In "American Psycho" Christian Bale plays as wealthy Wall Street business man Patrick Bateman, who is your ideal yuppie, and ideal serial killer. That's what make this film so awesome is the mix between the comedy and the horror, the switching from laughing at Bateman when things don't go his way to the grotesqueness of his murders.
The great acting by Christian Bale really makes the role of Patrick suit him perfectly. Originally Leonardo DiCaprio was mentioned to play the lead but once the director was changed Christian was chosen and I think this was great not only for the film, but to show the superb acting abilities of Bale for his future success as an actor.

"American Psycho" was a very underrated film and enjoyable for any thrasher fan out there. Also the humor is great resembling and making fun of the consumer-driven, image-obsessed people of the 80's, as long as your stomach can handle the gore and intense images of the film. After all, it still is a horror film.
