But most people who go to see this film are likely too wrapped up in an estrogen surge to actually watch the film with any sense of critical thinking.
It's the same, but opposite, with 50 Shades of Grey.
My wife has picked up the mommy porn and yeah - there are some pretty spectacular side-effects.
That said, she then tried to convince me that I might enjoy it. So I grabbed the first book and just flipped to a tame section in the middle. That book is High-School quality writing, at best. It's full of cliche'd crap and plot holes. Section of it are over-written as hell while other parts of it are just stilted and nonsensical.
It's an awful
book. That said, the 'estrogen surge' has women snapping the thing up in droves.
I'm not complaining here, but my God, they've kinda exposed themselves as the same hyper-sexed critters they've accused us men of being for so long. Frankly, I think the only real distinction is the lack of outlets.
