Here’s What Everyone is Saying About ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey PosterStill working on my “Fifty Shades of Grey” review, but will have that posted by tomorrow. My initial reaction is that the movie isn’t so much about the sex and kinky stuff, but more about this damaged soul (Christian) who lures a young girl into his weird world. I haven’t read the books, so can’t compare.

In the meantime, I thought it’d be fun to do a round-up of what everyone else is saying about the steamy movie – everything from the sex toy business to orgasms to what Jamie Dornan’s wife thinks and more.
