    Opening this weekend. The NYT AO Scott review:

    This cracked me up a bit:

    "Ms. Taylor-Johnson’s sex scenes are not that much different from other R-rated sex scenes, though there are more of them and more hardware is involved. You know the routine: an arched neck, some curled toes, a buttock here, a breast there, a wisp of pubic hair, a muffled moan, another Beyoncé song. Maybe a riding crop for variety."

    Maybe it's because I'm a guy, but just from looking at the previews, what, exactly is the appeal of this movie?

    Girl hooks up with rich billionaire, they use riding crops and blindfolds, and .... Why should I care?

    Other than coming from a popular book, why is this movie getting such breathless hype?

    The thread in which Care Bear live-blogged her reading of the book remains one of the greatest threads in SJ history.
    I Should Coco, Mr. Sunshine and HC like this.

    There a link to that anywhere?

    Count me under the "IDGAF" category for this movie.

    Are "wisps of pubic hair" really all that common in such mainstream cinema sex scenes?

    This movie looks sexy as hell.

    I wouldn't pay a dollar to see this movie.

    But my wife is going out with a group of neighborhood women to see it tomorrow night, and I think all the husbands are very happy for them to enjoy a night out.

    Ya know ... if she comes home hornier and wants to fuck your brains into next week, that's a good thing.

    Yeah, I was thinking the husbands might find themselves a lot happier once the ladies get home.
