Dumb Things about Fifty Shades of Grey
Ok, now that the movie frenzy for Fifty Shades of Grey has somewhat calmed down.
Now, comes the nick-picking, pointing out the dumbest things with the movie and books.
In my opinion (if it counts) the books and the movie (which I haven't seen), aren't supposed to be serious material. They are fluff pieces of fantasy and entertainment.
However, if you really want to get to the nitty-gritty and pick out the flaws of how unrealistic it is compared to real life, here are several examples according to YourTango.com.
For instance, Anastasia doesn't have an e-mail address. This story takes place in 2011 and she doesn't have an e-mail address. She's in college she'd most likely have one through the school for assignments etc..
Or how about this, Christian Grey is a stalker. He shows up at her work, follows her around, he even knew what bar she was in when she drunk dialed him. Hmmm, creepy when you think about it.
Here's one more. Ana is surprised that coffee shops sell tea as well as coffee. Ok, really? It's 2011 and there's practically a Starbucks on almost every corner. Has she been living under a rock?

Again, I stand by this. The books and movie aren't supposed to literary novels or Oscar winning. They are for pure entertainment and fantasy.
However, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
