truly guilty of murdering the two girls.

Even his roommate and old law school buddy, Kevin (Jon Stewart), is joining the ranks of the grown-ups by proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Corinne (Leslie Mann), who's eternally at odds with Sonny and whose former life as a Hooters waitress is always good for a chuckle. The only people who appreciate Sonny's unique outlook on life are Corinne's beautiful sister, Layla (Joey Lauren Adams), a hard-working attorney, and Sonny's longtime take-out food delivery guy (Rob Schneider), who's practically achieved the status of a third roommate.
In a misguided attempt to impress his girlfriend, Vanessa (Kristy Swanson), and prove he's ready for responsibility, Sonny adopts a five-year old boy, Julian (Cole and Dylan Sprouse), under the false pretense of being his biological father. When the plan doesn't work out and Vanessa leaves him anyway, Sonny tries to "return" the kid to Social Services.

But the ruse eventually catches up with him when Social Services discovers he isn't Julian's real father. In an attempt to keep the boy he has grown to love and make their relationship legal and permanent, Sonny surprises himself, his family and friends as he comes to learn and accept real-life responsibility.
