The 50 Shades Of Grey Movie Will Be As Pornographic As It Can Get Away With Being


If you thought it was weird to see people reading 50 Shades Of Grey, which is basically written jerk off material, out in public, just wait until you go see the movie among a crowd of squirmy soccer moms. Personally, I can’t wait.

According to The Sunday Times’ recently published profile of 50 Shades screenwriter Kelly Marcel, the movie is going to be as true to the book’s explicit sex scenes as possible, and probably more so, as we will not have to hear about them through Anastasia‘s comical, euphemism-laden voice.

“It’s going to be raunchy,” Marcel says of the film, which may very well get an NC-17 rating in the US. “We are 100% going there. We did go through and decide which [sex scenes] are our favourites and which are not. Most of them are in there, but I can’t say more than that.”

Translation: get ready for some hot, S&M-y, porn style banging fit for the likes of, minus the closeup shots of genitals and that whole “safe, sane and consensual” thing. Oh boy!

In all seriousness, I think this is a positive development, as the only reason for reading 50 Shades Of Grey that I can respect even a little (besides mockery, of course) is the fact that one might get off to its sex scenes. Different strokes for different folks.

On a related note, would you ever go see a porno in the theater, alone or with friends? I think it sounds a bit “Times Square in the ’70s” to me, which means I am totally into it, at least in theory.

      Who would ever see this movie? I think almost everyone goes to the movie theater on dates, or with family (think: holidays.) I would die.

      I’ve gone to see 70s porn in (horrendous) 3D before with a male friend. It was mostly hilarious, with everyone there just taking it as a joke. Also, the first couple of people to buy tickets got Babeland gift certificates. :) Of course, this is when I was younger, weirder, and more stupid. 50 Shades (if I see it at all) will be saved for a night when the boyfriend is out.
