Fifty Shades is opening on Valentine's day. My friends and I had a heated debate about the book yesterday. Some of us just love it and some absolutely hate it. I fall in the "love" camp. I love Christian and how messed up he is. He's damaged but he wants to change and, for me, that makes him intriguing and sympathetic.
Don't get me wrong--if he was dating my sister I'd lock her in a closet until she got over him. He's seriously crazy.
Some of my friends couldn't get past the crazy, and I can understand that. But Fifty is a compelling romance and a great story.
Could the movie possibly measure up? I, like millions of others, will just have to wait and see.
