No, I was surprised by Fight Club's twist too. But then I don't think the twist really makes any sense. Once it's revealed you say "Whoa! Cool! This changes everything!" But then you think back and there are a lot of scenes that don't work if there aren't really two people there. Most obviously, why would people join their club if it wasn't two guys fighting that first time, just one crazy man beating himself up in a parking lot? The scene towards the end where Pitt is dragging Norton by his hair and in the security camera footage you see Nortan being dragged by an invisible ghost. C'mon. That's ridiculous.

Still, it's a very fun movie, inventive on so many levels, that I can forgive it. But Norton and Pitt being the same character, it's BS. The movie would have worked just as well without that twist.
