Apparently, the trailer for the Valentine’s Day release movie 50 Shades of Grey has become the most watched trailer of all time.
Depending on the reviews, I might watch the movie when it comes out on cable. Might. I tried reading the first book and only made it to around page 139. I was bored. It was terribly written. I mean, how many times did the author need to misuse the words “murmur” and “mutter”? And do women actually have inner dialogues like Anastasia? Is there something wrong with me to think she was ludicrous?
I got a headache from the eye rolling I had going on. I’d say it went better than my reading of 2.5 of the Twilight books, which ended in me flinging a book across the room.
I tried to give these books a shot because they grabbed audiences and I couldn’t escape the hype. I still don’t fully understand why these were popular. It makes me bemoan the state of romance and the publishing industry.
Anyway, this morning I saw this video clip from Jimmy Fallon’s show and dissolved into helpless giggles.
