Well, it's official. The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie saw a lot of green at the box office this past holiday weekend. It broke records for a Valentine's Day weekend and President's Day weekend movie release, and will probably be responsible for a huge population increase this coming November. Just think about it....now you get what I'm saying.

I will admit, I have not seen the movie yet. I am so behind the times, I am still reading the third book in the series. Pretty sure this will be a movie I will wait to rent and watch at home, alone.  After reading all the buzz about the movie this past weekend on social media, here is what I have learned:

  • Although no lady would kick Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) out of bed for eating crackers, he does not quite live up to the Christian Grey "hotness" factor we have built up in our heads. He's too skinny, and too "boy next door."
  • The movie is good, but the movie in our minds while reading the book was so much hotter.
  • Dakota Johnson does a great job as Anastasia Steele, but they should have just cast Kristen Stewart in the role, cuz it's basically Bella Swan from Twilight in love with another man.

All in all, I will see this movie, and I do look forward to it. Be sure to comment below with your opinion of the movie if you've seen it already, I would love to hear what you thought of it!

Now, let's have some fun. Have you seen any of these parodies yet? Do you like them better than the real thing?
