By anonimouse (Sat Feb 21, 2015 at 04:09:21 AM EST) fifty shades of disappointing (all tags)

Despite good reviews by The Telegraph, this film sucked balls.

I had the misfortune to read Twilight, and came away with the impression that the lead characters were so wet and drippy you could grow watercress on them, and so it was with Anna and Christian. Jamie Dornan doesn't seem to have any sort of a commanding presence that I'd expect in such a character, and I can't see what attracts Anna to the billionaire Christian.

Not certain but did I see a plot hole? Christian Grey drives Anna round in an Audi sports car in Seattle which somehow magically gets to Georgia the next minute by rainbows and unicorns.

About the only time I got turned on is when CurvyGirl asked if I was going to go to her graduation (in 2 years).

I think I'm going to have to go back and watch 9 1/2 Weeks to see if my memory of it is making it a better film than it was.

So there you go.

The most positive review I've seen of the film damned it with faint praise by saying that it was a much better film adaptation than the book deserved.

at least someone else remembers 9 1/2 Weeks.

I watched him throughout the movie and I think the look he was supposed o be going for was intimidating -- but he looked like he was constipated or was trying not to shit his pants. I couldn't quite decide.

@ThisisMikeyy: Fifty shades of grey is romantic only because the guy is a billionaire. If he was living in a trailer it would be a Criminal minds episode.

Reminds me of Debbie McGee by Metatone (2.00 / 0) #9 Tue Feb 24, 2015 at 08:20:33 AM EST
(from Wiki)

McGee was a guest on The Mrs Merton Show when she was famously asked, "So, what first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?"

"I can't see what attracts Anna to the billionaire Christian."

Now you know what attracted Anna to him.
