Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is about to graduate from college. Her roommate, a reporter, makes a big score by getting an interview with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), an ultra rich telecommunications magnate who is a young and handsome and filthy rich businessman. But she is feeling under the world, and so she sends Anastasia in her place. Mr. Grey totally overwhelms her in the interview and leaves her feeling pretty helpless, but he is smitten by her and so is she. Christian Grey, though, has had a very difficult life and is certainly not able to maintain a normal relationship. Everything has be under his control and under his terms. Anastasia is really a simple girl looking for a regular guy, but this guy is too amazing to let go, so she debates risking everything to agree with whatever he wants.

I had to catch this film when it came out on DVD. Why? I’m not sure, but I suspect it was simply to see what all the hype was about. It wasn’t a very good film. This guy needs to be euthanized. He has no morals of any kind and is one very selfish bastard. Ana, on the other hand, is such a weak and wimpy woman, that she kind of deserves some of the crap she gets. But really no person could tolerate this kind of relationship. Ok, I know there are people who are into this kind of thing, but the way Ana thinks and feels, there is no way she would even consider putting up with this bastard. The story is really weak, jumping from place to place at breakneck speed, but nothing is really ever resolved. There are scenes with his family, and with her family, but neither have much to do with the story in the least. I really thought this was a waste of time, and truthfully, it took me 3 days to get through this one, as I would get bored and turn it off. I really can’t comment on the books. Perhaps they are stunning literature, but the film was a waste of time. Perhaps that’s why critics tore it up and audiences stayed away. Personally I say, don’t bother with it. If you’re one of the naughty ladies who secretly read this, you’ll be very disappointed in the movie, and if you’re not familiar with the story, it’s not worth it, trust me. Stay away from this one.
