Ok, so many of us have read the books of the 50 Shades of Grey series. I first heard of Fifty Shades of Grey when I went to lunch with a friend who insisted I read the books and called them “Mommy Porn.” I decided to check the books out because I was now pretty curious. We’ve all read romance novels, right? How could this be any different?
Well, yes, they were surely different. These books fell along the lines of the Penthouse Forum letters guys used to read (is Penthouse even around?). So, when I heard they were making a movie out of it, my first thought was how on earth are they going to replicate these books into a movie that is only rated R?
There’s been a lot of talk about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and oh how steamy it is! I know a lot of this is pre-show hype trying to get the crowds to flood the theaters, but I’m thinking they probably did their best to follow the books storyline and the quantity of sexcapades alone would make this movie appear to be a XXX sex scene on repeat.
With all of this in consideration, my big question is… if you want to see this movie, are you seriously going to ask your gal pals for a night out to go this show? My friend and I take pride in planning regular Girls Night Outs, but I can’t imagine this one being on the docket. I mean, isn’t it like asking your best friend to have a seat next to you while you ogle some porn? AWKWARD! And, if you choose to take your husband (since you hopefully are more comfortable with this option)… wouldn’t you prefer this feature to be viewed in the privacy of your own home rather than among a theater full of strangers?
I’m sure these minor discomforts won’t be stopping anyone as I see they’re having big predictions for Fifty Shades of Grey to bring in millions. Maybe I’m the only one who finds it too awkward and will wait for the DVD. Tell me, am I being too nutty on this one? What do you think and are you planning on seeing the movie?
