Donnie Darko’s Philosophy of Self-Improvement

April 27, 2013

Donnie 4

Donnie has a lot to say, but his contribution to the self-improvement literature is often thought to be especially endearing:

You want your sister to lose weight? Tell her to get off the couch, stop eating Twinkies and maybe go out for field hockey. You know what? No one ever knows what they want to be when they grow up. You know, it takes a little, little while to find that out. Right, Jim? And you. Yeah, you. Sick of some jerk shoving your head down the toilet? Well, you know what? Maybe you should lift some weights or take a karate lesson. And the next time he tries to do it, you kick him in the balls.

Well, you can’t fault Donnie for being overly concerned with moral dilemmas or touchy-feely stuff. And he’s right about not knowing what you want to be when you grow up. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

  1. Didn’t he also see a giant, sinister rabbit? I don’t think anyone should take fitness advice from a young man who has gone head first down the rabbit hole… 🙂
