    What is the movie about? What is its message? What is in the briefcase? Why do people like it so much? Anyone?

    Have you even seen the movie? If not then I would suggest renting it.

    Gilbert --
    Joking aside, here's my attempt at answering your questions:
    Many reasons, but here are a few: The characters are fascinating; the events portrayed in the film unfold in unexpected ways that still link back to other parts of the film; and much of the dialogue is wickedly funny.

    The movie is about redemption and salvation.
    Literally, Vincent Vega saves Mia Wallace. Butch saves Marcellus Waalace. Jules saves himself by saying he is leaving the business. The Wolf saves Vince and Jules when he comes to clean the dead body. Jules saves Tim Roth.

    The movie is like Magnolia and Traffic, only with different characters, plot, and setting. It has a few stories but the characters may be in each story. Example: say that Mr. A gets killed on a thursday and you see that in story 1. He may be in story 2 because it takes place before that. Story 2 may even be about someone planning his death, which would explain why he was killed in story 1. All the stories and characters intertwine.
    Its a good movie. Its intriguing because its very good.

    I thought it was Marcelus' soul in the briefcase, IE, the band-aid on the back of his neck, the most beautiful thing you've ever seen.??

    I'll try to simplify it as much as possible. Pulp Fiction is a movie which contains interconnected stories told in an out-of-order fashion. It isn't until the end of the movie before the audience gets a totality of all the stories. What makes it endearing to lots of people is its way of telling those interconnected stories, its rapid fire dialogue, nostalgic 70's songs, pop culture references, and the "bad ass" factor.
